You can pack anything that a 'reasonable' person would want in your checked luggage. People even take fire arms (but they declare them) in their checked luggage for things like hunting trips. It is your carryon that will be the problem. Nothing that could be used as a weapon. Nail clippers and files, knives, forks, etc...And no liquids. You can have 3 oz bottles of liquids (ie. travel sized toiletries) in your carry on as long as they are in a clear 1 qt bag like a ziploc that must be taken out of your carryon when you go through security. No lighters either...put those in your checked bag. Don't worry too much, it isn't a big deal going through security.

Deniece Originally Answered: Am I allowed to carry shaving razor blades on my carry on?
I believe they fall under either 'safety razor blades' or even 'razor blades in cartridges' so both Canadian and US air safety authorities permit them. (I am assuming if you are not checking any luggage that you are not going too far away, or for too long). If you are worried, load a brand new cartridge onto your handle, and it should last your trip. BUT should the security screener decide to make you chuck it (even though their regulations clearly state that you can bring it) then you're only out one. Keep your handle, and buy a new cartridge when you arrive. Gillette is really good about making all their different cartridges fit every handle. DO keep them in a secure carrying case - if you don't have a closing case for the whole razor, keep the blade in it's holder. DO NOT pack it in your socks, the x-ray machine will see the metal right through them, and security will wonder why you are trying to be sneaky. You may wind up having your bags and your person searched with a fine tooth comb to ensure you aren't hiding anything else. Be understanding, security sees so many people in a day, and not everyone has bothered to check first. Just let them know that you would have put it in your checked luggage if you had any, and you checked with the regulations online to make sure you could bring it on board.

In addition to TSA, you should also contact your airline. Each airlines have their own sets of rules regarding number of carry-ons and check-ins. Most airlines have this information posted on their websites.

check www.tsa.gov it has everything you'd ever need to know for what you can and can't bring. then additionally check with your airline and they will give you size and weight restrictions for your flight and list any items they prohibit in addition to TSA

Alysa Originally Answered: Is it legal to carry a CCW Badge when you conceal carry your weapon?
It would depend largely on the badge's design, for example, here the sheriff dept has 6pt star badges, so a 6pt star ccw badge could possibly be considered impersonating an officer. IMO, a badge is not necessary. By legal definition, a concealed carry permit has to be concealed. There are legal implications for displaying or brandishing your weapon accidentally or intentionally. The good news is that if you dress nicely, many people automatically assume your an undercover officer. Go on the NRA website and read some of the news stories of when CCL holders have had to use their weapon in public. Most of the witness accounts given to the reporters have referred to the CCL holder as "an undercover officer" whose true identity was only known when the holder provided it to the responding officers.
