It isn’t uncommon for frequent flyers to avoid bringing their firearms to their travel destinations due to the fear of being interrogated by TSA staff. While every airline is different depending on which one you use, there are basic rules that can be followed in order to ensure that you won’t face any repercussions. Individual airlines will also provide you with a set of rules when it comes to transporting your firearms to ensure that you are adhering to their regulations.
- Before traveling with guns, or similar weaponry, check out the federal rules and also those specific to the airline you’re going on, as they may be tighter.
- It’s important to pack your weaponry according to TSA approved methods and also declare your weapons, once you are at the airport.
- A TSA approved case for a gun should be a hard shell case that is inflexible, with a lock that can not be pried open.
