IME, (and I've flown through Denver a time or two), I put the card in the larger bag, right on top of the gun case.
FWIW, in Denver they always make me go back to some TSA X-ray machine or something, too, escorted by a flunky. Hasn't happened to me anywhere else.
It's good that most of us know the rules better than the people who are supposed to be checking that we are following them.
But it's very, very worrisome to me. At the risk of a thread hijack, I'll note my concern: the regulations and red tape (and the need to know and follow them) have a creeping, disincentive effect. Over time, there are more and more of them. They get harder and harder to know and follow.
We risk, at some point, that while we may still have one "right" or another, that they will become incrementally bureaucratized away. Impractical to assert and too cumbersome to exercise.
Think about what's happend to gun dealers (FFL's) over the past several years. Gotta have bars on the windows. Gotta lock'em all up every night. Can only ship this way or that. Only this carrier or that one will allow shipping of this item or that one. Gotta log this. Gotta log that. Gotta get this permit to operate in this neighborhood. Be open to inspection for dotted "i's" and crossed "t's", 24/7/52.
And those things influence what happens everywhere, even pretty pro-gun, rural southern and western locales.
I don't like the current trend, not one little bit.

I pointed out the empty magazine wells. She would not have a loaded weapon from an unloaded one.
That's happened to me at Newark, Harrisburg, and West Palm Beach. At Newark, I had a copy of the Rep. Don Young letter as well as EFMJ ammo instead of JHP.FWIW, in Denver they always make me go back to some TSA X-ray machine or something, too, escorted by a flunky. Hasn't happened to me anywhere else.
Clinging to guns and God in PA...
