So in about 2 weeks my older brother will be flying in from our lovely:eek5:home state of Massachusetts into Birmingham-Shuttlesworth airport.

Due to his "budget" he will be arriving about midnight CST.:mad:.Like most airports it's not in a good area of town.

From what I've researched Alabama allows carry into the terminal/baggage area.

Since I've never carried in an airport I would like to know if there is anything more to know other than to avoid secure/TSA areas.

BTW I will be carrying consealed IWB.

Check your state laws or here Handgunlaw.us and if not illegal then carry on. Without checking I'd bet you're fine.


It's been a few years, but I have never had an issue coming or going from the B'ham airport but YMMV......

I have carried on the non secure baggage/terminal area of three airports in my state.
I have found nothing to indicate an issue with this.

I would follow the advice of other posters and check into the laws of your state.

Sounds like you're good to go so long as you don't try to get past TSA security. The law is the same in KY.

BTW, I stayed at the Holiday Inn at the Bham airport last fall for the Talladega race, and to say it's in the shady part of town would be generous.

That's from my LegalHeat app. In Oregon I walked right up to the police office in the airport. They didn't care about lawful CC.
