Unfortunately, you are going to be constrained by Ca laws (which are seriously hosed). If you don't have long left on your tour in 29 Palms, you might just be better off to leave it with you family in Ks until you rotate out.

Look in chapter 4002 (personally owned weapons). It says that any weapon prohibited by the state of california is prohibited aboard the combat center. And that the provost marhsal's office will keep a list of prohibited weapons.

You need to call the provost marshal's office and ask them what you need to do. They will be able to tell you if you can bring the weapon with you and be allowed to register it on post.
