Possible new job
Well I have a pretty high probability of getting a new job. A friend of our family is the regional sales manager for the company and she says there is a spot open that would be a basic shoo in if I applied. It would double my current income It's a federally contracted job at Letterkenny Army Depot. The issue is I will need a security clearence which includes a backround check (which im sure my LTCF will show up on) and all that other jazz because I will be working in a secure area that deals with military equipment. I kind of figured CC will be a no go on base... now what about if I secure it in my vehicle, locked before hand? Seperated the ammo etc... how would I be able to carry, or at least bring my firearm to and from work and secure it in my vehicle? I know I can't carry on base, but what about locking the gun in the car unloaded?

Congrats on the hopefully new job.
Sure can lock the gun up unloaded in a secure case bolted in the truck or under the front seat shackled to the front seat frame.
I use a simple metal single gun case with a lock on it and metal wire strap that goes around/through the seat frame and locks into the case. Works well and is a good solution to the problem.

Probably going to be a big no-go, even kept in the car. It's up to the installation commander, IIRC, but every base I have been on it has been an absolute no-go, except if transporting to the range, etc. with authorization.

Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

I'm not sure about the base there or the Army for that fact, but on the Air Force base they don't 'allow' any firearms on the base at all unless you are escorted straight to the armory and then when you leave they escort you straight off of the base. It sucks, I know, but I would not want to take the chance, even locked up. One of the Army bases I used to live on would search vehicles all the time and I wouldn't want to have to explain, 'what's in the lock box'. But that's just my opinion. Take it for what it's worth.

Your LTCF isn't an issue for the clearance. You will have to check with the base to see what rules they have for firearms. You're right I doubt CC is allowed and unlikely transport on and off each day is allowed either, but you might get lucky on that one. They can only say no if you ask, but they might work with you or say yes.

Go unarmed until you can check the regs. You may or may not be able to do as you propose. Even if you can, there will be some simple to do gun registration program. Do not take anyone's word for it, read the base order yourself. Concealed of any kind will not be allowed; but, a gun safe or case in the trunk may.
For example it is here.

Yup, it's a non-issue for your clearance (I have a current TS-level and a VA CCP). But even bringing firearms on most if not all Federal bases is probably going to be a no-go; I'd covertly inquire about it before I'd "officially" ask anyone. (That said, they do allow hunting on some bases...hmm. Dunno. But I'd covertly find out before asking still.)

I know Letterkenny allows hunting, but I don't know what the procedures are. Maybe ask about that (hunting procedures) and you'll find the answer on firearms in general without giving somebody the opportunity to say "NO!" just because...

Check with the law enforcement folks at the Depot before even trying to bring a weapon on the installation!

Ahh yes! Military personnel are not allowed to have weapons. What genius thought that up?

Chances are slim-to-none that you'll be able to bring your weapon on post, unloaded and locked up or not. One of many reasons I'm not still in the Army.

A non issue for your license. Carrying in your vehicle could be a very big no.
