Last Updated :

(609) 754-3197/3938

Personnel who live in dormitories/barracks or temporarily are staying in lodging need to store their POWs at the Armory Building 6049 8th St. All residents must register their firearms in the POW program if temporarily or permanently stored on base, to include privatized military housing (see Firearms Registration).

Base housing residents must store their POWs with SFS until they are properly registered. Weapons must be registered at the ARMAG but are not required to store POWs. The 87th SFS will store POWs for dorm/barracks residents for an unspecified amount of time.

The ARMAG Building 6049A (Dix) is open 24/7. A representative will always be available
to register, provide information about or store POWs.

Residents are briefed in newcomer’s briefings about the rules and storage information for personal firearms. The Military and Family Support Center hosts the newcomers’ briefs.

Firearm owners must show up in person with the appropriate paperwork from their commanders.

If transporting firearms, they must be unloaded, and contained in a closed and fastened case, gun box or locked in the trunk of a motor vehicle. Contact the 87th SFS armory for more details at (609) 754-3197 or 3938.
