Re: Airline travel with firearms
Thanks to all that replied. I've been away for a few days.
The good news is, I've been able to re-arrange my flights where the super short layover won't be a problem. It will now be a scheduled 40 minutes. More than enough time to make the exchange.
As for shipping ahead, I'm sending the ammo because there will be a little more than the allowed weight. In that same package, I might just send those things like the rear bag, new batteries for the electronics and the cleaning kit that will get the extra scrutiny or run the risk of being confiscated because they are evil in the tsa's eye. I'm shipping to myself c/o the destination and that destination is a FFL.
This weekend, I'll layout all the parts and pieces and cut the foam for the Pelican case. The plan is to have the scopes in my carry-on bag along with the RF. the rifle, tripod and cleaning rod in the Pelican.
The tolerant left has now come full circle and become what they once so despised.
