Well I've not thought about what happens when the airlines misplace your rifle until recently. My uncle lost his rifle/case on a return trip this past year and it was gone for a month. They were getting ready to consider it a lost cause and cut him a check for $3,000 which is a third of replacement value of what was in the case. They finally found it and he was forced to drive 300 miles to pick it up. What is the easies way to insure (replacement value) your expensive shooting systems while flying on a commercial flight. At some point in time you used to be able to take out insurance directly from the airline. Apparently that is not the case now. Is it easier to get a policy through my homeowners insurance or is there an easier and less costly way?
