    this is also airline specific. I'm pretty sure various airlines have different rules/stipulations, so check with who your traveling with first. Every time I flew I left ammo(which I think is required) at home and bought where I was going to. Declare your firearm when you check in, they will inspect that it is not loaded and you get a nice orange sticker on your bag. Thats pretty much it.

    I know the TSA and airline regs. i've traveled with firearms before. i was looking more for any state regs. like new york, if you try to fly with one, just entering the airport with the gun is an felony.

    This breaks down where you can and can't carry, and is pretty straight forward.

    As long as you are storing it properly they are not "supposed" to be able to charge you with anything.

    I've never had my bags marked in any way, it's my understanding that they are not allowed to mark the bag to indicate that it contains firearms.

    I usually fly southwest(and have a lay-over somehwere). I was always given a tag. Not that it specifically said firearm, I think it stated that the bag has been inspected and is "safe." This usually only happens when you have to declare something though. Of course its been a while since i have flown with a firearm....
