OK gang, I need advice. I want to do some GSSF matches out west or at greater distances. I have driven from Columbus, Ohio to Ft. Benning, Topton, PA and Conyers, not counting the three of four hour drives to Indy, Brighten, Lexington and Marietta. I know some of you travel from Florida to matches in Texas and I know you fly. What is the procedure for flying with firearms in baggage. Do you ever worry about the guns being stolen once you get there? I was thinking of flying to Chicago and traveling 1.5 hours to the Milwaukee match instead of driving the seven plus hours. I know that if I ask here I'll get good advice. It seems that some of these air fares are cheaper than filling the van.
