It is difficult to see what need a cryptographer, working indoors on an essentially desk-bound duty slot, would have a need to pack the heat! It was rumored that even in World War 2 G-2 (army Intelligence) agents on domestic duty normally did not carry firearms nor were they instructed in their use. a person who claimed to have been a G-2 agent (in logistics) once told me-nevr any firearms instruction, shooting practice , anything like that, they asked me if I knew what a .45 was, but never offered me one or any briefings on its use-they di not carry guns.
