Toy guns

New Arrival

Are toy guns allowed on a southwest airline flight? The guns I have just make sounds, vibrate, light up, or have the barrel move

I'm gonna go way out on a limb and suggest that toy weapons are not the kind of thing you'd want to bring through security, into an airport or onto a plane.


TSA says:


Squirt Guns/Water Guns

Carry On Bags: No
Checked Bags: Yes

Water guns, toy guns, toy swords and other items that resemble real firearms or other weapons can look just like the real thing in an X-ray. Please pack them in your checked bag. Replicas of explosives, such as hand grenades, are not permitted in checked or carry-on bags.



If you do check these items, you bags are likely to be subject to additional screening.
