    Hi Frank. Using a chamber flag really isn’t necessary to meet the travel requirements but they aren’t a bad thing if you are able to use one in the case. The rule is the firearm must be unloaded and using a flag will definitely help in providing a quick visual reference that you did unload the gun.
