To continue the fun at your expense theme, where can one find a 50mm machine gun? :evil2:

Kind of ironic, IMHO.
Depends on the base and the rules they set for the personnel. Most will still make you check it in with the base police or at the armory and check it out when you want to go shoot. But, I have heard there are some bases that allow you to have a long gun at home, but not sure about pistols.
When I lived in base housing in '96 and '97, in Yuma AZ, I had a shotgun, .22lr rifle, and 9mm handgun. All were registered on base and kept under my control in my housing unit. I also had a pair of AK's registered to me, but they weren't mine, they belonged to a buddy who lived in the barracks (he didn't want them under the control of the amory, which was notorious for messing with people's guns) :evil2: .

Call the base. They might honor the permit, or at least let you check your weapon at the front gate so you don't have to leave it off base or in your hotel.

I don't get it. If it was permissible the crazy Dr. at Ft. Hood might not have gotten off so many shots.
All gun laws fail the logic test.
PS, where are the "50 mm cannons"? I'd sure love to shoot one of those.... "rlol"

When I lived in housing on base, we were allowed to have guns, but they had to be unloaded at all times. They also had to be registered with the Provost Marshall's office before we could bring them on base. We were not allowed weapons of any kind in the barracks. That was onboard MCAS Yuma, AZ, in the early ninties.
