Because of the shooting in the Ft Lauderdale airport on Jan 6 a big big conversation has started about flying with a gun.
A lot of people are surprised that you can take a gun with you when you fly. But it is allowed when the gun is in a TSA Approved Gun Case and the case is checked. They cannot be carried on the aircraft. You have to declare the firearm when you check in.
So I thought I would take a look at some approved cases that will get you through the airport and onto your flight without any problems.
