  1. I’m the one who adopted the Karambit. Gotta say, not only is it a sharp, hefty beast, it’s purty too! Great craftsmanship, as usual.
  2. I’ll take #1. PM me the payment and shipping details please.
  3. HR policy is typically adopted by either ordinance or resolution, depending on the charter language. Likely the mayor is seeking to amend the policy. I’m aware of several city policies that are silent on the issue, they don’t post, and they typically have a clause about personnel observing laws while on duty; and at least one that actively allows it but requires a copy of the HCP on file in HR. Best way to address it is to silently allow. Active support could invite unnecessary risk on the taxpayer if an employee acts irresponsibly, or worse.
  4. Thanks all. That wood stocked one next to the Barrett has me really stumped.
  5. Lol. He does look like he's at the mall. I'm sure he is having a blast. He's retired 18z working civ contract for Africom so he gets to play with toys.
  6. All you world travelers, help me ID any of these weapons from somewhere in Africa. Interesting lot of toys my friend is playing with.
  7. Awesome piece. Back in the '80s I was young and somewhat ill-informed. Bought a gun at a pawn shop for $250 in very good shape chambered for .38 (I thought .38 super at the time...didn't even know wadcutter pistols were a thing). Slide locked back after each shot of .38 super (yeah...I know now) so I sold it for what I had in it. Found out years later from Dick Binkley (once was an AMU armorer) that it was an early Colt .38 AMU. Didn't have the exact markings as yours, but was marked US Property. Still kick myself to this day.
  8. And when you're out of the tender stuff, braise a whole shoulder in beef stock and red wine, with garlic, onions, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, salt, and pepper till it falls off the bone.
  9. Backstrip filets about 3 inches thick wrapped with bacon, a bit of kosher salt and ground black pepper grilled to med rare over hardwood coals.
  10. Spoke with UTK PD today, as well as other jurisdictions where my work takes me (Oak Ridge, Cookeville, Chattanooga, Metro PD, etc.) as most of my work locations aren't under campus PD jurisdiction. UTK was surprisingly positive and helpful, as were other agencies...even Commander Drake's office of the Central Precinct for MNPD. Will need to fill out a UTK form for their campuses statewide. Some municipal PD's and SO's as well as metro allowed me to simply fax a letter to them. Overall, somewhat simple, considering having to send upwards of a dozen letters throughout the state. Here's UTK official policy promulgated today: http://policy.tennessee.edu/safety_policy/sa0875/
  11. As a full time staffer at UT I'm interested in seeing how this all plays out in application. Not that it would apply to me, since I lost all of my firearms, ammunition, gear, and old issues of Guns and Ammo in a tragic boating accident.
  12. [quote name="ffr1910" post="1371773" timestamp="1459732257"]Anyone got a link to this legislation? [/http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/BillInfo/Default.aspx?BillNumber=SB2376&ga=109
  13. No doubt. A few years back I was hunkered down in a makeshift blind calling. Heard a dog barking, getting closer. Through the woods he comes with a doe a hundred yards ahead. Doe jumped right over me. About scared the crap out of me and the doe.
  14. Actually, if you read it closely, it only protects against criminal charges. It doesn't go so far as to protect the employee against adverse employment action (termination) for violating an employer's policy prohibiting guns as does the guns-in-trunks law from last year. While one couldn't be charged if this becomes a public chapter, one could still be fired.
