Rules vary by installation. At NWS Charleston I regularly brought my 1911. I declared it at the main gate, cleared it, and then placed it with the slide locked back into a weapons locker. I filled out a registration form, tore the receipt off the form, and then locked the form in the locker with the pistol.
When leaving the base, I presented my receipt to security, and they allowed me to retrieve my pistol, which I promptly loaded and holstered.
