Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

The skinny? The skinny is my wife, my 2 year old and myself are flying to the northeast to visit family... If by some unfortunate twist of fate or bad weather your airplane, with your gun in your checked baggage, is diverted into either New Jersey or New York and you are forced to deplane, you have...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

.... I DO know based on TSA federal law that the passenger and the passenger alone must retain the key/combo for the approved locked container and possession of said container and not allow anyone else the ability to open said box out of owners view. I have also read situations where passengers wer...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

Within the last year I've flown out of both Hobby and IAH with a pistol, and it has been nothing more than an annoyance due to the line. I see you're in Houston, so I'm just assuming you'll be flying out of here. Easiest way is with a locked hard-sided case that fits in your suitcase. Personally, I...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

Last few times I flew, they started doing the "special handling" thing. Nowhere on the tags does it say "FIREARM!!!!!!!!", and they "special handle" other items of value or danger, so no federal law is being broken. I always unload the mags, no matter what the regs say, it is just the best way to g...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

Back in 2006 I flew out of DFW with an unloaded handgun in a locked box in my checked luggage. When I arrived at the ticket counter I declared what I had and they sent me to another area where I opened the luggage for the agent to see the locked box. I then closed it and he tagged it firearm. When ...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

I just retired from AA and I fly with a checked firearm every couple of weeks. Yes there are rules but nobody seems to know them. Tsa has agreed that "tsa locks" are ok for firearms and you are not " giving them the key or combo for it." That's what I use and it's best. They rarely need to open a b...

Re: Checked baggage containing a firearm.

If they're only tagging bags with guns that way, you're correct they're violating federal law. However, if they tag all "high value" luggage that way, so they get special handling and bypass the unsecured baggage claim area, that's different. In most airports now, nobody checks the baggage claim re...

Re: Bought My First Shield!

I love my shield. I've had it for a little over two years as my EDC. I've fired close to 5,000 rounds, if not more since I've owned it. Only two malfunctions. And as fate would have it, the first was in the middle of my shooting test. The funniest part about it, the guy I was shooting next to also h...

Re: I have a question

I drive a Montero sport. I designed and built a bracket to carry my pistol down by the front of the seat, in between my knees. I have a few pictures and when I figure out how to post them, I will. But my question is can I get into trouble by having the gun sorta out in the open like that? I mean it...

Re: I have a question

Ok, thanks for the input so far guys...

So what about this holsters that go under the steering column? Or a magnetic holster under the dash? Is the key here "not visible at all"?
