    I am interested in hearing what the differences are.

    IMO, as long as I am permitted to carry a firearm off-duty, I think I will be good to go.

      This may seem like a minor, nit picky issue to some, but it is important to me.
      So Federal LEO's have less off-duty privileges than Local and State LEO's?

      I thought they were the ones dealing with illegal immigrants, drug smugglers, drug cartel, terrorists, etc.

      Maybe I just don't understand the logic after all...

      • Are there any restrictions on how far you can live from your duty post?

          As long as you are there on time everyday, no. But realize that, at times, you will be working 12-18+ hour days.

            They are, just like many local and state officers.

            Obviously it's not the law I am speaking of, but department policy. What I have been told is that you can only carry your duty weapon off duty. I read on this forum that you can carry any gun off duty, but then someone else said that was not true. Hopefully I am WRONG.

              I wouldn't mind carrying an H&K P2000 at all.

              Seems like the government has a very good budget .

                A much better, at least bigger, budget than I do.

                • Is there a take home vehicle program for BPA's? something similar to what local and state LEO have. Just wondering I won't mind driving that suburban around.

                    Me personally I won't want a take home car in a border town. I feel it would just make me and my family at home at target.

                          I read that take home cars are only for a few Sr. BPAs.
