    I've heard you can write off ammo, range time, mileage and anything else for firearms proficiency. It is a "charitable donation" to the government.

    What is going on with the IRS lawsuit right now against an FFDO? The last I heard about this the IRS disagrees with ALPA and what the FLETC is saying an saying nothing is deductible... IMO it sounds like an IRS agent has a bug up his rear. I wonder how far it will go in court and will it make it all the way to the end. I'd use caution until a decision is made...

    I write off anything that comes out of my pocket when it pertains to FFDO!
