I am planning to attend a shoot and travel by airline. I haven't done this in a while and am concerned about stealing of guns checked as baggage. I have recently heard of guns in Americase's checked as luggage -the cases were opened, and the gun was removed.It is suspected that TSA or the handlers are stealing guns from cases.
Does anyone have any experiance traveling by air w/ their guns or have heard of any recent problems.The airline I will be using is Alaska Air.
I have thought of shipping ahead to avoid the airline issue,but that would cost about $400 round trip and where could a guy ship to for a shoot?
