    Looking at the TSA website they clearly state that it could be a TSA-lock:

    Not gunna lie, having TSA approved locks on a rifle case is just asking for it..... I have a case with them and I wouldn't feel comfortable using it to travel by air. Ill be damned if I have a TSA screener popping it open and playing with my stuff. May as well use a twist tie.

    Having traveled both to US and to Germany many times with my teammates I can tell you that I had never had issues with TSA guys with TSA locks. Usually they open it right at the airport, and they do not want to touch anything inside. They are more concerned that things are properly secured. So for example that you have at least 2 locks on the long case etc. Customs are different story, they will check your NIA6 or the permit issues by whatever country you are going to. However, I have heard lots of horror stories. I have also learned to avoid US air carriers when travelling with firearms. But that is just my personal experience.
    Speaking of customs, I have sometimes discovered weeks later from a note from German customs that they ad opened the case/bag for inspection. The funny thing, nothing was ever disturbed and the lock was in perfect condition. They just know how to get in and look at the things they need to without busting your locks or messing up your stuff.

    I did get pulled off the plane after the plane had pushed off the gate and escorted to a an awaiting police officer in Montreal. However, that was airline forgetting to add WEAP to my ticket. Everything was fine as I had my declaration and a copy was in the rifle case. That is the time I learned the importance of those declarations that you fill out with Air Canada when you check in. Let me tell you, that will never happen again, I now make sure there is WEAP on my ticket when I travel with firearms.

    All in all travelling with firearms is not that bad, as long as you are patient, read the airline rules, print them and follow them. I traveled with a newborn, toddler, Miriam and case full of rifles and still made it. The rifles were the least of the problems, as they do not cry on the airplane.
