    You can, and I have, but I also got to have a conversation with the nice TSA officers. It was quick and they were professional but they still wanted to talk with me. Just you know.

    I stood 40' from the checkpoint at DTW to pick up a friend. A few female TSA agents gave me nasty looks, but that was it.

    They probably never even noticed your pistol...

    Yes - my wife has mastered what I call the micro-wave look. She attempts to vaporize me from the inside out.

    Well I have OC'd there as well and talked with TSA, the Sheriffs officers and was allowed to go about on my way with no issue.

    They were probably jealous that you had a gun, and they didn't.
