Same goes for the Knoxville Police Department. A few years ago I had been to a friends farm to shoot some assault rifles. On the way home I got t-boned by a drunk which flipped my jeep slinging some 8 assault rifles all over the road right downtown Knoxville. I was pinned under the jeep. I came to in the hospital and remembered my guns. I called my father and asked him to go down to the Police Department to see if they had all the guns and if they would let me have the guns back. I had my doubts since I knew I had left one rifle with rounds in the mag (I always keep something nearby with rounds in the mag just in case). The Knoxville Police Department turned the rifles over to my dad. They did unload the one rifle, but no problems getting em back. And to my surprise I had minimum damage to the guns. Most were in hard cases but my HK 91 was in a soft case and ended up with a dented mag. (Inventory: 1- M1a; 3 - ak variants;1- HK 91; 1- Belgium Fal; 1- AR 15; 1- Car 15.)
It's great to have common sense law enforcement.
Oh, and the drunk who hit me was a hit and run. They caught him a week later when they found his Mercedes convertible hidden under a tarp in a parking lot downtown Knoxville. A piece of signal light cover the officer had picked up at my accident site matched the busted one on the Mercedes perfectly. Nice bit of police work.

I have just finished assembling a rather nice 1928A1 which is made up from parts I picked up at the TCA show in Fairfax last month and a receiver and barrel I had obtained locally here in New Zealand.
I had to take the completed gun over to the local Police station to get the Transfer of the receiver into my name.
I could not find my usual gun bag and looked around the gun room for something to put the gun in and remembered that I had an old violin case that I had bought some time ago to make up a display case but my 1921's would not fit into the case because of the vertical forgrip.
This latest 1928 however, has a horizontal foregrip and it fitted nicely so off I go to the cops with the Thompson in the violin case.
I will leave the rest to your imagination but I dam near got locked up.
They thought it was a great joke and as only gangsters would have a"Tommy guns" in violin case , then I should naturally be locked up.
I only just escaped!
