" said she was entering my cell phone in some online record," That does not sound good. Are they using this shut down as a means to start a data base of gun owners??
As far as that goes, all the airlines that I fly have the means to establish a database of my armed travel. They already have my contact info, and I am declaring my firearm possession. I don’t know if, or why, the airline companies would spend money to keep a record of this.

Air Travel Update

First of all, the shutdown impacts are still lingering, There is still no TSA security in IAH Terminal B, so you have to check in at either C or E.

Second, the firearm checking process is slightly modified. The United staff did the normal inspection, then she added my cell phone number to the official orange card in my luggage (something new). She also generated a boarding pass sized printout of a special devices form that said I had a checked firearm. She gave this form to me... not sure what I am supposed to do with it. Maybe just a United thing. She also said she was entering my cell phone in some online record, and that all this was to help TSA because they were understaffed.

The only real impact so far is that I am hanging around inside Terminal C in case TSA pages me to come and unlock the lockbox or something. In the past, the TSA folks would look at it in my presence and give me the all clear.
