Grr... Can't edit from my phone.

The point of the locks is to prevent anyone from accessing your gun without you there, including TSA.

I fly all the time and take my pistol everywhere I go and often my AR.  I've never had a problem.  I usually fly Alaska, Delta, or United.  It's too bad you all have had such trouble.  I have never been hassled as long as I make sure I'm following TSA regs.  

I think the best idea is to do what SacRyan recommends.  Lock it up inside an already locked box and you'll have zero problems.  Just be ready for girls behind the counter to get all skittish when you mention guns and allow yourself a little more time at check in.

Last day I flew with my A-60 semi-automatic pistol to a Restautant with my wife. People who were sitting around me seemed very fascinated on seeing my black shining gun as I put it on the table. Then I realised it was not a proper etiquette. :tongue:

If a person with gun and ammo follows rules outlined by the Transportation Security Administration he could carry the firearms with him when he travels by air.
