Very generally speaking, police officers carry handguns because they need them for personal protection when they don't have access to a rifle or shotgun. Many police officers have rifles or shotguns in their cruiser, but it's very inconvenient to walk around with one of those all day.

It depends on the State. In New York State, Agents or Officers of a SPCA are Full Time Peace Officers with Full Police Powers. In New York SPCA Officers carry, the same weapons as any police officer, included but not limited to handguns, long guns (patrol rifle), Taser, Batons, OC Spray.

When you're afield hunting, yes. If you're walking through downtown Lexington, you're not going to be able to carry a loaded rifle around with you, however.

You do not give enough information to answer the question. Get a lawyer or ask your local police.

Contact your local police to find out what the laws are about carring long guns in the portion of AL where you live.

Military, Police, Civilians

You need to contact the police

the rifle itself will only travel as far as you carry it

Any sort of rifle yes, but it must be out of arms reach and not loaded, and if pulled over by an officer you must tell them where its at and if its loaded or not.

Well first off, if you have a pistol get a holster. A holster is around your belt at your side, and then a rifle at front. A sling with the rifle would be good because if you run out of ammo on your rifle, than put it on your back with your sling and take your pistol out.

A hunter is a very easy costume to make. All he needs to do to make a hunter costume is to dress in camoflage and carry around a fake rifle. If he wants to get really creative, he could carry around a stuffed deer toy.

There is no ONE best for everything. A great rifle to carry on patrol in jungle is not the rifle for making 1000 meter shots in a desert climate.

Yes, subject to Texas law on doing such. In most states, they must be unloaded and stored separate from the ammo. You need to email the Texas State Police to find out what their conditions are.

Contact your local police to see if there is even a requirment.

Go to Wal-Mart. They carry one that's around $175 (before tax).

That varies between departments/agencies.

yes I think police in patrol cars can have a pistol (handgun) SRT (SWAT team) Can have pretty much everything. added by CenCst Almost all sworn police officers carry firearms in California. There are only a couple law enforcement agencies left in the state, that I know of, that are not armed, and they are special service agencies. There are different levels of law enforcement training required by the state, but any required training to be a sworn peace officer in California includes firearms training. All officers carry a sidearm, most departments have shotguns in the patrol units, at least, with most adding the patrol rifle to the units over the last few years. SRT's, or SWAT teams, often times do carry more advanced weapons that are more suitable for their assignments, but in most cases, it is not a "carry whatever you want". All departments have requirements and set policies on what weapons can be carried by the officers working for that department.

Depends on the gun, your age, and the laws where you are. And there are limits on anything. My grandson is 15, has a .22 rifle- which he can carry hunting. (He has a license, and the permission of his parents- and he lives in the country) He cannot take it to school, etc.

Contact your local police for a correct answer.

Just as a civilian may, a police officer may, too. It is discretion of local law and protocol on use of it as a service rifle whilst on duty. It would, however, be expected to be frowned upon as it is an unreliable, inaccurate rifle that may do too much penetration to put bystanders in harms-way.
