TRANSPORTATION OF PRIVATELY OWNED FIREARMS
7.1. General Considerations.
7.1.1. Transporting of all firearms on the installation is prohibited except to and from authorized storage or shooting areas to include hunting areas. Firearms must be cleared, safe and placed in a locked container. The term "locked container" means a secure container which is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, key lock, combination lock, or similar locking device. This includes the trunk of a motor vehicle, but does not include the utility or glove compartment or center console. *** 3rd year rule has been in place, after 2018 Deer season, no more grace period. Rule will be enforced starting 1 October 2018.
7.1.2. Transporting firearms on bicycles, motorcycles, or any two or three-wheeled vehicle is prohibited. Firearms will not be stowed in such a manner as to appear to be a concealed weapon. Examples of concealment: hiding a firearm or dangerous weapon on one's person; transporting a firearm or dangerous weapon in a privately owned vehicle hidden from view, unless secured in a locked, enclosed container to include the trunk, not the center console or utility or glove compartment.
7.1.3. Ammunition may be transported in the same area as the firearm but no ammunition may be inside any part of the firearm (ex: inserted magazine, round not chambered); transporting a loaded, secured firearm is prohibited.
