I know a number of people who are keen shooters at home who self-discovered they were travelling with live ammo. It is surprisingly easy to do. Usually using a range bag as carryon bag is the problem but not in this case.

 

Only a idiot would take any regular range gear to the airport.

 

One random swab, and you are up for a full bag and body search, and a lot of questions to answer, and who knows what agency your name may be forwarded to.

As well as being charged, this guy needs thorough back ground check, and not just in Thailand.

 

Pending the results of that check, maybe he should go on a terrorist watch list.

I totally agree but trust me it happens.  One guy tipped out his bag in USA and a few 38Super rounds fell out.  Another was discovered with a loaded Glock mag in a side pocket of his carry on bag.  Stupid but true.  And I know of other cases.........  Duh.  Lucky Singapore and a few other countries were not involved.

I don't doubt it happens, but people who do not take gun power residue into consideration, not to mention live ammunition, magazines etc, before flying, deserve everything they get. 

 

Trouble is, they hold the queue / flight up for the rest of us. 

 

They would probably have the same stupid look on their face if the searcher pulled out 1kg of white power. 

 

That said, when I read the headline I did cast a thought to the "bullet in the bag" scam, which is common in

The Philippines.  There were a couple of cases of this here, sometime ago, by seemingly innocent tourists, but it didn't seem to become a prevalent scam, thankfully.

In his friends luggage on another flight. Do the Thai authorities consider the possibility?

And how do you explain the magazine????

 

The rest of the "hardware" must be somewhere.

Southern Sudan is black African. The north is Arabic.

They don't like each other which is why there was a civil war that was decades long.

The north controls the south, or, at least it did until the world's newest country was created, called South Sudan.

That war is larger than ever and still ongoing, unfortunately...The fight for oil and its prosperity, creates war lords and genocide

Pure speculation based on fiction.

 

Mohamad, son of Mohamad most likely forgot to empty his tactical bag, Mohamed son of Mohamad must have been playing around with his Dads Mohamad stuff whilst he was packing.  Those rounds were left overs from target practice at live elephants at cousin Mohamads hunting hut in the national park when Mohammad's gun jammed. Just ask Mohamad, Mohammad, Abdul, Mohamad, he knows. 

 

Just kidding,  Mohamads not going to tell you that, at all he's on his way to training camps in the deep south.

 

Scary!!!

But they would all be good Muslims wouldn't they?    Buddies from the religion of peace, with just a slight disagreement over Mohammad's correct line of succession?

No, the south of the country is mainly Christian, or animist.

Did not know that.  Not much of an expert on Africa.  Thanks.

And what about the gun? The guy had only ammo and not a gun so it also could have been just a careless mistake?

 

Under the current hate climate, obviously his name would not help his case!

 

Let's keep in mind that gun possession laws in many countries (including a few in Europe) are lenient or non existent.
