I will be flying to Rhode Island, thru Baltimore in May to pick up my son from the Naval academy prep school to drive home with him for the summer before he leaves to attend the USNA in Annapolis. I don't want to drive home unarmed but have been told it could be a problem when we land in Baltimore to switch planes.

Is it a problem if I mail a pistol to myself at the hotel I will be staying at in Newport, RI or getting a PO box in Newport and mailing it to myself there instead?

Thinking of stopping by the CMP and picking up a couple of Garands on the way home also.

UPS all the way.

The Post Office will NOT ship your pistol home for you.

You can fly with an unloaded & properly shipped firearm as long as proper procedure is followed at the airport check-in.

I'd call a couple of airlines & see what they can tell you as far as procedures, etc.

I doubt I have to tell you to insure the gun, do I?????

Congrats on your son, as well! I hope he'll make a good Marine!

Actually he is thinking of going Marine Aviation. He has a better chance of flying than if he goes Naval Aviation.

And thanks.
