Yeah, don't use TSA approved locks. Use a Master or something similar high quality.
And +1 on using a Pelican/Storm/Hardigg hard case.

Recommendations for a casual shooter

Thanks guys. Don't really have time to get a pelican case or equivalent. My plan is to master lock the factory Glock case. From what I've read on tsa and the airline's website, I should be fine.

Oh, and from what I've read you are specifically not supposed to use a TSA lock. Only the passenger transporting the firearm should have the ability to open the lock.

Make sure you put your full name and your cell phone number on the case as well. It's not uncommon for someone to open the luggage to reinspect and then want you to open the case again. I know several guys who have had to do that with checked rifles.

For the range I have an SKB case which I've been really pleased with, i'd have to look up the model since I bought it years ago.

Made it through the Atlanta and Philadelphia airports with no issues or drama. Thankfully there were no lines at the counters which probably helped. I traveled with a cable lock through the mag well, the gun in it's factory case and a Master combination padlock over the handle. The case was packed loosely in my checked luggage, which had a TSA lock on the zipper. I did not travel with ammo.

The counter agents in Atlanta were very experienced with the process and handled everything efficiently. TSA screening was quick and friendly. I was able to observe the TSA screening. In total, the entire process might have added 5 minutes to the total check-in time.

The agent in Philly was also familiar and handled things quickly. My bag disappeared behind the wall on the conveyor belt and maybe a couple minutes later, my bag was cleared. The TSA screening process in Philly was slightly different in that I was not able to see them perform the screening. I get the feeling it was slightly less thorough.
