Upon landing in Atlanta, me and my fellow hunters had to go through a four-step process to make our connections home, which was three steps more than necessary. First, we waited in a line to go through a room with two agents who checked and logged the serial numbers on our firearms. Then we trekked across the facility to another line, where more customs agents inspected our bags, including our firearms again. Then we went to another line, where we dropped off our bags so they could be placed on our connecting flight - all except for our firearms that is. We took them to yet another line, where another agent checked them again, this time swabbing for explosives.
