TSA officials say they found a man from Amsterdam trying to carry a loaded handgun past a security checkpoint last Friday at Albany International.
Officials say this marks the fifth handgun they have spotted at the checkpoint so far this calendar year.
Last year TSA officers found two guns at the checkpoint in Albany.
Officials are reminding the public that firearms, firearm parts and ammunition are not permitted in carry-on bags, but can be transported in checked bags if they are unloaded, properly packed and declared to the airline.
The man was not arrested.
