How to avoid luggage being tagged "FIREARM INSIDE".
I have a Florida Concealed Weapon License and will be flying to Ohio in August.
I know that Florida and Ohio have reciprocity for concealed carry.
I plan on taking my .45 ACP Colt Combat Commander on my trip.
I have gone to the TSA and Delta Airline websites and know what I can and can't do, and what I need and need not do.
Here is my question. When I check in at the counter and advise that my firearm is in a locked, crush proof container, how can I inform them that I do NOT want them to place a big orange or red tag that reads.. "Firearm, come steal it!!" on the luggage that will contain my locked crush proof container?
We just had four baggage handlers at Tampa Intl. Airport busted for theft from luggage, and I would like to avoid being another victim.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. :smt023
