    I am planning to head down to the USMC Museum in the Dumfries/Triangle/Quantico area this weekend and am wondering if hadnguns are prohibited at the facility in either an OC or CC scenario.

    I've been to the website and it appears they have a range on the property, but are the carrying of firearms regulated on the property?

    It does not appear to be federal property at all, but is partially funded by federal funds.

    Anyone know?

    I have contacted the securitymanager at the museum and he sent me the following:



    Only sworn Law Enforcement Officers or Special Agents are permitted to
    enter
    this facility with a firearm. They are required to show me their
    agency
    credentials before being granted access to the museum. Also, we are
    MCBQ
    property so all laws and regulations governing DOD facilities applies.
    I
    hope this has answered your inquire?

    Have a good day

    I do know many museums run by .gov do use metal detectors and searches. Leave it in the car, along with your knives. You are not trustworthy enough as a member of the peasant class.

    Pushing it at the mall is a bit different than pushing it at the Marine base.

    Not the best idea IMO.

    Secure the firearm in your trunk with the ammo secured elsewhere. No ammo in the magazines.

    I actually have not been to the range in years. The problem with the club is that they only have access to the ranges on certain days and times. And you have to call Thursday nights and check a recording to see when and if the ranges will be open. It depends on whether or not a range master is available to volunteer to work that particular range. The rifle range usully was only open on Saturday or Sunday mornings for only 3 or 4 hours. But that was some time ago. I don't know if anything has changed. All of my shooting buddies all got married, had families and/or moved away so I stopped going. But that also had to do with the incovenience of the range schedules.

    Not to mention the proximity to the FBI Academy and your chances of running into an agent taking a break by visiting the museum. A really dumb thing to advocate.

    The museum is across Rt. 1 from the base gate. You don't pass through the gate to get to it. On an older map, this was shown as a county park land, not part of the base. That could have changed, of course.

    Don't look to me to be the test case, though.

    If they claim to be base property under the control of the Quantico Commanding General, then what he says goes. Beats me what the penalty is, I don't want to find out either. Yes I am chicken because I've taken to many guys to a Marine Corps Brig and seen how unpleasant even a short stay is.

    Pretty sad that a museum for an organization that fights for freedom yours is restricted. As a Marine myself that pisses me off.

    Another sad fact, when being an active duty member and fighting for those freedoms you do not have/cannot exercise the freedoms you are prepared to die for. Oh well, can't complain ,we knew that going into it, more or less.

    Yes Marines get to fight for and protect freedom, not practice it. Kinda fitting in a sad way that the museum continues that policy.

    Count me in.

    Does that make an old time rifle "fire team?"
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Thanks. I'd lost track.

    I thought something might have changed after they invented brass cartridges.

    It was hell training VAopencarry not to bite the bullet off the end of the brass cartridge and pour the powder down the muzzle.
