    Air travel can be tricky. If you plan to travel with both a firearm and ammunition, you need to check if the particular carrier you are flying on allows the firearm and ammo to be transported in the same bag. Some do - others don't. Check their website and read carefully. It also can't hurt to call and confirm. Printing out the airline's policy is wise as well.

    I try not to fly anymore due to the atrocity that is the TSA, but I have a trip coming up that I have no choice. I have a slight advance due to a work qualification, but it doesn't do much. This will be handy.

    When seconds count, the police are mere minutes away...
    They'll never take your "hunting rifle", they'll call it a "sniper rifle" first.
    Zero failures comes at infinite cost.

    If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.
