    Search for the last 10 threads on this subject.

    Short version - unloaded, declare at check-in. Hard-sided suitcase or gun case with locks.

    I've flown with loaded mags. The ammo just has to be "secure." I had my wife wrap the mags in saran wrap. No problems. :dunno:

    ammo can be in the mags, but then the mags must be seperate from the firearm.

    Just wear it IWB into the terminal and you'll be fine.

    They don't advertise it, but it's fine as long as it's concealed. The metal detectors/scanners will be able to read your CWP through your wallet.. so no worries there either.

    This varies depending on airline. To be safe, just put the ammo into a factory box. Also make sure the box is full, people have been given a hard time for that.

    Locking case, gun unloaded, ammo in separate compartment. Declare at check in and you're good.

    That punk pulled a Glock 7 on me! You know what that is? It's a porcelain gun made in Germany. It dosen't show up on your airport X-ray machines, and it cost more than you make here in a month.

    Must be locked in an approved case with a key lock with no ammo in the gun, there are some federal guidelines, but airlines can have slightly different policies from each other. Best thing to do if look at the airlines site for their firearms policy, print that out as a reference and then call the airline directly and confirm the information.
