A fun USA travel loophole from the furry community came up in a birdsite thread about traveling with expensive drones.
If, like me, you're interested in flying with non-TSA luggage locks but not in owning a firearm, turns out a flare gun (without flares) counts as a gun for TSA purposes despite being harmless and legal to own.
@Rob_T_Firefly I have a friend who's a photographer who started doing this after the third or fourth time someone stole her equipment. Works quite well, she says.
IIRC the same applies to starter's pistols? can't recall details
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
