2–2. Authority to carry firearms
Due to the serious responsibility imposed on persons authorized
to bear or use firearms, such persons must be selected with
Authorization to carry a firearm includes the authority to permit
or require the firearm to be loaded. Unless otherwise specified
by local policy, authority to carry a loaded firearm will be implied
by issuance of ammunition with the firearm.
Perhaps someone knows some MPs or whatever, and get their take on this. .

I wonder if just using the manual safety on something like the XDm would satisfy them? It would be a simple matter to flick on the safety right before inspection I hate guns with safetys, though - They're also dangerous, especially on something like that special XDm model, which doesn't need it. Whenever I pull the trigger and nothing happens, I always think it malfunctioned since I so rarely use one.

If anyone did that around here, I'm sure they would be corrected, and if they failed to correct, summarily avoided. Of course, we still have jailers that come to work without the now department issued Glock 22 so, go figure.Romans 8:28-31

If you ever hear me refer to security guards and security companies with a touch of disdain it's from personal bad experiences. The security company I work for part time has a no live round policy. I've been reprimanded twice during spot checks when they checked my uniform and my firearm and discovered I have one in the chamber. Nevermind the fact that I'm a cop and have above average intelligence compared to the rest of the dimwits they have working here. The rules are the rules and are there for a reason I keep being reminded. They created that policy and the policy of it being a terminatable offense to bring a firearm into the security administrative offices and training room after a dimwit shot himself in the foot trying to show another employee his new firearm.

I live in the Tidewater area of Virginia and through out this area thee is no department or shreiff's office that has a policy such as that.
As a side note, a policy such as the one you mention could possibly get someone killed!!!Just another voice in the crowd!

As a Reserve Deputy Sheriff: round chambered
For my federal contract security job: round chambered
For my Air National Guard contract security job: round chambered
I wouldn't work anywhere that wouldn't let me carry one in the pipe.
