How to handle lionfish?

How do you guys handle a lionfish when you come home with it? I mean without being stung of course. The transfer from bag to tank scenario.?And of course acclimating the fish.

If you have a container large enough to transfer it, this is way preferable to nets. The spines can get tangled. A large tupperware type container might work.
