    Two pairs are better. Your outside sneakers are going to get all sweaty, wet, muddy and otherwise junky from running on the gravel trails along the fence line. If you have a second pair, you'll have something to switch into when that happens.

    • You won't get in trouble for only having a pair of running shoes, but Merlin does have a point. You'll wear out your first pair after a while. There is also sand everywhere, especially around the track.

          Oh man, that trail out to Tactical Village tore my shoes up. Of course I had a runner for a PTD instructor.

                  In hindsight, I would say to bring a pair of running shoes and maybe a pair of cross trainers or something like that. Just because running shoes do not have much for lateral stability and when you’re doing defensive tactics and the like, stability is good.

                  We had two people roll their ankles in PTD and they almost went home.

                    • RUMORS are just that . THE ONLY REASON

                      One thing I'll point out...IEA's journeyman out at GL-09, CBPO's at GS-11(and...if rumors are to believed, soon to be GS-12). If you're looking to move upward later in life, locking in that 11 early on gives you so many more options when applying to move to another position.
                      CUSTOMS GOT a 11 was they could not hire anyone in a heated economy and turn over was so high. Add a strong Union . The rumor of the 12 has been around since we got an 11. Same as that import s are going to 13 . Or that we are meging with Border Patrol and going to really get to do something . What is ahpping now is they are loading up the Agency to cut overtime. And to fullfill the mission. WHICH is SERVICE the traveling Public. Read the mission statement. They do not want people waiting more then 10 minutes or so at a border. Again it is what do you want a Law Enforcement career or a customer service job ?

                              12D/6C coverage was also a rumor...until July of last year. Thanks to the union, at least in part.

                              The union is the one at the forefront of the GS-12 rumor. Supposedly, according to them, it's a done deal. Who knows? They are pushing it as fact though, I don't see why they would unless they knew something.

                              As far as "customer service" goes, Yeah...sort of...so what? Just about every federal LEO job spins in the winds of politics and public opinion. That's simply the nature of the beast.

                                Local LE is the same way, get rude with someone and you get a complaint just the nature of the beast.
