In Points of Impact by Marko Kloos, Captain Andrew Grayson is given a dressing down, by the CO of the ship Ottawa, for having a personal pistol in his room, after being asked to turn them all in upon boarding.
He fears getting thrown in the brig, and ends up getting off relatively easy, having only to sacrifice alcohol while on board ship.
However, when he suits up for the last drop, he pulls the gun out of his locker and straps it on to do the drop.
Is this an inconsistency in the books? Or did I miss something where they allowed him to keep it, even though it was a flagrant broken rule?
