    Wondering, does anyone make a small gps chip that could be placed in your gun case or recessed into your stock. Kinda like a LoJack for guns. This is the only way I would travel with my gun on an airline.

    You could put one of these in your case somewhere discrete and track it real time.

    ...or spend a little more and get this one that might fit inside the stock cavity and concealed when the butt pad is reinstalled.

    I thought it would be a good idea in one of those camo turkey guns. Set your gun down when nature calls and not be able to find it.

    I have to add some technical stuff to this conversation. #1. It cost more than insurance. #2. It needs a power source. We have sold thousands of GPS units and generally power from a vehicle's 12 v system or internal batteries as small as a large pack of gum. #3. The GPS receiver must track a 450 watt radio signal from at least four satellites orbiting at about 12000 miles. Difficult to do if the receiver's antenna is in a gun case. #4. Must have imbedded cell phone to transmit the location. I make my living selling and training people how to use GPS. You' de be better off with some good insurance. But, if you need GPS for tracking, surveying or construction let me know.

    Maybe it`s just me, but it sounds like something the government would dream up.
