Arrived in KC yesterday evening from FL.
Got my bag (gun locked in COM safe, cabled to suitcase) at the baggage claim, checked quickly to make sure the safe was still in there, picked up the rental car and headed to the hotel. When I arrived, and opened my suitcase to begin putting stuff out, I discovered that my Center of Mass safe appears to have been broken open. Part of the interior of the lock is missing. It's gone. Which leads me to believe someone jimmied the safe open. But, nothing is missing.
Haven't called the airline (SW) or TSA. I doubt it would do any good for replacement, but just to give them a heads-up that this is going on.
I now need to find a gun safe in a local gun store in order to fly back on Monday.
I am not a happy camper. Very glad my gun was not stolen.
ETA: I found the missing catch on the lock. I don't see how the safe could have 'come open' on its own. Packed in too tightly.
