Hey guys, I'm headed up to Sacramento this weekend to hunt at my buddy's duck club. I've never flown with a firearm before and was trying to get others experiences with this. If it's a hassle I'll just use one of the pump guns my buddy has up there but if at all possible I'd like to bring my semi-auto. From what I've read it seems straight forward, show the ticket agent that the gun is unloaded in a hard case, check the gun, and be on my way. Is it really that simple? Anyone had any experience with this? I'll be flying with Southwest Airlines. Thanks.
