Accounts of Flying with Firearms
How have specific airlines and airports treated people who have flown with firearms?

Have you traveled by air with firearms? I would love to hear, in detail, how it went for you. If you'd like to tell me about it, please fill out this form and I'm more than happy to publish your account here.

 
Air Travel Accounts
The follow overviews give you a basic rundown of people's experience flying with firearms on different carriers via different airports. Air carriers should, in my opinion, take responsibility for errors that their employees make and that the TSA should work much harder to standardize airport operations and train their staff in the proper handling of firearm policies and procedures.
