The moment you land in DC with a firearm you are in violation of law anyway. DC has the most stringent firearms laws, even possession of bullets or dud ammo is illegal and people have been convicted of being in possession of it.

Replica bullets, dud shell earn weapons conviction for former Washington man | Fox News
I always thought this was the case, yet people still fly through Dulles. Is this not an issue because Dulles is in Virginia and not DC?

Guessing this is short-lived but will have to watch since Dulles is the suggested route for me from the travel agent for July to namibia

The way I read it, only applies to Reagan and air carriers. I wonder if they'll cover the wheels coming in on charters.

Yes, have flown thru there as well with no issues.

There is going to be a big push for more gun control especially if we have any more incidents of the new favorite buzzword of the lamestream media, "insurrection".

Reagan is in VA too. Maybe it's more the distance (6 miles from DC for Reagan vs 26 for Dulles) and to do with the counties or something?

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).
