    I am happy to have found this forum!. I thought those of you interested in FBI related handguns would like to see what the Bureau decided to do this past year to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the FBI 1908-2008. These pistols were available only to Special Agents, active/retired, by the FBI SAA and they were not for public consumption or even exchangeable between agents as each gun has a serial number that is assigned to the purchasing agent. This serial number is then reported to the Bureau. All in all, it's nothing more than a standard .40 Glock 22 in a fancy wooden/glass display case which cost extra. Eliza

    I can understand the pistols not being offered for sale outside of the FBI. Does the SA who purchases one of these pistols agree not to sell it?
     
  9. That is very nice. Its almost a shame it couldn't have been an American gun.

    Kinda make me want a G22 now.

    I'm guessing it's on the CA DOJ roster, so that the Agents in California won't be breaking state law by purchasing it..... :whistling:

    JR - It is perfectly legal for an agent to sell it, but federal agencies are much more scrupulous than state agencies, and state agencies can be pretty scrupulous. In other words, while it is perfectly legal for an agent to sell their commemorative pistol, it is probably highly frowned upon within the agency. "Highly frowned upon" has a lot of bad career connotations in a federal or state agency...

  14. Arent LEO's federal included exempt from the list anyway? So why would they need it on the list?

    I have no idea; that's why I said "I'm guessing..." Weirdly-worded laws abound, but to my brain, since this is not a dept-owned weapon, it is a privately-owned weapon, and as such, common sense would dictate that it would have to be "legal" on this list... Again, operative words are: "guessing" and "common sense" in relation to the wording of a law. Both of those are pretty big leaps of faith/assumptions.

    You'd know much better than I, since you live in CA. As an aside, and saying this as an LEO, I find it illogical and complex to exempt LEOs from certain laws, because gaining or losing employment is not that slow or difficult of a process, depending on the circumstances. So, one minute you're legal, the next minute, you're not. That makes no sense to me... Laws should apply equally to everyone.
