So I'm going to be traveling in a few weeks via Virgin American and I'm contemplating bringing a pistol with me in a locked hard-container in my checked luggage. I won't be bringing ammo with me. I looked around online and I found these regulations: Can I bring a firearm on a Virgin America flight? And the TSA (bleh) says this on their website: It all seems pretty common sense - unloaded firearm, safely secured in a locked hard container, etc. Does anyone have an additional advice or stories to share? I apologize if this topic has been posted before (I ran quick search and nothing stuck out immediately).
