Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

Pursuant to TSA rules, rifle scopes are permitted in carry-on and checked baggage. So technically, there should not be an issue. Practically, you may be asked a few questions when they see the scope, since TSA agents are always on a look out for anything out of the ordinary.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
