Ha... that's great. I had similar experience about 5 years ago at a small airport in California. The two screeners x-rayed my camera bag and then were doing a lot of discussing. One of them came to me and announced that they would have to hand inspect my bag... but very quickly admitted that they just wanted to look at the camera since they had never personally handled a Hasselblad. Since there were no other passengers waiting we spent 10 minutes together. I was flattered and they were thrilled.
