I know that transporting a firearm on an airplane has been discussed a billion times, but this may be a bit different.
I have to fly from Portland to Seattle. It is a 45 minute flight. I will be there on business and then return home the same day. (OK, OK, I am also going to be visiting one of my eHarmony matches. She is from Texas and used to carry a full sized .45 in her purse as a 20s something girl. I like her already.)
Since this is a one day trip, I will be bringing no luggage, just my laptop. I am wondering how I would transport my firearm.
This is a commuter flight, there really isn't checked luggage. And even if there were, in the past, I have seen crew members just hand passengers their luggage as they disembark. That doesn't work with a checked firearm as I am not walking through the airport with a gun in my bag.
Has anyone done this before? What is the best way to do this?
