Flying with my firearm
Hey guys and gals my wife and mother might be flying back east and I wanted to get a good TSA handgun safe, do you have any good safe in mind that I can look at? Thanks for your comments.

Secure-It Handgun Storage Safe
And not 100% sure, but I believe the plastic cases that most guns come with actually qualify as long as it's lockable.
(check the TSA site for latest info)
When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns
Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away
Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

I wouldnt fly east with a gun. If you get diverted to NY your a felon.

I always use the case my m&p came with. It must be lockable. It is surprisingly easy to fly with a handgun. I fly Delta.

I used to just strap it on, run the checklist, and go.
We don need no stinkin' TSA.
Of course, I was the pilot...YMMV with Delta or American.

this is similar to the one I purchased at academy sports for 29.99, three weeks ago was used to fly out of DFW to CHS and back zero problems with TSA

I used a pelican case last time I flew a gun- no problems other than TSA dropping the old revolver and breaking the hammer spur.

Flying with my firearm
I use a game winner case with a built in 3 number combo lock. 19.99 at academy. No issues checking it. The key locks on these types of cases are awful. I prefer not to have a key lock.

MODS - can we get a Sticky on Flying (commercial) with firearms?
I do this all the time that I fly (handguns and long arms). I'd be willing to do the research and submit some recommended text and (without endorsing any one product) some links for review. IM me if I may be of assistance - but this pops up quite a bit, and the Last NRA instructor I 'met' 3 weeks ago in NV gave some really poor and down right bad advice on the whole TSA/Air Carrier rules..................... because (he/she) never gets on an airplane and goes anywhere, apparently........
To the OP = 'bigpapa', I personally use a couple of different size cases from Strong Cases ( Strong Case by TnB Enterprises, Inc. - Reno Nevada - Home Page ) and almost every TSA agent I have delt with has complemented me on them. And yes, as pointed out above, get the TSA Locks, as well as zip tie (I use yellow since the TSA often uses white) your outer case checked luggage (not the one with your firearm = you always keep that locked hard and not with a TSA Lock). That zip tie keeps them more honest than the TSA Lock does........... just sayin.

This is a valid point.

If you don't take control of your bag, you never had the (most often legally transported) firearm in your control.
