    Carrying on a military installation

    Can someone provide a link for laws and regs for having a weapon on a military base. I have heard conflicting reports from absolutely no way to leave it at the armory to separate ammo from the firearm and lock the firearm. Is there a definitive answer or is it base to base or branch to branch?

    Do a search on "military base" and you should find threads like this one:

    Base to base. Each installation sets it's own rules. My experience has shown either an absolute prohibition, or permisable transportation of weapons registered on that specific installation. Note I said transportation, I've not heard of any that allow carry.

    When I arrived to my first assignment at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska I was looking through my dorm room and saw an opening to the next room with guns hiding in it. I told my neighbor to remove them because I did not want to be held liable for something that was not mine. All firearms had to be checked into the armory.

    I shoot at FT. Bragg all the time. They have public shooting matches each month. I carry on post every time. I suggest you ask the base commander where you want to enter and see if it is ok first.

    There are no uniform rules: except that CCW is strictly forbidden, each base sets their own policy. It is best to call ahead for instructions... At the very least have your firearm (separated from ammo) and locked in a box. I've been on bases where I have stowed my firearms at the armory for over night stays and I've been on bases which just wanted everything separate and locked. If you are just a day visitor (PX/BX, commissary, etc) some bases only require it stowed and locked... YMMV...
