Weapons Registration

Anyone entering Fort Riley in possession of a firearm must declare the firearm(s) to the guards. All firearms brought onto the installation must be registered at the DES Visitor Control Center (VCC), building 885 Henry Drive, IAW AR 190-11 and FR Reg 190-1. (Note: Firearms will not be transported inside the registration building)

For firearms registered on Fort Riley (SEE FR FORM 102) a person need only present their registration form along with proper identification to enter post.

For firearms not registered on Fort Riley, the driver of the vehicle will be directed to the Visitor Control Center to complete the process.  During non-duty hours, the driver will be issued a 24 Hour Permission for Privately Owned Firearms on Fort Riley with instructions to return to the Visitor Control Center within 24 hours during duty hours. 

Soldiers will require their commander’s authorization, identified by a signed FR Form 102 in order to fully register their firearms. Authorized dependents will require sponsor's command signature as well.
Registration process: 

  • Manually

Complete the FR Form 102, complete with commanders authorization signature (if applicable), and hand carry to the Visitor Control Center, located at Henry Gate. Bring any previous registration form to include 24 hour authorization.

  • Automated

Complete the FR Form 102 with digital signature, complete with commander’s authorization signature (if applicable).

Once completed, the owner is required to take the signed form to the Visitor Control Center to finish the process and receive the completed registration form. 

Weapons Transportation

Privately-owned firearms will be transported in vehicles only while traveling in a direct route to-and-from hunting areas, target ranges, or other locations authorized by the Fort Riley Senior Commander. No stops are authorized.

The carrying of a loaded firearm in a vehicle is prohibited at all times on a Federal installation.

Privately-owned firearms carried in a vehicle will be secured in the trunk. For vehicles without a trunk, firearms will be encased in a container other than the glove compartment and carried in such a manner that they will not be readily available to the driver or passengers. Commercially-available trigger locks and other security devices are strongly recommended to deter and prevent loss and theft.

If requested by installation Access Control Point Security Officer and law enforcement personnel, individuals will present their registration documentation when the firearm is out of an approved storage location and being transported on the installation.
