The Instagram account of the Transport Security Administration is a never-ending stream of incredible things people try to bring onboard an aircraft. However, they discovered a rather eerie object.

An ill-informed traveller tried to board an aeroplane with a 3D printed handgun, complete with live rounds, tucked securely in a carry-all.

Being plastic-made, the 3D printed guns are not spotted by the metal detectors. The ease of disassembling and reassembling also makes it easier to smuggle it.

TSA regularly discovers guns in luggage, with 68 guns found during July 29 to August 4, only 8 of which were NOT loaded. However, the 3D printed handgun is a rare find.

It has been reported that the confiscated gun does not match the online printing files it seems to be a self-styled weapon. As the 3D printing technology becomes mainstream, it is necessary to come up with better ways to avoid any unfortunate incidents.
