The ammo doesn't have to be in a locked case, just in the card board box the ammo came in is sufficient for TSA requirements. They don't want any loose ammo, or loaded magazines, even if not in the pistol case.

The ammo cannot be locked into the same case with the pistol, that is a no, NO!

At the airport you have to check in with the airline ticket agent and declare the firearm, you have to open up the case, show it is unloaded (although I have never had an agent ask me to jack open the slide to prove so) fill out a declaration card and sign it, put the card into the case and lock it up, put it back into your check in luggage, and then an agent will usually escort you to an TSA scanner, inform the agents, they scan the luggage, and you are on your way.

Just make sure you know the local weapons laws at your point of destination. I don't have to worry about that, because being a retired Police Officer, I can legally ( Federal law) carry concealed in all 50 states, just have to shoot a qualification course every year to show proficiency.

Back home in Arizona anyone who is over 21 years of age, a citizen, not a convicted felon or nut job can open carry or carry concealed without any permit at all.

Funny but, my previous life time in Chicago as a Homicide Detective, they had the most restrictive gun laws in the U.S. and the shootings and murders there are much more horrific then what it is in Arizona, perhaps allowing honest citizens to protect themselves is the difference.

The bad guys are reluctant to start shooting, when the good guys can shoot back!

As the Past President of the Chicago Police Detectives' Association, I can tell you the average rank and file Police officer is not in favor of strict gun control, they by and large support the 2nd Amendment.

The only officers, who you routinely see on TV calling for more gun control, are the higher ranking officers, who in reality are political hacks in uniform!



I have actually been researching this very topic over the past month with no luck until now! Thanks for your reply!!

I have an upcoming trip to Nevada/Utah/Arizona, and I have been debating whether to take my firearm or not. I have a concealed weapons permit out of Florida and I also qualify under LEOSA. I rarely travel by air as it's too much of a hassle. This time I don't have much of a choice (time constraints). I have only taken my firearm once before on a flight (checked bagage, declared at ticket counter, etc). I purchased a firearms box from either JetBlue or Spirit Air (can't remember which); the issue I had was with the the ammo. It was packed in its original cardboard box placed next to the firearm in the same case. No problem with that while in Florida, however, on my way back home I was told it could not be in the same box. I now have two seperate lockable boxes; one for the firearm, the other for a small box of ammo.

The upcoming flight will not be a direct flight. I worry a bit about missing a connecting flight and what would happen to my suitcase containing my firearm. Also, I can't recall if the padlocks for the firearm box needs to be a TSA accessable lock or not.

p.s. As for the watches I'll be taking with me, I think I'll only be taking 2 of them; one set to Florida time, the other set to whatever local time I'm at.

I have this case for traveling, not expensive and the quality is very, very good. Provides very good protection and I put expensive watches in it...

I have a 3 case which will accommodate 4 if packed correctly. I also wear one, so in total take 5. The problem is which ones to take, and the risk of upsetting the ones left behind.

It's pretty small. I was able to fit this (an 1120) and a 1200 with my SLR into a 5.11 backpack along with my C-PAP and new Ball watch box.

The Pelican 1120 case is 8.41" x 6.76" x 3.87" and will take smaller standard padlocks.

Post trip note: I think it was overkill for actual travelling (I only had to taxi between my place of work and the ship), but in my cabin aboard ship it was reassuring to be able to lock it and know they would be safe when left behind in the cabin.

It absolutely cannot be a TSA lock. "Only the Customer checking the luggage should retain the key or combination to the lock." You may not surrender the key to another person for inspection out of your view. Do expect an inspection of the bag before you enter the secure area of the airport.

Besides, the TSA locks are VERY easy to pick (in most cases, however Assa Abloy has a high security one, but it is available built in on some luggage).

I only travel with one watch now. Problem is I keep buying different travel watches(GMT hand) and don't like them. So now I have 1k worth of travel watches I need to sell.

It would be nice if my Calif. CCW worked in other states but it doesn't. Gun stays at home.
