Dumb question: Can you holster a pistol in ARMA?

I noticed they reworked the safemode stance no longer allowing for you to totally sling you weapon on to your back.  Is this also disabled?  I suspected there might be a way to add it back to the action menu.  anyone know?

Holstering your weapon or putting it on your back does not appear to be in Armed Assault. I know you can lower your weapon to a safe position, but that's it.

You could create an action that deleted the weapon then recreated it (removeWeapon then addWeapon). I know that works for launchers like the M136, though can't promise it does for rifle/pistol type weapons.

What if you fire a weapon and have 5 bullet left. I don't think you can put a certain amount of ammo back in a weapon. Like you said, the M136 has 1 round so won't be a problem.

Aye, that is the problem; you will unload the weapon if you do that (or rather get a free reload with your most full magazine), which I hadn't considered. Finding about the M136s was just a byproduct of scripting a truely disposable M136 (removeWeapon after it has fired), so the ammo problem wasn't an issue for me.

**EDIT -> clarified**
