Hello all!! I currently live in SC but my wife is trying to get a job in Quantico VA. I wanted to ask you all if any one has lived there or lives there now and how they are about guns and CC. Thanks for your time.
I lived near there as a teen and later was stationed at MCB Quantico -- many years ago.
1) As with all MCB, carry on base is near impossible.
2) The town of Quantico is the only civilian town in the country (to the best of my knowledge) that is 100% surrounded by a military base.

Sometime back they moved the gate which complicates getting into the Q-town from elsewhere off base. It is my "understanding" that you secure your gun unloaded and tell the guard(s) at the gate that you are going to Q-town, then once off-base in Q-town, itself, Va law applies.
3) Other than getting in & out of Q-town, itself, there is lots of off-base housing and Va is about average for gun laws. Check out: Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL)
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
