I did not post a personal opinion. I like how you repeatedly foolishly assume I did.I belittle others only if they post incorrect information that is based on their personal opinion and can be easily refuted with proper sources and experience.
On most of my luggage, I resorted to using short wires, sticking them through the lock holes and twisting their ends, to prevent accidental opening. If a wire gets lost, because a TSA employee opened the luggage but did not put the wire back on, I have several replacement wires in my luggage.
See, that right there does a pretty good job proving laziness on their part. I don't know what kind of wire you used but if they can't even put your wire back on, how can anyone even expect them to put a pad lock back on even if they did bother to use their master key to remove it in the first place??
Again pal, never claimed I did. That's all on you for assuming I was.As I said, if you don't know the laws, just don't assume you do.
A firearm gets inspected upon check in. No-one is allowed to open the box, other than you.
Ok so, how are they supposed to inspect the firearm if they're not allowed to open the box?
Didn't really think I needed to. I said it wasn't the same ballpark but maybe the same concept.You did not clearly state that a TSA-compliant lock for luggage is something completely different than a TSA-compliant box for firearms, which is why I had to make this statement to make sure the OP gets it.
Fact of the matter is, if you're information is correct, good for you. There's plenty of ways to do make that point without belittling anyone and coming off like a know it all.
You're exactly right, I haven't. What difference does it make? You make it sound like I was telling this person what to do and to disregard what everyone else says. lol.You clearly were also not aware of the TSA firearm handling rules, which leads me to believe that you never traveled with a checked in firearm.
Again, wasn't posting an opinion. What one would say is their opinion is different from harmlessly saying the FFA would or would not allow. I wasn't stating to know all that. If someone comes into the discussion and sets the OP straight then great, that's the purpose of these forums.Your posts should be based facts from your experience and not based on your opinion of what you think the facts are.
Unfortunately, many gun forums are filled with people that have little experience but post tons of opinions.
You're right but just because that's what the majority of these people do, don't assume everyone does.
