The Firearms Training Unit also administers comprehensive firearms training programs for Agents and law enforcement officers both at the FBI Academy and in the field. These programs are supported through ongoing research and the procurement of weapons, ammunition, and related equipment appropriate for the needs of modern law enforcement. The Firearms Training Unit provides maintenance and inventory for all of the FBI's firearms.
