Transporting on Airlines Transcript
Let’s touch quickly on flying with a handgun. It’s not as difficult as you might believe.
The gun, ammo, and accessories must go as checked baggage—not carry-on. The gun and magazines must be unloaded and in a locked, hard-sided case. Ammo must be separate from the firearms in its original packaging, or hard-sided container that separates each cartridge. No loose ammo is permitted.
You must declare you are transporting a firearm to the gate agent at the counter when you check in for the flight. Always consult your individual airlines and Transportation Security Administration regulations online before you head for the airport.
