If the scanner is setright, will detect any contrband

That is trying to be taken aboard a aircraft..

Oh well thats life...

It is a hand held metal detector.  It does not "sniff" for drugs or explosives or detect non-metallic objects. It does not create a comparative contouring image as stated above. There are other devices in the security areas that do these tests and most are walk-through devices, some requiring you to stop momentarily (sniffer machine that is a "booth" type device that creates a "puff" of air against your body, and the full body imaging device that has created so much controversy).  I hope this helps you and other readers,  and not for possible detection avoidance.

Choose to make it a great day, my new Friend!
