Somebody I work with on base told me that military and law enforcement personnel can write guns, ammo, etc off on their taxes as business expenses. It makes sense. I'm not actually in a combat arms job (I hope to be later), but marksmanship is still a primary job requirement. I won't actually be carrying my own gun in the service, but I do need one(or more) at home to practice with, plus ammo. Anybody know anything about this idea or care to comment?

Yup. My accountant takes off my duty/practice ammo minus the $50.00 ammo allowance I get per year.

Yes sir, a LEO as well. My CPA is a shooter as well. I tend to be conservative on my taxes, since I have seen the IRS in action before. If I am wrong I want them to owe me money.

But if I have purchased a weapon to carry on duty that year and have carried it, extra mags, nightsights, ammo, leather, etc...anything actually related to that expense to carry that weapon (that your employer does not reimburse) is a legitimate tax deduction.
