tip for air travelers

Postby 3legged_lab » Sun Sep 30, 2012 11:15 am

Something I learned the hard way on my hunting trip to Alberta this year: don't put your choke tubes in your carry on bag. I took them with me to Canada in my locked case with my shotgun, but messed up and left them in my carry on bag on the way home. Turns out that Customs views a choke tube as a "necesary functioning part" of the firearm. Don't bother arguing that a shotgun can infact be fired without it, they don't care.

Just my little lesson, put your tubes in with your checked luggage or you won't get on the plane with them.
