K, pehaps its just the misprinting in my codex, but the chaos marine entry says quote, "Each model may have a close combat weapon and either a bolter or bolt pistol." Now, perhaps I'm just reading it wrong but it seems, at least with my codex wording, I can naturally have a bolter AND a close combat weapon. Anyone have any thoughts?

You can. But that alone doesn't mean you have true grit. You just have the weapons then which you would need to use true grit, if you had it...but you don't. Unless you happen to use plague marines.
A bolter is a two handed weapon. If you have a bolter and a close combat weapon, you don't get the +1 bonus for having 2 close combat weapon because the bolter is too huge to be used in close combat.
A pistol can be counted as an additionnal close combat weapon, therefore you might add +1 attack.
True grit allows you to use the bolter in close combat as if it was a pistol, then you have the +1 attack bonus of the pistol, but you don't get an extra attack for charging.
That's it. It's like having a pistol that can shoot at 24" but no extra attack on charging.

i've read that rule many times before and every time i read it, i've always thought it was just the chaos marine with ccw and bolt pistol, OR just a bolter, and the ccw was just for show.
however i think it'd good if chaos marines had true grit.
So the final say is:No Chaos Marines may have a ccw and a bolter but unless their plague marines they may only use the bolter as a ranged weapon and may not add the +1 for having two close combat weapons and at this i believe a mod like Caluin or Chaosbyrne should close this ancient link!
