I won't say (although my fellow panelist may speak out himself) but as far as I know it was completely legal. My fellow panelist carried a badge in another jurisdiction and with varying requirements for advance notice, one locality will often honor a fellow officer's right to carry a concealed weapon.

It was a definite surprise but also a definite hoot to look past his flared lapel (out of sight of the audience staring at us) and see the butt of a .45. At that moment, when he muttered to me that a concealed .45 wasn't that obvious, I had to agree.
