    From Northwest Airline's website: "Guns and ammunition may be in the same piece of luggage. However, ammunition must be within its own packaging."

    NWA website: Special Luggage Items

    TSA rules at: TSA: Traveling with Special Items

    I would have insisted on reviewing NWA's airline's written policy with the agent, which should be available to her in either book or electronic form. We would have quickly discovered the above clause; end of problem.

    I always review TSA rules and the particular airline's rules on firearms before I fly with one.

    TSA confiscated my tube of KY Jelly three weeks ago as my wife and I flew to Cancun. I was afraid that was the end to our plans for fun and games, but we replaced it the next day in Mexico, but trying to explain what we wanted to buy to a Mexican pharmacist, with us having no Spanish language skills, turned out to be frustrating. Nancy finally resorted to a hand signal demonstrating what we wanted the product for and within 15 seconds, a tube of KY Lubricante was on the pharmacist's counter. I asked her how she would have asked for Preparation H.

    I had this similar thing happen leaving Houston a couple of years ago.
    The Southwest agent told me I couldn't have the ammo in my locked container with the gun! I said, well according to TSA and your company's website I can. He pulled up the Southwest website on his terminal and allowed me to "assist" him navigating to the portion of the site and he was educated. I went on my merry way.
    I always take a printed copy of TSA firearms regs as well as the airline's.

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
