Hello and welcome!, doing some search will always help you ...

taking laser on plane - different situation this time
Lasers on Plane

In my own experience, i gifted one of my 5mW green pens to my uncle last xmas, which was going to take it with him back to USA in his plane, so i told him to leave the batteries here and separate the two halves of it (it was a newwish) and he had no problems at all.

So i suppose there should not be any problem as long as u take it with no batteries, be discrete, use common sense and all that...

I don't know but isn't there a TSA web site that will tell what and what not you can carry on board an aircraft ?
since it's a 5mW that is OK in the USA but don't go telling them I said it was ok to carry it on board

If nothing else ask MFO he works for TSA...

Given the current state of paranoia when it comes to planes, I wouldn't.

I mean I might take one with me, but don't use it on the plane. Where are you going to point it? Out the window?

Scenario: you point out the window, reflection hits the guy standing up to go to the bathroom, he yells, flight is rerouted to nearest airport, you get a crap load of fines, and dropped on the no fly list.

Risk not worth the reward in this situation.

Good to know. I still think shining a laser on board a flying airplane is asking for trouble though.

@ReaperZ -

I guess this is a case of interpretation. I tend to look for worst case scenario and work back from that. Longest part of a plan trip to Cali, is the flight... Besides, if you aren't gonna need or use a laser in the plane, why do you need one in carry on? Unless of course you only take carry on with you, and don't check anything.

- ok, but why even bother with this? I mean to have the laser for the other part of the trip, what is the difference vs checking it?

I happen to also have a bit of a knife hobby, and as a result have looked into security policies and general carry laws. Bottom line, is unless you expect to need something, and can prove a reasonable expectation of needing to use whatever you are carrying... it can be seen as illegal.

Since original poster isn't checking in though, I think we're
