I didn't know if they issue you a hand gun or you have to buy one initially.

It all depends on where you work my pd will do both you can buy your own or they will issue you one, I bought my own so when I leave I take it with me. Just ask they will let you know.

in my dept. i had to buy my guns when i was a recruit. when i retired, i had to apply for a carry permit since i resided in the same jurisdiction that i worked for. if i move out of nyc, i can transfer the guns to whatever state,city,county.

Under the federal law HR-218 once you retire you can carry anywhere in the U.S. as long as you qualify with your firearm once a year in the state that you live in.

Different from dept. to dept. Here in texas most dept's will carry your commission as retired as long if it's after your vested. Carry till death or senility takes you.

You will meet them doing various other things with resolve, but their interest rarely holds because after the other thing ordinary life is as flat as the taste of wine after the taste buds have been burned off your tongue."
