Thread: Just made my first trip with a handgun

  1. Just made my first trip with a handgun

    Not much to say, actually... It went very smooth. Hi, I'm traveling with a handgun in my checked baggage today. Ok, open your case. Is it unloaded? sign this. Have a nice flight..
    However, the TSA did hassle me in the security line, because they didn't like the size of the baggie I had my shaving creme and aftershave in.
    Oh yeah... There was a sign saying I couldn't bring and printer toner cartridges on board the plane.
    Ya gotta love this country...

    I'm glad it went smoothly for you just as it should. I've traveled with my guns many times and each time has been just as pleasant and hassle free. I'm bringing my pistol home to Ohio in a couple weeks here.

    Glad all went well. Just curious, what airline did you fly on?

    Too much gets stole from luggage for me to ever check a Gun.

    Allegiant Air - Rockford to Mesa, AZ. Folks in Mesa were quite experienced. The Illinois agents were less so, but there were no problems at all...

    You can ship those to yourself care of another person in another state. They should be instructed to not open the package. You might have to go to an actual UPS or FEDEX hub or shipping location, though; and maybe have to show them their own regulations. The counter person, especially at a retail storefront, may not know the laws. For sporting purposes only, obviously.

    If you've ever ran out of printer toner on vacation, you would know the value of having extra!

    I just made my first trip with a handgun this week. I used curb-side check-in for both flights and realized an unexpected benefit. I walked up and said "I need to declare a firearm" and in both cities I was taken straight to the front of the line for the TSA inspection. No waiting
