Sun Country Airlines

Postby ADulay » Sat Nov 17, 2018 9:38 pm

All,

I have been forced to actually get on an airplane (after avoiding it for 11 years) and will be flying Sun Country up to MSP in December.

Anybody have any experience with firearm transportation with them or anything in particular they want to see in a hard side case for a sidearm?

Never had a problem......
they do not like loose ammo...
specifically their rule is: ammunition must be packed in manufacturer’s original container or equivalent which provides for sufficient cartridge separation

It’s no big deal.

Go to the firearm check, unlock case, show them it’s empty, lock it up.

Godspeed.

Thanks guys.

Just wanted to make sure they didn't have any "special" requirements.

Say, "I have an unloaded firearm to declare" to the ticketing agent, and they'll take it from there. Don't unlock the case and show them anything unless asked; they probably won't ask. You'll sign a little orange card affirming your gun(s) is/are unloaded and in a hard-sided, locked case, and place it on top of the case in your bag (a small piece of tape pre-staged on your case works well). I always write my phone number next to my signature on the card in case the TSA needs to get ahold of me to further violate my rights.

Your gun case needs to be secured with non-TSA lock(s). A standard TSA lock goes on your suitcase containing the gun case. The main things they're looking for in the case is that it locks and can't be easily pried open by hand. I use something similar to this, but with a keyed lock, and can fit a full-size pistol plus a subcompact: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003841ZBS

What he said. DON'T OPEN THE LOCKED GUN CASE. Unless you like to be anally probed by TSA.
