New Arrival

Can a shotgun be legally transported on my flight ? I have been given a very old shotgun by my sister, her husband passed away and she wants me to have it , so can I take with me on my next flight and if so what do I need to do to make it legal and hassle free

Yes, you can take it, but only as checked luggage.

 

TSA rules govern the situation:
