      A Vet gets priority, LE is nice on the resume during the interview, but no extra points.....

      Apply for it, the worst that happens is they say no... Just because you aren't a Vet or LE, is not an automatic DQ..

              Welcome to the FAMS. No more low cost areas will ever be available. Take it or leave it. How it is, if you really want in.

              • No, you can never carry your firearm in OCONUS. That's not changing and hasn't changed. You are a federal law enforcement officer, which does not carry over outside the USA

                  This is incorrect, please try to not post information you do not know to be accurate. DSS is Federal law enforcement. They are allowed their firearm overseas, as is Secret Service in limited circumstances. FAMS is no exception.

                  You are correct, MOST countries you cannot carry. However, certain countries are so dangerous that the FAMS have agreements to allow carrying. I will not get in to details besides that. Like Bearcat said, it may be going away, but I was a FAM and haven't been out more than a year yet. It was still that way when I left. I know a few co-workers who went to certain places overseas and were allowed to keep their firearms.

                    As I said before, those will always be the locations open for FAMS. MAYBE DC or LA. Thats about it. Get used to it. I hope this response was more sarcastic then actual disbelief. If you choose to apply, don't plan on ever transferring, will not happen. Again just stating facts. Good luck.

                      The question was in regards to off-duty carry

                        I stand by what I said. Perhaps we were based in dfferent offices and flew to different places. I PM'd you. Unless procedures have changed since April, the country I mentioned in the PM DID let you carry once you landed. I agree though, MAJORITY of countries you fly to, you will not be able to carry.

Just wondering how the whole reporting into the office works... Could I be hired for one of those places and still live in Syracuse? Or do I have to end up moving? Kind of a dumb question but I'm curious.

                            I'm also in 'cuse. From what I hear you must live within a certain distance from the field office. You do work out of the field office when you aren't flying. So yes, plan on moving to the city.
