Well, there is one other alternative to both checked or carry on baggage.
This is the same level of "professionalism" one can expect from the perv in the peep booth, the leering screeners watching a woman get groped or the one molesting your six year old.
Exactly! That privacy and expectation of Constitutional rights(both for our person and our belongings) is one of the reasons we oppose the sickening practices of the TSA.
However, packing firearms for international travel usually is not a good idea.
There's a pitfall with this idea, if you're thinking what I think you're thinking. (If not, I apologize for having a mind in the gutter.) What if it becomes dislodged while you have to assume the position for the patdown? Oy, the hilarity!
It's just a matter of knowing how to conceal them just right. The red teams & some military spec ops have been doing this for years. Airport security only catches the amateurs.
Timing is everything!!

Inappropriate Note Author Identified and Removed From Screening
I note that "is no longer employed by the TSA" isn't part of the excuse. Any bets on whether "retraining" doesn't work, either?
I left a comment on the TSA Blog saying if the employee was not terminated then the disciplinary action was not adequate. Things like this happen at TSA because TSA is soft on employees.
These people are just sick. I can't think of any place except TSA where a person could do this and be kept on.
I've thought more about this story. It's bad enough when it's a sex toy, but what happens when one of the child porn loving screeners paws through my kids' luggage? I shudder to think.
Next time I fly I'm thinking about leaving chastising notes for the TSA wherever there's underwear or other "personal items".
Be careful as to the exact working on those notes. One teen left a "did you find the bomb" note inside checked luggage. He ended up getting a hefty fine for his trouble. His lawyer thought they could beat the rap but the kid & his family chose not to fight it.
Oh yes, of course. Mine will be carefully crafted, and in the style of a finger-shaking granny.
I'm thinking of taping a note to my...um..."toy" to let the TSA know exactly what I think of them. Hey, I can pack whatever I want in my own luggage! Not my fault if they paw through my belongings and take the time to read my personal...um..."toys", and sustain hurt feelings. Too f'n bad - leave your pervy disgusting paws off my things, you sickos!

TSA screener removed for inappropriate note
by Ed O’Keefe, Washington Post
A Transportation Security Administration screener who wrote a personal message on the back of a formal inspection slip placed in a female passenger’s bag is no longer checking luggage, the agency said Wednesday. The screener at Newark Liberty International Airport wrote the message on the back of a Notice of Inspection slip that TSA places in bags that require a physical search.
An agency spokesman could not say whether the screener had been reassigned, put on leave, or fired, citing federal personnel privacy rules.
The incident is just the latest in a series of unrelated episodes involving inappropriate or criminal behavior committed by TSA screeners. Here’s a sampling:
Now he's screening passengers!!!!!!!
I would bet my next paycheck on it!
