That's the way it is with federal LEO's, and it's not crazy once pondered. LEO's train and qualify with their duty weapons, as well as with other special weapons they may be required to use. This means that they all have a very high level of proficiency with these weapons, Agencies do not have the time and resources to train and qualify everyone with every weapon they may possess.Originally posted by HemiByrd:
Here's a true story. When I was waiting to pick up my CC card in Memphis a guy I was talking to was there to get his too. Turned out he was a policeman in one of the local small communities. I asked if he was allowed to carry his service pistol when off duty without a permit. He said he was, but the reason he needed the CC permit was so his fanny was covered if he had to go to his backup pistol while on duty. His department only issued the one pistol and the backup was his. The department wouldn't back him up if he had to use his backup pistol. That has to be about the craziest thing I ever heard!!!
