I want to give my hand gun to my niece who lives in Texas. Her son is here in Florida visiting his grandmother and me but will soon be returning to Texas. I have no experience in transporting guns on airliners but I believe they can be sent in checked bags provided they are not loaded and the airline is notified in advance. Is this true?
Can bullets be transported at the same time under the same conditions?
I am concerned that the gun just might be stolen by our TSA inspectors; if this is a valid concern, what would be a better way to send it?
Thanks for any and all inputs.
