Police Records (725-0819)
Q. What do I need to do to register a weapon aboard Camp Pendleton?
A. MCIWEST-MCB CAMPENO 5000.2 establishes the requirement to register privately owned weapons. Weapons must be registered within 72 hours of introduction to Camp Pendleton and deregistered within 72 hours of sale or permanent removal from Camp Pendleton.
If you have a Dealer’s Receipt of Sale, you are not required to present the weapon for inspection. Otherwise, bring the weapon to the Police Records section in Bldg 1523 and be sure to clear the weapon in the clearing barrel before bringing it inside the building. Most registrations are entered as you wait, however, if our computer systems are down, you may be asked to complete a Weapons Registration Form.
The following weapons may be registered aboard the base ONLY if they are currently registered with the California Department of Justice.
.50 Caliber BMG
California Department of Justice registration is required BEFORE bringing the weapon to California.
Refer to California Penal Code Section 12280 regarding importation of Assault Weapons or .50 Caliber BMG Weapons.
To apply for an Assault Weapon Permit, an applicant must submit to the Department of Justice
(1) a complete Application for Assault Weapon Permit for Military Personnel
(2) a $73 fee
(3) two complete ten-print fingerprint cards
(4) a copy of the pertinent PCS orders, and
(5) a letter from the Installation Commander attesting to the military necessity for the applicant to have the assault weapon at the California duty station.
