Can I Carry/Own a Gun On Base?

  1. 0
    Hey dudes and dudettes, I will be stationed at Nellis as of November of this year. I own a 1911 pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle. Am I allowed to own these on base? If so, am I ever allowed to carry my pistol with me? Just wondering!

    Thanks!

    As far as the Army goes, no they must be locked up in a Amory on base or kept off base. The only time you can carry them is when you are going to the range, hunting etc. I believe this is the rule for all services.

    Most AF bases will let you have firearms in base housing. You have to meet certain requirements, and register your firearms with security forces. To know exactly what the regulations are for Nellis you need to call their security forces department there.

    You definitely cannot carry on base no matter what type of license you hold except for maybe Federal LE. A base is considered Federal property and as such no CCW.

    As far as owning, each and every base regardless of branch has different regs and subject to change. Usually it's up to the base commander and those change every few years or so.

    At 29 Palms(Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center), no weapons allowed in the barracks. If you lived in base housing you had to register your weapons with PMO(MPs).
