Somebody is giving you wrong information.Over heard a conserveation in a gun shop today about TSA requireing a special box to put a hand gun in when checking baggage at the air port, it has to be a box approved by TSA and one that they have a key that will open it. Any body know anything about this.
+1^^^Somebody is giving you wrong information.
They do not get a key to open it. It can even be a combination lock. They do not get the combination, either.
Old post I know, but the rules do say that it is supposed to be a lock that you and only you have the key/combination to.I put two TSA locks on my Pelican case, put the case in my luggage after the checkin inspection with the "orange form" inclosed and put another TSA lock on the luggage containing the box with the firearm. I haven't had any problems.
Wow. My brother is a TSA inspector and takes great pride in working to keep Americans safe in our skies. Neither he nor his co-workers approach anything resembling a Nazi. But mischaracterizing fellow citizens in this manner was one of Goebbels's favorite techniques. (see also Rove, Karl)...
