    So the FBI, DEA and U.S. Marshals carry .40 caliber Glocks, and "the big boys" (Federal Protective Service) carry the SIG P229?

    The DEA, at least in 2008, were authorized to use a number of pistols. The ones I saw personally used were Glock 22s and 23s, Sig P228/229s, and even a Sig P239...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Some others to consider:

    US Fish and Wildlife Service - Special Agents
    US Park Police
    National Park Service - Law Enforcement Rangers
    BLM - Law Enforcement Rangers
    National Forest Service - Law Enforcement Rangers
    Army CID
    Navy NCIS
    Air Force OSI
    Defense Force Protection Agency

    There's a whole list here:

    The FBI also has uniformed police officers in addition to special agents, as does the Secret Service, and DOD

    TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) Police are Federal Officers. The Supreme Court has a police force, and don't forget the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

    The CIA has it's own uniformed police force as well as plain clothed "security escorts". People on the operations side may be armed outside the U.S. depending on their assignment.

    Oh yes, and any federal "agent" or "officer" that is authorized to carry a weapon will have credentials issued by their agency and their status can be verified with a phone call to their agency's duty officer. If someone claims to be a fed and doesn't have the cred's they are just begging for trouble.

    Federal Agents Guns??

    I did a Bush Motorcade in 2006 and asked my SS Agent what he was carrying. He said 229. I knew what that was. He said what did I carry when not doing a Motorcade, I told him a G-19. He said nice gun, have a nice day.

    At one time overseas, we could tell what agency someone was with by their weapon: Sig=SEAL, Glock=CIA, 1911A1=Army SOF, tricked out M4=AF SAR, and BHP= British/Australian/NZ
