I would also place the bottle in the bag in such a way that when screened they only see the top looking down.. If you lay it on the side it is a large target of concern
2. The marker I would make sure the barrel is off ..wrap it in a towel or in the gun bag and it too I would stow in such a way that when screened they can only see the top looking down.. In other words the screener is looking at the feedneck looking down at the gun.. If you lay it flat it looks like an outline of a gun and is a target to be checked/inspected and a reason go through your bags.
Also, everytime i travel to Europe i put a huge paper saying:
This is a paintball marker and not a fire-arm. Neither the paintball marker and the tank are functional, they are completly dissabled and is in now way harmful.
I noticed that i have been checked 3 times because of my marker, never got in trouble or anything. But
always remember to never write down GUN, even if its paintball GUN, never write that down lol! Have fun watching Legacy, and enjoy the music they play on the ipod during brakes!!
