Needs to be in your checked baggage, preferably with the frame detached. Bottles need to have the regulator/valve taken off.

What is it that keeps drawing me back to buying a Spyder when I can buy any other gun of my choice?!?

What red said is true. i showed up once with my marker and tank. it was in checked baggage, but my tank still had its valve installed. It was completely empty and the valve was open to allow for expansion and compression as needed. airlines said that still would not "fly". So luckily it was a cheap old tank so i had to throw it away before i could go further.the marker stayed intact minus the barrel removed. as long as there is no air source attached and no "ammo" in the marker you should be fine. My thoughts and prayers with your mother and your family, have a safe flight. Mind me askin, where you flying to?

Just empty your tank, then. You shouldn't have to take off the regulator. Might want to call and check with them and be sure to use the most technical terms possible (i.e. high pressure cylinder for paintball use).

cant afford to fly if i go. the marker and gear aint a big deal. its almost 1000 for a round trip flight compared to 200 for a bus ride. i think the bus is best on the wallet
