I plan to fly to Michigan the week before Thanksgiving and would like to take my shotgun and my 45 S&W, does anyone have any post 911 experience traveling with guns? I know they can't be carry on naturally. 1. Is it even cost effective anymore since I could use the brother-in-laws guns but would love to play with mine. 2. Would/do you insure them and if so I assume you do that thru the airlines? 3. I know you have to use an airline approved gun case and the ammo has to be seperate but haven't seen ammo cases boasting airline approved. Have I missed that? Any first hand experiences and advise would be greatly appreciated.
