So I had to fly back to So.Cal. This weekend. Flew Delta out of Spokane. I was there several hours early and checked my bag and declared my firearm at the check in counter.
I’m always a bit uneasy about it when they throw my bag on the belt.
Had an all to brief layover in Salt Lake.
When I get to my destination and get my bag home I notice it’s been opened.
I open the bag and find that my GunVault safe has had the rubber keypad ripped off exposing the electronic portion and a small access hole. (I’ve seen vids of how to open these safes)
Anyway I enter my code and I hear the mechanism activate but the door doesn’t open. After several attempts (and slapping it around) it opened.
Everything was there. This time.
It pisses me off that baggage with firearms get special tags and is treated differently. It’s like a “Steal me” tag to the baggage handlers.
Wrote a nasty gram to Delta and TSA but doubt much will happen. Actually got a kick back email from Delta that that address is no longer monitored.
Anybody ever had a gun stolen at an airport?
