I'm not sure why others are saying that you have to use the armory, that has not been my experience.
In tech school (goodfellow) they said this at first but after a bit of haggling changed their tune to just can't have air and balls in your room. I did get a 'talking to' for having everything in my room the day before move out when they did a HAWC inspection but explained why and nothing happened.
First base (kadena) they said everything but air could be stored in the dorm rooms. Here during an inspection I was asked why I had all my stuff in there (mainly asking about gun) and I told them that I was permitted to, so nothing happened. We actually had a field on base, about 8~9 months after I started playing there.
Now here (ft meade) I live in on-base housing and I keep everything in my house.
Basically, just ask your dorm manager and get permission from them. Also get permission from your direct supervisor. Just explain to them that you have to keep it clean, and you can't really do that with it sitting in your car/armory all the time. Then when others ask why, just remain calm and respectful, tell them you have permission from the proper people and you will be just fine.
Attitude is important, as is your prior history.
