    You can't carry on any federal land that is not a national park, this includes military installations, post offices, federal offices, Corp of Engineer lands, etc.

    Every base I have been to is posted “No Concealed Weapons” at every gate. My duty position required myself and others on my crew to carry concealed, we were issued weapons at Command Post before going to the airplane and after landing weapons were turned into Command Post before going into crew rest.

    I lived outside of Ft. Hood. You have to registrar the weapon on base, CC is not permitted. The weapon has to be secured until at the Sportsman's range or in the designed hunting areas on post. To registar your weapon, you have to to the Military Police Station with information on your weapon.

    It is not allowed, and I think that particular post would be a bit jumpy if you tried it and was found out.

    I'm well aware of what happened at Fort Hood and thought that maybe the rules might allow CC since we're law abiding citizens. Maybe if people had been allowed to CC the attack wouldn't have taken place or would have been ended quickly. And from the answers so far, it doesn't seem so clear cut and each base may have it's own policy. I plan to call the base and ask them what the policy is.

    In any case, I asked a simple question and appreciate the people who answered without sarcasm and rolling eyes.

    Wrong each base does not have it's own policy they all fall under Federal Property so no carry.

    All of the above is correct, you cannot carry on a military installation unless you have a specific need by orders to do so.

    I am curious though: does this mean no soldier living on base can own a gun? I think there are some means by which they can register the gun, and park it at the armory to be picked up if they want to go shooting or something. There must be some means, Hurlburt Field has a range and a gun club.

    Correct weapons will be registered on post and you can keep them in the arms room or off post at the Rod and Gun club here in El Paso.

    Hurlburt's Rifle and Pistol Club meets at a range that's right on base. Looks like a nice range.

    Yes, soldier and family members living on post can possess firearms. Commanders memo, registar the weapon and remains in the unit arms room. They normally require the Cdr memo to release the weapon from the Unit Arms room. The Memo normaly states the time period the firearm will be signed out and sign back into the Arms room and of course the purpose. Now, I'm not 100% on if the Cdr was the authority to allow soldier and family member living On-Base housing to keep thier weapons at their residances of not. There are no provisions for Conceal Carry for normal Joe.
