    So TSA locks talked about by a guy who does security penetration testing. He says he uses an Assa Abloy when he travels with a firearm BTW because TSA locks suck. BTW some foul language here so if you are easily offended don't click play.

    TSA locks are not to be used to lock up firearms. So why even make a video with nothing useful to say?

    Sadly some people do it. I know someone on here posted about using a TSA lock at one point. And I have seen other people lock up stuff with them as well thinking they were decent locks.

    Do you know if the Abloy locks are difficult to pick? I have a dozen or so.

    One should not use TSA approved locks to secure firearms cases in checked baggage. You won't be cited for using them, but it's just not a good idea.

    You may not get cited, but there's a guy we know who instructs the agents to kick you in the junk.

    Most are, some have a flaw in them that makes defeating them easy if you are going to be destructive.

    I would suggest looking through here to see which are which. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9K6rby98W8JigLoZOh6FQ/videos

    § 1540.113
    (c) In checked baggage. A passenger may not transport or offer for trans- port in checked baggage or in baggage carried in an inaccessible cargo hold under § 1562.23 of this chapter:
    (1) Any loaded firearm(s).
    (2) Any unloaded firearm(s) unless— (i) The passenger declares to the air-
    craft operator, either orally or in writ- ing, before checking the baggage, that the passenger has a firearm in his or her bag and that it is unloaded;
    (ii) The firearm is unloaded;
    (iii) The firearm is carried in a hard- sided container; and
    (iv) The container in which it is car- ried is locked, and only the passenger retains the key or combination.
    (3) Any unauthorized explosive or in- cendiary.
    (d) Ammunition. This section does not prohibit the carriage of ammunition in checked baggage or in the same con- tainer as a firearm. Title 49 CFR part 175 provides additional requirements governing carriage of ammunition on aircraft.
