Each person who registers firearms will receive a firearm-registration record. Anyone engaged in authorized activities that require possession or transportation of a firearm must have the firearm registration record in their possession, and the record must be presented to law-enforcement personnel upon request.

Once completed, firearm registrations will be valid on Fort McCoy indefinitely unless otherwise changed by regulation. If a registrant no longer has a firearm on the registry, they should contact the police department to have the firearm removed from the registry.

Firearms used, possessed, transported, or stored in violation of this policy also may be permanently confiscated by authorized law-enforcement personnel or proper command authority. Disposition of confiscated weapons will be determined through due process following appropriate UCMJ, disciplinary, or administrative actions.
