I know the rules state that nobody other than the owner is supposed to have the key or combination to a lock. Seems like some are using TSA locks on ammo cases but not gun cases. Why not just use all TSA locks and save them and you the trouble of your locks being cut? This would solve the problems of cut locks and extra locks in the gun case and extra locks in carry-ons.

TSA will inspect your rifle case with you present, so after that there is no need for them to reinspect it. But that is here in the US. Once you arrive in a different country they will do what ever they want to do.

Do the Customs or security in other countries even have the keys to TSA locks? Do TSA locks do any good once you're out of the US?

TSA locks are only for the US inspectors. Anyone else will just cut the lock off.

Just back from South Africa and SAA was fine with ammo in checked luggage on international arrival and departure but it had to be separate for domestic flights. We use pistol cases for our ammo and lock with TSA locks. No hassle at all.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
