Delta Airlines has just announced that passengers may not fly with guns on any of its flights into the “Washington DC area”
When I travel I transported two pistols, several blades, and my FS/M4/SRO Version rifle, along with assorted magazines and ammunition.
TSA requires “hard” cases for firearms transport in checked baggage, but I don’t like flying with gun cases that look like gun cases.
I still highly recommend TSA-Pre status. You have to jump through some hoops in order to have it conferred upon you, but it repeatedly saves me significant time at airports.
Remember, leftist politicians, including most Democrats, want all Americans forcibly disarmed. Don’t expect protection from our courts or our Constitution.
Virginia Citizens Defense League member W.B. sent me this on his experience flying American Airlines while bringing along a firearm.
New York City arrests people who travel with guns–even when they notify and follow all TSA rules and have a valid gun license from their home state.
As long as they insist on putting bright, red “steal me” tags on my checked luggage, I won’t be flying American Airlines!
I guess “Aviation Consultants,” think cops have nothing better to do at airports than monitor law-abiding people, carrying lawfully owned and transported private property

I embarrassed them all when they realized the ticket agent and supervisor were trying to cover their asses for giving me false information…
I don’t fly for my health, so I need a system that generates minimum delay and works every time. And, I need to be heavily armed, no matter where I go.
The “something that must be done” self-labeled “progressives” never want to say out loud is the complete, forcible elimination of privately-owned guns in America…
Flying with a gun really isn’t that bad. Much like other gun laws individuals have made it sound more complicated than it really is.
A CPD officer was summoned, took the ammunition and said to me, ‘Why do you have these?’ I replied, ‘… for the same reason you do!
The TSA’s jihad against guns is merely another front in the feds’ war on the Second Amendment, a effort to render us impotent before our superiors in government.
Many I know don’t like to fly with guns at all, but I’m unwilling to be unarmed, no matter where I am, and no matter how I got there, so I make it happen.
