Whether you are carrying open or concealed or using your gun on private property or in the public sphere, you are well acquainted with the safe and legal way to carry in your state. However, the parameters change if you are crossing state lines with a firearm, and it's critical to do your homework before you travel with your gun.
Traveling via commercial airlines introduces another level of complexity to traveling with firearms. Outside the doors of the airport at both your embarking and destination cities, local laws apply. However, once you step into the airport, TSA regulations are in effect. You may not bring any firearm related item with you in your carry-on luggage, including ammunition and gun parts. Firearms can be transported in checked bags providing that they are unloaded, locked in a hard case and properly declared. You must also have a key available on your person if a screener wants to inspect your gun more closely. You may be limited in the amount of ammunition you can transport, and it must be packed separate from the firearm.
With just a little preparation, you can safely travel with your gun. Make sure your gun is packed legally and have a proper holster if you are allowed to carry concealed at your destination. Concealment Express has a wide variety of concealed carry holsters to ensure that you are in compliance with the laws when you are crossing state lines with your firearms.
