    It depends. They come standard with a Laspistol and Close Combat Weapon, you replace one of those with the Hunting Lance, you use the other when the lance is gone. Everybody replaces the CCW, because replacing the pistol is useless.
    See page 46 of the codex.

    They are one-time use lances that get replaced with lasguns after use. So yes, you are right in your guess.

    the laspistols aint useless, you can run around shooting with them and also you could give 2 guys special weapons but means they dont get there lance i think, but it would cool if they did.

    Now, the codex says that the guardsmen may REPLACE their CCW or laspistol with a hunting lance. That doesn't sound to me as if they get it back once the lance has been used.

    My understanding from seeing people play at a Games Workshop is this. You replace a weapon with the Lance. Once the lance is used the rough rider begins to use that weapon. This occurs at the end of the turn. Think of it this way, the RR is shething his sword or holstering his pistol so that he can use his lance. He still has the weapon he just can't grow a third arm.

    Well they could grow a third arm but an inquisitor would kill them.

    They have both a Laspistol and a CCW. They replace the CCW or the pistol. Nobody yet has said they get anything back. They just use whatever they didn't replace, and since a pistol counts as a CCW when in CC, it would be a waste to replace the pistol because it can shoot too.

    Just wanted to clear that up.
