The major airlines allow handguns to be transported in your personal luggage provided it can be properly locked. It has been our experience that there is variation among each airline as to how they require the handgun to be secured in your luggage. Some if not most require a separate locked case inside your locked luggage.

Make sure you contact the airline before you travel as to what is their requirement to transport handguns. You must declare your firearms per Federal Regulations when you check in at the ticket counter.

Colt M4 (LE6920) long guns will be provided by the school during the range exercises. If your agency issues the Colt M4 you may bring and use this weapon system to the school. You are required to ensure that you have enough ammunition for the exercises (see below). 5.56/.223 ammunition can be purchased from the school during the registration process.
