  • Border Patrol off-duty weapon?

    Does Border patrol agents normally carry off-duty weapons or that's not as normal as with police officers?

    It's every bit as much a personal choice with Border Patrol Agents as it is with other LEOs. The rules and regs that cover it as far as the BP is concerned will be introduced to you at the Academy, and hammered home in your Field Training Unit.

      You can pack whatever weapon you want off duty, but you get more backing from the service in the event of a shooting if you were packin' your duty weapon (.40 S&W H&K P2000).

      If you landed a great job being paid to drive a nice car around town, why would you drive your POV (personally owned vehicle) off duty if you could take the company car that has free gas and insurance on it?

          And that says it all. Especially the part about insurance.

            You are only partially correct sir. You need to be more careful in what you put out to prospective and new Agents. If you want me to elaborate, then you need to PM me. If you're carrying a non duty weapon on your creds, then you're asking to be fired.

              This is correct! You cannot carry anything other than your issued firearm. If you do you do so as a citizen and not an Agent. If it turns out that you do and its a "good shoot" then the BP will give you a pat on the back. The opposite applies.
