    Flying with guns and ammo

    I may be flying to Central Florida in September for a match. I have never tried to fly with my gear. Can someone give me some best practices? I know I can check the airlines site, but they just give me the rules, not the best way to follow them and not have nine bags to check. Thanks, Russ

    Here is a prior Thread on the subject. It might cover what you need.

    Those that give up their guns are on a self destructive fools errand. Tyranny shall never take what it didn't provide: not by paper, not by Court and not by force.

    I'll tell ya Russ,seems to me that after the airline fare,checking bags at $25 per pop or so,the TSA feel up,etc,etc . . . it would almost be better/cheaper to rent a vech and drive down. Especially if you could split the cost with another competitor. --- SAWMAN

    You could also FEDEX them prior to flying down. We used o do that with our surf boards when they started charging an arm and a leg to check them.
