Depends on his agency's policy. Same as any other LEO.

Delta what I am telling you? You can take it to the bank. The Obama rules have changed firearms policy.

Almost all federal agents are required to carry everywhere they go even off duty. Now federal police are different many do not have statutory arrest authority and are not covered by leosa or hr218. As for bounty hunting I knowing Texas all you need is a commissioned security officer license and a bail bondsmen to employ you and you can work as a bail enforcer there are a few laws such as not wearing anything that says agent, officer or other terms to make people think you are a state or federal official. Also when you are new don't expect to get a high $ bond amount for a while you will most likely get $1000-5000 bonds which means you'll get paid maybe $100-500 per successful retrieval. It is also an expensive field to get into as you will have to pay tons of subscription fees for access to databases and also have to build basically an intelligence network if you ever want to be successful.

plus a recovery agent hasto foot all his expenses and doesn't get paid until he recovers the fugitive. what if it's a few weeks or a couple of months in between finding and recovering a fugitive? better have some built up cash for those lean times in between jobs and from not finding the fugitive to hold a person over.

plus starting out, they are not going to give high profile and expensive bail jumpers to a new and unexperianced recovery agent.

Not every where. Federal Agents are restricted in areas of Washington D.C. It is such a hassle many guns are just left in lockers when visiting "Mecca".

in certain areas and jurisdictions yes it's restricted when I took the us marshal exam in NYC two federal Air Marshals were also taking it and even with a memorandum signed by the director of the Air Marshal program stating they are required to carry everywhere they still had to check the weapons in to a locker as ordered by a g4s security guard. When I worked at West Point the only federal agents we allowed to carry on post was FBI that were assigned there, CID, and the mint police all others had to check into the mp station, but by doing so they were in violation of employers regulations stating they carry everywhere 24/7 figure that one out and how much sense that makes lol. We did have a few that tried to use the authority of position to refuse and enter anyway they were immediately met with resistance in the form of pop up barriers and a mossberg 1100 pointed directly at the engine block.
