TSA PreCheck (branded as TSA Pre✓) is a Trusted Traveler program initiated in December 2013 and administered by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration that allows selected members of select frequent flyer programs, members of Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI, members of the US military, and cadets and midshipmen of the United States service academies to receive expedited screening for domestic and select international itineraries. As of March 2019, this program was available at more than 200 airports.After completing a background check, being fingerprinted, and paying an $85 fee, travelers will get a Known Traveler Number. TSA does not issue an ID card like Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI do. Travelers are notified if they have PreCheck by having a indicator printed on their boarding pass that may say "TSAPRECHK", "TSA PRE", or "TSA Pre✓®" depending on the airline and type of boarding pass.The program has led to complaints of unfairness and longer wait lines. TSA says that PreCheck is not guaranteed every flight, as passengers are subject to random exclusions. Furthermore, passengers may be disqualified or suspended from PreCheck for violations of federal transportation security regulations.The TSA maintains a list of credit card issuers and loyalty programs that reimburse members' TSA PreCheck or Global Entry application fees.

Makes me wonder those that have firearms may be automatically...
My brother has been using it for a while, I just applied for a trip I have to take in November. Sounds like it makes the process of getting through security at most airports much easier and faster (shoes stay on, belt stays on, no need to unpack laptops, etc. from your bag, shorter lines).
I am a WA resident . Want to travel on an airline and transport a shotgun with me. Some confusion about TSA requirements for the case. TSA says a "hard case , locked, keys in your possession" etc.
Some forums say the case cannot be a simple plastic case like a Plano or Flambeau. However...
Flew with my rifle to Salt Lake, and did some long range shooting in Wyoming after work hours.
Checked my rifle through on the way back.
At the TSA screening, the agent scans my ticket and says, "Oh, you have a firearm."
I didn't know they embedded that info into the ticket code.

PSA-Flying with Firearm PARTS? Don't EVEN! - The Firearm Blog
We are not talking about a receiver, the article above is about a PMag a writer got as 'swag' at a gun event.
Not a 'danger weapon' as TSA claims - I would bet that if someone had to go to court, and they had a smart knowledgable...
Hate Being X-Rayed? Show the TSA the 4th Amendment.
So you’re in the airport getting X-rayed by the %$#&%$ TSA, and you want to make a statement. Well, here’s one way to get that done. It’s underwear printed with the <broken link removed> in metallic ink, so it will show up on TSA X-rays in...
I'm flying to Alaska to go deer hunting next week, and I'd like to take my suppressor along. A quick Googling shows that I should be able to throw the suppressor in the case with my rifle and check it, but I was wondering if anyone here on the forum has ever flown out of Portland with a...
