Also be very careful where you drive in NOVA. You can end up making a wrong turn and end up in a li ne to get into a secure federal restricted area by accident. Like the truck entrance to the Pentagon, or others. That would suck if armed!!!!
I flew from Burlington, VT to Richmond, VA via JFK last week with no issues. The JetBlue agent, a young lady, seemed a little annoyed that she was faced with dealing with me and my Glock. She had to ask what she had to do in order to check it in but the TSA guys were great.
I used the Gunvault that I usually keep cabled to the seat in my car and checked enough ammo for two magazines in a separate box. The TSA guys took my keys and opened the case while I was present and had me attach the unloaded declaration within the case, though I think in the future I will attach it to the outside if possible. They searched the rest of my bag, sent it through the scanner and it went on to the baggage area. Took maybe ten extra minutes. We'll see how it goes from RIC back to BTV. Wicked easy and I will def continue to travel with a firearm when I can possess at my destination.
