I did exactly this on a recent trip, when the "bag" was
a Pelican case full of camera gear (Pentax 67 for the
photographers on the list). I secured the case with two
tie-wraps, told the airline exactly what was in it, and
was unamused at it being delivered to me at the other
end minus the tie-wraps. When I asked the airline folks
shrugged and said "the government".

I too have had my shoes x-rayed. I really wondered if I
had heard them right when they asked...closest I get to
