Last time I flew with a firearm was before 9/11 from Miami, Fl. to Billings, Montana to hunt...was pretty painless. ID and my ticket was what they asked for, the case had to be FAA approved and a lock provided. They wrapped the case in a yellow tape that stated "unloaded firearm" over the latches and the lock. When I picked up my luggage at the carrosel, I had to go to a pick-up window and sign for the case. I didnt dare to open it in the airport even though I was in a very gun friendly environment but did so @ the rental car joint. Hope it works out for ya...no reason it shouldnt.My dad gave me his Remington 1100 shotgun. He lives in NY, and I in FL.
I'm traveling up there for work reasons, and want to return with the shotgun.
I've checked with the airlines (Delta) and have an understanding that the hard case must be locked, and the weapon must be unloaded, and I must declare at the counter that I'm checking in a firearm so I can sign some forms.
As hard as I've tried, they won't give me the forms ahead of time so I can know what info they require. For example, do they require the S/N, etc?
Anyone have advice or tips for me? Especially with it being NY (La Guardia), I don't need any trouble, and want to do this the right way.
