It must be unloaded, declared, locked, and put in a checked bag. Make sure that you have your poop in a group, though, paperwork wise. I'd also call the airline ahead of time about it. It may be a lot less hassle to have a gun shop in SD ship it to another gun shop in NV, where you can then pick it up. Most gun shops will do this for a small fee, even if you didn't buy the gun from them.
