After reading a bunch of threads about flying with a firearm in your checked bags I had thoughts of all kinds of things going wrong etc..... Some guys make it seem like this huge process. CO - Me - declaring an unloaded firearm Them - sign this tag, put it in your case and lets take your luggage to TSA. TSA - (after scanning bag) looks good to us, bye. TN Me - declaring an unloaded firearm Them - sign this tag, put it in your case and TSA checks it right here. I watch TSA scan the bag and throw it on the conveyor belt, done deal. The counter people could care less and TSA never even wanted me to open the suitcase up. Luggage arrived like normal. Don't be intimidated to fly with your firearm. There is nothing to it.
