Can I bring my spurs through security at the airport?

I'm flying out to New Mexico for a horse gig and I'm only bringing carry on luggage. These days with the numerous thing they disallow do you think they will take my spurs from me? Thanks for the help!

I would call the security desk and ask, but I wouldn't count on it. If they won't allow a pair of nail clippers, I can't see them allowing a pair of spurs.

Your only option may be to pack another small bag and check it for travel in the cargo hold. It would increase the time you spend at the airport, but you'd get there and have your spurs.

I have and know many people that have with no issues. If you're concerned, you can call as mentioned above.

Ive called before and was told something was okay and I still got fussed at. Do you know anyone over there? You could overnight them to yourself and back.

What kind of spurs are they? For the smaller English style spurs that just have a tiny nub, I can't imagine there would be a problem. For the biggest Western spurs with giant spiky rowels, there's a good chance they wouldn't be allowed. Anything in between...

Well since my bf is an airline pilot I can tell you that it depends on who the TSA agent is. You can call but you will have no better information than if you ask a dog, seriously. If the TSA agent is having a bad day they will probably make yours as well too. Some just don't care and some think they are the law.

Don't do it. Either mail them there and back or buy a pair down there then ship the extra back home. Not worth being detained over.

Where are3 you flying into and out of? Albuquerque/farmington/Las cruces doesnt let you have spurs.. I've tried before and beent old by multiple airport people that I can't have em. I would just buy a pair there and ship em home.

P.S. Say high to my desert for me!!!!!!!

I love the line -well they could be filed in to something that could cut the wiring. Huh?? If a file isn't allowed, how would one file a spur?
