What Kinds of Guns Do FBI Agents Use?
Agents carry Bureau-issued or approved handguns and may be issued additional equipment as needed.
Those in specialized areas like the Hostage Rescue Teams may also be issued weapons that fit their duties.
Agents are allowed to carry personal weapons, provided they do not violate the policies regarding firearms.
Unless otherwise instructed, agents are required to be armed at all times.
