I could have but I wanted to play it casual, and I also wanted to see what his reaction was going to be. Perhaps it was a little mean, I admit, but when I pulled out my ID he could see my tin and it calmed him down a little (fire dept.).

Oh, thats the part I forgot to tell you - it was swabbed - and my camera bag was swabbed when I went through boarding security and it lit up like a Christmas tree. Long and short of that (after everyone panicked) was that it picked up gunpowder residue off my camera bag, which I take to the range and to other shoots and is covered in GSR. I almost got a free cavity search along with them ripping my EOS D20 apart.
