ak.bobParticipantYou can check a gun in on American airlines and up to 5 kilo’s (11lb’s) of ammunition. It has to be in a locked gun case and unloaded. Any ammunition must be in a storage case designed to carry ammunition. A magazine is considered a proper case. You do not need to have TSA locks. Depending on the airport you may have to take your case to TSA for them to inspect the firearm.

With that said. I always travel with a firearm. I don’t fly American Airlines because if you have a connecting flight with another airline, they will NOT inter-airline transfer you bag or gun case. You will have to go to the baggage claim get your case and then go back thru TSA and re-check your bag with the other airline00
