    FYI received a comment "You need to use non-TSA locks" – this isn’t true per real law 49 CFR 1540.5 vs random blog.

    You can use TSA locks and it’s by the far the easiest as multiple accounts of firearm cases being opened, pried by TSA are common. They had to tell the passenger to get off the plane. Ultimately, passengers were not able to fly, and airlines do not reimburse these types of missed flights. For the ultra paranoid, best to carry multiple sets of locks as necessary if you want to feel safe.

    The TSA web site further states, "You may use any brand or type of lock to secure your firearm case, including TSA-recognized locks."

    No TSA locks on the case. Locks that open with a key that only you have.
