TSA at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport stopped a woman over a particular accessory choice as she made her way through a security checkpoint.

In the woman’s carry-on bag were a pair of stiletto shoes. Seems innocent enough, right? Well, these were quite unique. The shoes featured a heel shaped like a hand gun and faux bullets around the sole. She also had a set of bracelets with the same faux bullet motif, AP reports.

TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein tweeted out a “friendly reminder” about what kind of accessories are not approved for airplane transit.

The owner of these particular shoes and bracelets was offered the option to put the items in question in her checked luggage, but ended up leaving them behind so that she could catch her flight.
