The closest I've ever come to this was a year or so ago at Bush Airport.
My niece was flying in to spend a few weeks with us. Since she was flying alone at age 9, I was permitted to get a 'companion pass' and enter the secured area to meet her at the gate, rather than waiting for her at baggage claim.
I disarmed, but left my Crossbreed inside my waistband (I don't know why, but it just felt good to do so). The TSA folks nearly had a conniption about it when I put it in the bin.
It took a level-headed TSA manager to inform them that a piece of leather and kydex that happens to be shaped like it could hold a gun (but isn't at the time) is less of a weapon than was the belt it attached to. He waived me on (belt, holster, and all), thanked me for carrying everyday, and pulled the two TSA folks off to the side for a bit of remedial instruction, I can only assume.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.www.HoustonLTC.com
