    If you wanted to carry a different firearm, than your duty weapon..That would be the only reason I could think of..

    Woops, I have to edit here....This is from someone in New York....You can buy and carry whatever you want in some other states, I am sure. (As a private citizen)

      As I understand it, HR-218 requires that the agency qualifies you with the weapon you're carrying.
      I don't see CBP making it a practice to qualify people on anything other than duty weapons.

                  It's www.vfsolutions.com

                  It's not going to do you much good unless you've got an account already set up though.

                  Edit: if you do happen to have an account and you happen to know your password to log in...IMO you're crazy to order ANYTHING until after you complete FLETC and make it back to your port. Too many NUGS order stuff only to find out later that port policy bars the wearing of it. That goes for Sally's stuff too.

                    I think that you are right on this.
                    I remember reading an instruction to type unknown for the city that you were born in.

                    Make sure to take you time reading "ALL" the instructions that are sent to you. That's one of the reasons that all of this is so time consuming.

                      yeah, aint that the truth! that package takes so darn long as it is, you might as well take your time and do it correctly.

                        I think that I got my Tenetive Selection letter the 1st week of December and then the paperwork arrived about a week later. It took me 8 months just to get the tenetive selection letter!
                        Since then, I spent 4 hours filling out the SF-86 and then another 2 hours filling out the rest of the docs/making copies of all of them.
                        Can you believe that my local PD charge me $45 to do my finger prints!!!
                        I wonder if that's reimbursable?...
                        I found out that I passed the VBT and Drug test just last Wednesday.
                        CASS says that all that's remaining is my qualifications check and my background check.
                        I wonder how much longer it's going to be.
                        I think that I read somewhere on this forum that if I get a Final Offer that it may be for more then 1 post.
                        Does anyone know what the likleyhood of that is?
                        Does anyone know what happens if I don't like any of the locations that they offer me?
                        by the way, thanks for letting me vent!
                        I just can't believe how long this has taken.

                          Yeah it takes a while doesnt it? Im like you, waiting for my background and qualifications. cant see why qualifications takes so long. you tell em straight what high school, etc. you went to. by the way, i dont suggest turning down any location if you dont like it. if you're like me you better just bite the bullett and take whatever they offer, or you made all the hassle just a waste of your time.
                          Good Luck.

                            1. Maybe to probably, depending on what your selections were. If you picked northern MN, ND or anywhere...probably.

                            2. You walk. Maybe...just maybe they'll let you hang in limbo waiting for a chance that a port more to your choosing opens up...but don't count on it.

                              If you're willing to spend 4-5-6 years out in the middle of nowhere...or you only using CBP as a stepping stone into another agency...that might work. Most likely you'll end up quiting otherwise.
