Any trouble taking your empty Sigg(or other metal water bottle)through security and onto a plane?
I called TSA and they were less than helpful. "If you can hit or hurt someone with something it probably won't be allowed but you can just try it and see."
Hit someone? Like with my shoe? Poke their eyes out with my sunglasses? Throw my DD's board books at someone? Use my shoelace to strangle them?
I'm not sure where the line of discernment is regarding what can and cannot be used as a weapon so I think I would ask around.
Anyway, just curious what your experiences are!

Now ds's light up shoes...that was a different story. lol. They had to take them and do a special screening because they "looked strange" on the x-ray. lol.

I wouldn't call it out though. I even put ours inside the backpack instead of outside it, just in case. Some security people get on a power trip and or have a bad day and then get pissy about a few drops of water on the bottom of a sippy cup, and I figure I don't need to call attention to myself.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
