Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. Okay, I'll be flying from Cincinnati to Alaska on Delta in two weeks and need guidance on how to travel with my pistol. Here's my thinking... When I go to check in at the airport I just tell them I have a firearm to declare. Then I fill out some kind of form or something. I'll have my unloaded pistol in a small locked hard sided gun case. What I want to do is place this inside my checked bag with my clothes to draw less attention to the firearm. I know my ammunition needs to be in the manufacturer's box but does this have to be locked? Can I just place the box in with my clothes or does it have to be in some kind of case as well? Would sure appreciate some advice and instructions from people that have flown like this. Thanks so much for your help in advance!!!
