6 TSA Confiscated Items That Will Have You Scratching Your Head

6 TSA Confiscated Items That Will Have You Scratching Your Head

We all know the drill when it comes to going through security. Take off your shoes, pull out your laptop, make sure your liquids follow the 3-1-1 rule, and to leave your batarangs in checked luggage. Other than guns and knifes, TSA can find some pretty weird stuff. Luckily for us, TSA Confiscated stuff of interest ends up on their Instagram page, and needless to say, hilarity ensures.

Really makes you wonder, what were these people thinking?!?

1. Spear Gun

Call me Ishmael. To be fair to the person packing it, they did try to make it “safe” by wrapping it in tape. But Moby Dick is not flying coach, so leave the speargun out of the carry-on.


2. Mad Max Gas Mask

Two men enter the security screening, one man leaves. Thunder-dome jokes aside, it is actually surprising that gas masks alone are allowed in your carry-on, but this tricked out one is a no-go due to the shiny bullet replicas and the TSA Confiscated it.


3. A Sharp Enchilada

Another case of a non-malicious intent, it is still quite a large knife for what otherwise looks like a delicious enchilada. Now who brought the tortillas and 3.4 ounces of salsa?


4. Gun Blade

Here are two simple truths: Don’t bring a knife on a plane, and don’t bring a gun. And this goes doubly so for a knife shaped like a gun. You should leave these impractical weapons to the video game characters.

5. A Very Scary Movie Prop

This definitely had to turn a lot of heads as it was wheeled through security.  This life-like prop raises a lot of questions…like did they have to buy a seat for the prop? Who would want to sit next to it, and why did the person have it in the first place?


6. Lots and Lots and Lots of Guns…


Seriously, soo many guns. That is a lot of people “forgetting” they have quite the weapon in their bag. If you have a concealed carry permit, make sure you check your backpack/purse/ect. There is honestly no reason to forget you are carrying such a thing.
