    That was just this year in Aug, I flew back into the states to Dulles and had to go through customs and the security check and it never showed. Also at Johannesburg on the return. I wear it low so maybe they think it's an adult diaper! LOL

    First I think James meant after you are at camp. I would not put cash in anything that gets loaded on the airplane. On my recent trip I put all my cash, passport etc., in my ammo case, locked it, put that in my Tuffpak and locked it as well.

    As well as TSA is concerned, I have put all sorts of stuff in my Tuffpak. In larger airports all TSA does is to check it with the chemical sniffer, they already know weapons are in there and X-Rays can discern the stuff anyway.

    you mean you can put your locked ammo box in a locked riffle case??
    l always utelise the space in both ammo box/riffle case and bow case , with knives, slings,cleaning case, clothes.
    usually my bow case is my suit case.
    but if you put ammo and fire arms together , they wont get out of Australia.
    I always make a point of asking why my arrows ,with broadheads can travel with my bow in the same case , but customs/border protection , don't care.......

    You misunderstood me, I said AT CAMP. That being said one can put the ammo in the gun case on US flights originating from the States as long as you are going non-stop to your destination (if international), it is not against TSA rules but is dependent on the airline. On Delta I have put them together.

    Now, in most cases one would use full 11 pounds of ammo allowance. So, it makes sense to put the locked ammo case in the checked luggage separate from the gun case in order to be below 50 pounds and not pay excess luggage fees.
