    Great info Nick. I usually print the relevant info from their website the day before I travel. They update the website more frequently then the printed copy of regulations that are distributed among TSA agents.

    is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist '.

    I did actually have the intent to take you and Scott out for your bdays but I wasn't expecting to spend so much time on the F.A.T.S system. But not to worry you'll be getting something that I think you'll like just as much.

    Along with the TSA regs, be sure to check your airline's website for THEIR interpretation of the regs. You may be perfectly legal, but if the airline sees it differently, you might not fly. When I flew to Alaska recently, my locked, hard-side pistol case had to be in a hard-sided suitcase, not just a "lockable" case as described in TSA regs.

    It's not really an issue of their interpretation, it's what their policy is. Some airlines charge excess baggage fees for firearms period regardless if it's in another piece of luggage. Some exclude lost firearms from lost baggage claims. Some plain don't allow firearms. Read their contract of carriage and their baggage policy thoroughly before you make your reservation. The better airlines defer to TSA regs and don't have any weasel clauses in their policies or contract of carriage.
