    So you say FAB is as easy or easier than the USSS SAEE?

    USSS CBT was easy. The hardest thing about the FAB is that the video is in like 240p so you can't see anything lmao

    For those of you who have already entered on duty. What are some of the most sought after duty locations for FAMs?

    Correct as far as retirees but the qualification can be done by any number of individuals/agencies (not just the credential issuing agency). For federal Retired LEOs their former agency or any federal agency cannot qualify retirees under LEOSA.

    In accordance with 18 U.S. Code § 926C “Carrying of concealed firearms by qualified retired law enforcement officers”, section (d)(2)(B), the applicant must obtain “a certification issued by the State in which the individual resides or by a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active duty officers within that State that indicates that the individual has, not less than 1 year before the date the individual is carrying the concealed firearm, been tested or otherwise found by the State or a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active duty officers within that State to have met.”

    LEOSA is a benefit for federal law enforcement when they retire, like local/state LEO...it provides a retirement license to carry, as long as the department provides retires credentials and firearm qualifications.

    Okay, I think I got it now. It is definitely some very interesting stuff, thank you, and I really appreciate your time and all of the information!

    Basically correct.. to my understanding the law was more intended for local LEOs so that they wouldn’t have to worry about getting prosecuted in a different state/jurisdiction and for retirees.

    You have to carry your credentials as a Fed LEO regardless of what authority you are carrying under and to be quite honest nobody would knowwhat you are carrying unless you have to deploy the FA. Then someone down stream could possibly figure out you were in violation. Example would be that I could fly with my Ruger LCP and the odds are extremely low that I would ever face any action but in theory could.

    I thought that the only reason federal agents were allowed to carry off duty was because of LEOSA, I did not know that it was really because of their credentials... I think that is where my confusion came from.

    So would LEOSA be more for local/state police as they can't use their credentials to carry anywhere in the US, while federal agents have no need for LEOSA off duty as they can just use their credentials, even off duty (assuming they use their service weapon or authorized POW)? But if the federal agent wanted to use a non-authorized personal weapon, they would now be operating under LEOSA instead of their credentials? Am I understanding that correctly now?

    For the previous announcement I received an email to schedule the FAB about a week or two after the first person reported getting their email. Some people even completed the test before my email came through.

    I passed the FAB and Field Office Assessment for the previous announcement so I won't have to schedule either of those for this announcement, but haven't heard anything nor has my portal been updated past the application received stage from this application. Hurry up and wait...the unofficial motto of the government!
