Staying in NYC makes it confusing and possibly illegal
September 10 2017, 1:40 AM
Airguns are illegal in NYC but if the guns remain in locked cases within the baggage system they can transfer onto other flights. However I doubt the airlines will extend the courtesy of holding your guns any longer than necessary and even if they did, you would risking theft from baggage handling employees. Also each airline will have slightly different rules and definitions.
You may have to consult multiple experts and if you do get an official ruling be sure to get it in writing to show everyone else who will harass you.... I bet you are far better off shipping them separately.
My friend will be staying in new Jersey. We are thinking to ship them to Virginia if the laws are friendly there and from there we can collect them and go back to new Jersey via road. Please note that the airgun will be totally disassembled in parts. From there he will catch his flight from JFK airport.
