So, I'm thinking about flying from Salt Lake City to Denver in about 6 weeks. I'd like to being my concealed carry weapon with me. I've looked at the federal regulations and the policies of my airline of choice (Southwest). (Click for links.) My understanding is I can take my firearm on the plane if I check it, declare it, and have it in a locked, hard container. I'm not thinking at this point that I'll take any ammo with me, but that might change. Is there anything else I should know, or anything I should do? I would appreciate any help you could give me with this matter.
