I was discussing ccw stuff with an 'acquaintance' and he said he was buying a set of handcuffs. I asked if he was gonna carry them. He replied "sure if i have to stop someone, if i can prone them out I'm gonna cuff'emup" All I could think is "uh huh...right"
My thought is, they probably are not gonna lay down for me. I wouldn't if i was a BG figuring a regular armed citizen is not gonna shoot me in the back, I'd run away. Ok assuming they do prone out for ya. Are ya opening yourself up to crap like "illegal" imprisonment, kidnapping, etc. charges for such an activity?
Next, he said "plus if anybody Sees my cuffs on my belt (and my gun) they will think I'm a cop and not call the cops on me for an accidental display of my weapon.
Mall-ninja and cop-wannabe come to mind but the legal aspects are what I wonder about.
What do you all think?
