Apparently, he forgot it was in there, then I guess looked into his bag at the airport, saw it was in there and then alerted the people at the check-in counter that he was carrying a gun.
There are things in life you just don't just forget. A gun and a magazine is one of them. This doesn't exain how he forgot he had the gun there in the first place. You don't forget things like that.
