Effective March 1, firearms registration will be available at the Visitors Center, located at the Chaffee (Main) Gate, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., 7 days a week. With this change, firearms registration will become a DROP-OFF ONLY system. Drop off will still be available at DES Headquarters (Bldg. 298) at any time, but all resulting registrations will be picked up at the Visitors Control Center. Registrations will be ready for pick up in 7 calendar days. All registrations must be picked up by the requester or by an immediate family member.

Visitors must have original copies of their firearms registration when bringing the firearm on the installation. All firearms must be declared to the guard upon entering the installation, and there must be a valid reason/purpose for bringing a firearm on post - hunting or going to French Range for example.
