Just one very quick question:
I've always assumed everyone equips their Infantry squad sergeants with a laspistol and a chainsword but the thought crossed my mind that maybe a lasgun would be better since one CCW might not make much of a difference.
I'm not even sure if they are allowed to do that so is it allowed and if so does anyone do this?
One of the most arbitrary rules change annoyances about the new codex is that they took away the ability to equip a Sgt. with a Lasgun.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
Seconded. I've had to build new sargeants for all my infantry squads because of this change.
What Guardsmen dont want to hear...
"Ok boys, time to fix bayonets!"
Lol at "nerd fury engaged." +Rep for making me LOL. I will say I was highly annoyed by that rules change, my Sargeants had been modeled with a pistol and CCW with a lasgun slung over their back... with 5th edition I had to remove them all
I will say, though, that at least 3-4 times now I've heard people say "Sargeants have THREE attacks?!?!?!?!" (2 base + 1 for pistol/CCW) Of course they don't do anything in CC but it's still amusing.
That was the most irritating part of the new codex. Why do they have to make us all remodel?
I prepped my sergeants to be modelled with boltguns, which were legal in the old codex - my CCS medic still has one, which I'll need to take off...
In any case, I'll be modelling my sergeants with lasguns despite the new codex for fluff reasons - I'll simply ask my opponant before the game if I can use the gun as such. No great shakes if they refuse, I prefer the look to LP/CCW anyday.
Meh, leave them with lasguns and just tell your opponent that sergeants all have the carbine version of a las-rifle. It looks a bit like a lasgun from a distance but has the exact same stats as a las-pistol.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
I think i got screwed over more than most by that little change. All my Guard armies are Metal.
So for My Classic Cadians (that you can't buy anymore) i had to traul ebay and scrounge off mates and GW staffers to try and get the sergeant models.
I'm sure none of your opponents would mind you just using a LAsgun equiped model as the sergeant. My opponents wouldn't. Just try and remember he's only got a laspistol. I'm just a Wysiwig perfectionist freak.. OCD for the win!
