Does my gun have to be black for a security guard job?

I am planning on getting my security guard/w firearm license. During the course, will I have to supply my own gun or will they supply one during the course? Also, if I do get the job, will they supplyy a gun or do I have to use my own? Every security guard with a gun has a black gun, I have a stainless steel gun. Could I use that or does it have to be black?

You will be employee. You have to obey the guide lines of the security guard. You can not use your gun which may not serve the purpose.

There is no law, but there might be a company policy. . Sometimes companies "reimburse" or give an allowance after 90 days. Best to just ask the armed guards... More
