There is a good thread going about personal weapons on bases and housing.

My question is what is the deal/regs about personal weapons on deployment/combat?

Seen it in the movies such as Band of Brothers where a revolver was sent to a trooper right before "D" Day. Can a man today in the military purchase his own 1911 or ruger, glock, revolver, or whatever and carry it in a combat zone????????

I'm not in the military, deputy, but I have a magazine here, Handgunner Tactical 2008 special edition that has an article written by Massad Ayoob. The article is written about Dave Lauck of D&L Sports. In it Dave talks about service personel buying their own custom 45's for duty. So although I don't know for a fact that they can, according to the story they can. The one tested for the article was sent afterwards to it's owner in the middle east.

Officially no. It would be hard to get your personal weapon into a combat situation in the Regular Army. As Regular Army goes through tight customs, and inspections before being deployed. You will probably even get a court martial if your caught by customs or even your own unit.

Special Operation Units are a breed of their own, and pretty much do as the want.
