If you have ever flown with a gun, you know it is a simple process, and all you need to do is pack it properly, then declare it with your checked luggage.
A Texas man was headed to SHOT Show in Las Vegas and checked his de-militarized 84 mm Carl-Gustaf M4 recoilless rifle at the luggage counter, but someone forgot to tell TSA.
UPDATE: @TSA has confirmed that the passenger declared the item in question to the airline at the check-in counter but TSA was not informed. Out of an abundance of caution, TSA did not allow the item through baggage screening. https://t.co/W7CFK5M7nR

The TSA took the guy in for questioning, but later, they allowed him to rebook his flight and continue on his way. I thought the best part was the hashtag #safetyfirst from TSA. Hey, if you are out here and read this, look me up. Drinks are on me because I would love to hear the story firsthand.
