    Question Interstate Travel...wish me luck

    So, due to a little bit of a family emergency, I'm going to be flying to Texas and then driving may daughter back to Vermont. I'm definitely going to CC on the trip. I think I'm pretty pepaired for the airlines and traveling by car. Here's a quick checklist I've what I've done to make sure I travel safely and legally.

    I have non-res permits from New Hampshire, Maine, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Those should allow me to CC while traveling through every state between Texas and Vermont..EXCEPT New York.

    I bought a new hard-sided, lockable pistol case for the airport and traveling through New York

    I have printed copies of the transporting firearms regulations from the TSA, United Airlines, each state I'm traveling through, and U.S. Code 926A Interstate Transportation of Firearms.

    I am not carrying more that 11 pounds of ammo, and the ammo I am bringing will be in the original manufacturers box....except when CC'ing of course.

    What do you think? Am I missing anything obvious?

    While traveling through NY I would recommend keeping the lockable gun case in the trunk of the car versus in the automobile itself. Sounds like you should be good-to-go. Good luck and safe travels!

    I note an earlier reply regarding Ohio that is incorrect. I suggest you go to handgunlaw.us for complete information.

    In summary, if you have a CHL recognized by Ohio, you have three options for transporting a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle:

    1. The loaded handgun is in a holster secured on your person
    2. The loaded handgun is in a closed case, bag, box, or other container that is in plain sight and that has a lid, cover, or a closing mechanism with a zipper , snap, or buckle, which lid, cover or closing mecahnism must be opened for the person to gain access to the handgun, or
    3. The loaded handgun is securely encased by being stored in a closed glove compartmentor consol, or in a case that is locked.

    If your route includes rte-81 you will also have to go through Maryland. Not a very gun friendly state.

    Well, I made it back in one piece with no troubles at all. I was a little nervous when I went to the airport when I declared a I had a firearm in my suitcase. The lady next to me gave me a look like I just said I had a turd in there. The people working the counters didn't even blink when I said it. They just asked if it was onloaded and locked in a case and was the ammo in the original box. I said yes and that was it. I was really surprised. I've had more trouble checking in my tool box in the past than I did my firearm.

    The road trip home was thankfully uneventful. My SA was on full alert, expecially at those big highway rest stops, but it sure was a nice feeling knowing I had that sidearm on me.

    And speaking of my sidearm. I was going to bring my Glock 23 (.40cal) with Winchester PDX ammo, but just before I hit the road I found a few boxes of Winchester Ranger 9mm in +P+ for sale, so I ended up bringing my Ruger P95 instead loaded with those instead.
