    So, lots of class time and lots of range time.

    Our Reserves have the exact same ID as the full timers the ID card makes no distinction, it just says "Deputy" on it.

    The Sheriff did this just to avoid any confusion if traveling out of state. In some states the Reserves are not sworn, so they cannot carry.

    What you get into though, is if you are traveling in a state like New York, where Reserves aren't much different that parking lot attendants, aren't sworn, don't carry a gun, and don't do much that the full timers do, is if they see "Reserve" on your ID card, then they will treat you like they do for their Reserves and it can be a pain in the butt.

    This happened to one of ours a year or so ago, and resulted in him being detained until our Sheriff was contacted and he was cleared after explaining to them. As a result of that action, the Reserves were issued the same ID cards, on the back it explains that they are Sworn Deputy's, have powers of arrest and carry a gun.

    Since then there have been no problems with anyone carrying in another state.
