    Wanted to buy a pistol before I shipped out in Feb.
    I was just wondering if there are certain kinds we can use on deployment.
    Still deciding on what to buy...

    I'd wait till you get to your unit before you decide to buy one just for deployment.

    No regular unit I've been in would even dream of allowing a Soldier to use a POF on the battlefield.

    Yeah that seems a bit shady. I imagine it would violate some law.
    Now tanks on the other hand are a different story, if you wanted to bring your own M1 Abrams the Army would ship it over there for you. Just consult with your chain of command as there is a weight limit to shipments that is based on rank. I would also think twice about bringing your own Abrams, it might get scratched and God knows that's a bitch to buff out. You may have to get a dealership to touch it up with paint. Scottwax might have some tips on how to remove minor scratches.

    You are not allowed to carry a privately owned firearm. Its illegal.

    Just because people get away with something doesn't mean it isn't still illegal ;)

    two main reasons you can't use your own firearm...

    1. you can only use ammunition issued to you by the military (geneva conventions stuff)
    2. military armorers can only work on duty firearms

    by that if it shot issued ammo and never broke he'd be all set. I dunno how the guys in charge of ammo would take a request of ammo for a personal firearm. that would be if you could actually bring your own over. I don't think you can though.

    What I was trying to get at was, it's repetitious to say 'day' twice in one sentence.

    :dunno:
