Watching Fox , can our agents carry a AR or some other type of rifle.?
Every time I see tapes they all have just handguns.

I don't know the details, but I know that they do sometimes carry more than just pistols. Border Patrol (CBP?) shoots at the gun club I belong to, and I see them practice with shotguns and M4-geries.

Some of the BPAs have REAL M4s and shotties.

I guess they must have some in their armory, but as crazy and dangerous this job
has become it should be issue and carry. I don't think they would mind
if they carried a M4. but I could be wrong

Just never saw a clip with them carrying one.

Several years ago I met Sand_Pirate at a range.

He had some cool toys.

Yes, BP's have access to long arms. Real M4's with the happy switch and police 870's are the standard. However their are variations, some positive, some negative. Most have an automatic rifle or SMG in some form or another accessable to all who want to carry one. A huge obstacle they face is trying to avoid the image of appearing like a military force. So, you will rarely see one carrying such a weapon in the media.

I don't think the M4 is a pool weapon. At least with the Agent I talked to. She kept calling it "my M4".

Maybe the shotguns, but I'm pretty sure the M4s aren't for obvious reasons.
