Armed Citizen Corner: Flying Prepared

Here is a tip for those of you that don’t like to fly “totally naked”.

Buy a couple of large metal climbing carabiners that are big enough so your hand can fit through them (JUMBO Sized)…similar to the ones pictured below.


Make sure to buy well-made Metal MOUNTAINEERING Carabiners that have some heft to them. Avoid Aluminum. The weight is important.

Clip them on to your carry-on luggage and then when you get to the plane discreetly remove them and clip them on your belt loops.

Now you have a TSA legally modified version of “Brass Paperweights” in the event things get hairy and you have to subdue a drunk passenger or take down Abu Snackbar.

Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!
