Since I'll be flying U.S. air to Phoenix from Philly I thought I'd ask about proper casing of your firearm, magazines and ammo for the flight.
This is how I plan to pack the P6. In a standard Sig blue case and I'll use 2 locks, one for each hole in the slideable plastic "clamps" on the case. It says ammo must be in original manufacturer packaging. I am assuming I'll be OK putting Federal HST's in that Hornady XTP box? Reading US Air's policies and the TSA guidelines it looks like I can secure the case as is and send it away as checked baggage. Should I instead also put the locked case inside my suitcase and check the suitcase?
Anyone have any other tips / advice for flying with a firearm.? I've never done it. Hell, I haven't flown since 2003.
