    Thanks to all...lot's of good replys.

    I'll be flying in on a Tuesday and out on Friday, staying at the Marriott on Airway Blvd. All my customer contacts will be during daylight hours, and I'll be in my hotel room before dark, no bars for me.

    I am looking forward to some good Mexican food!!!

    I've already checked and confirmed that TX and NM honor my TN handgun carry permit.

    Thanks...
    I put the real question in bold and will leave you with another question:

    Do you remember Miami in the 1980's? If you do, you wouldn't even be asking this question as El Paso is the new Miami.

    Of course you carry so you can go by El Paso leather and get a new holster. Stop by the Tony Lama factory too to get a nice set of new boots!

    Rules for Taking Along

    Having traveled a number of times, here's how I go at it:

    1. Put the unloaded weapon(s) in a lockable hard-sided case with locks only you have the keys to open. TSA locks are not allowed.
    2. Check the airline(s) you are flying on:
      • Determine if the ammo MUST be in boxes OR can fly in loaded magazines.
      • If loaded magazines are permitted, make sure the pouches fully cover the magazines.
      • The round from the pipe(s) must be in a box, not loose.
    3. Secure and protect magazines and ammunition boxes from possible damage.
    4. Put the lockable hard-sided case with the weapon and the ammo/magazines into a cheap, non-descript bag - with clear labeling outside and inside - for checking in. The labeling should be limited to:
      • Your Name
      • Your Cell Phone - if you have one, or your home phone if you do not
      • Your personal email address - if you have one
      • NO ADDRESSES, JOB TITLES, ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD BE INDICATED
    5. Other stuff - like shampoo, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc, could be in this checked bag also.
    6. Have the rules for the airline in hand when you check this non-descript bag at the airport.
    7. Make sure you have the keys to the lockable hard-sided case with you and you alone (Per Federal Regulations 49CFR 1540.111 Carriage of weapons, explosives, and incendiaries by individuals - Electronic Code of Federal Regulations:) at all times. You will have to open the lockable hard-side case
      • to demonstrate to the airline that the weapon(s) are not loaded at check in
      • if the TSA wants to see.
    8. 8.Have the serial number(s) and descriptions of your weapons on you, so if they "disappear" you can report the loss/theft immediately to the:
      • airline
      • FAA Regional Office
      • ATF Regional Office

    Other things to consider:

    1. Check Handgunlaw.us and/or Pack-N-Go Carry Concealed Trip Planner to determine:
      • If you can possess the weapon at all your stops.
      • oWhere and how you can carry at all your stops.
      • What are the deadly force rules in each state you are visiting.
    2. Have a copy of the Don Young Transportation Letter on hand - http://www.anjrpc.org/DefendingYourR...s%20letter.pdf. This covers changing modes of travel - car to plane to car - in a single journey.

    I would. Do a search on this site. A lot of us have flown with our Firearms. Get the TSA and Your airline rules for flying with Firearms. Print two or three copys to take with You. Good Luck and let us know how it goes.
