I’m gonna be flying to Montana soon (Glacier National Park) and was considering bringing my Shield .40 for carry. It’s not the ideal gun for theoretical angry beasties, but it’s the most practical to concealed carry while hiking and such for several days.
Anyways, having not flown with a firearm I figured I’d check for any tips y’all might have. I was gonna get a basic Pelican handgun case and solid locks (and a backup set incase TSA decides to cut the first). Ammo separate, gun unloaded and flagged.
RTIC is selling their handgun cases super cheap right now but supposedly the holes for padlocks are a bit small. Pelican also has their Vault line that’s slightly cheaper. Anyone have experience locking either?
Also open to any general recommendations or tips.
