Flying for the first time
So Sunday I flew for the first time with a checked firearm. I flew from DFW to Colorado Springs. TSA/AA at DFW had me walk from one end of the terminal to the other so a guy could pull everything out of my luggage and rifle through it, as well as running that swatch over nearly everything in it.... No one really made a stink about it, but I did find it odd that they thought I would willingly tell them about a firearm and the ammunition, yet I would somehow try to sneak something else by them in the same luggage...
It took me about 20 extra minutes to get through security, but I had the time so I wasn't too worried.
I carried for the past few days in Colorado (except when I was wrestling alligators) with no problems and tomorrow I fly back from Colorado Springs so we'll see how that goes.
