I understand. - At one post where I was stationed the Deputy Post CDR routinely was carrying a Model of 1917 S&W New Service in .45ACP, when I arrived on post. The Post CDR knew & didn't care.
(I offered him an "as new" Colt's Commando.38SPL & he refused so I swore him in as a Post Game Warden, which authorized him to carry his revolver.)
Fwiw, I sometimes carried a S&W revolver on/off post that was US Property but a "commercial buy".
Note: Personally, I think the Armed Forces are "missing a bet" by NOT swearing in EVERYBODY, who the CDR believes is TRUSTWORTHY enough to be armed & sworn-in as a Post Game Warden.
(When I did that a one small post & we "advertised" that there were 28 new Game Wardens "working in plain clothes", the overall post crime rate went down almost a THIRD & STAYED DOWN.)
When the "local thugs" believe that just any government vehicle may BE a Post Game Warden, the criminal minority often chooses to NOT violate the law. - That may be the BEST reason to swear in extra Game Wardens. = Inexpensive Crime Prevention.
