      Have you spent a lot of time in Miami? The traffic is the worst during those hours. You will have to leave yourself plenty of time in order to get to the airport on time. Any accident will shut down all access to the the airport. Good Luck with that.

        do you look online to see who wants to swap??? thanks for the info........

        When doing a swap, it's between you and the other officer at the port you want to go to. You fill out an OF612, get your latest evaluation, and type a memo to the port director of the port/airport/seaport you want to swap to. They in turn do the same. It's not difficult, the hard part is waiting for one to pop up and that both port directors agree to it. The info for swaps are available on the intranet (cbp internal network only). Another way you can transfer is if there is an opening at another port but that you apply through your chain of command.

              It's not bad, long trigger pull. It's a good size weapon, not too big not too small. I prefer Glock, but this will do. At FLETC, you will get issued smufs, a cheap version of the official uniform. You get that same day (could be second day, don't remember lol). Then you get measured for your official uniform which takes bout 4-5 weeks to arrive. Once your entire class has a complete uniform you wear that till graduation. Unless your doing pt (arrest, baton, OC) your instructors will tell you what to wear. Good luck!

                        • I was wondering if they issue you a cleaning kit also for the PK 2000 or do you just use what's supplied to you during training? I guessing they give direction on breaking it down. That would be silly if they didn't.

                              From what I have read qualifications are done in batches and it can be before or after the BI, it's just the luck of the draw. In my case my G5 qualification was completed before my inital interview. But I have seen others who's background are completed and are still waiting on their qualifications. I'm guessing it also depends on how complicated it is to verify your experience and/or education, but the second response is just an educated guess.

                              • mlrtme,

                                My VBT was on the same day as yours. Have you checked CASS? It does seem to update every Tuesday and Thursday as someone mentioned awhile back.
