Funny story I read about someone checking a gun at Logan airport!

    They might still be standing there. It does not fit any of the options in the hand book.

    I think there might be a typo there. If he heard "yes" to the question if it was illegal to carry empty mags, then he'd be outa luck. I think it should be "no" based on the story. funny anyway, though.

    I'd be happy to dispose of two dozen rounds of 9mm. anyone care to entrust me to that task?

    With today's ammo prices the ammo he had to hand over probably cost as much as the magazines did (although still better than losing both).

    Nice story, not true unless it is really old

    You may only transport firearms, ammunition and firearm parts in your checked baggage. Firearms, ammunition and firearm parts are prohibited from carry-on baggage.

    I tried to take an empty magazine on with me 6 months ago and had to throw it in the junk bin.
