If you should make it back here to VA, give me a shout, we'll go shoot something.

Re: carrying handcuffs. IMHO, bad idea. First if you have not been trained on them, you can get hurt. BADLY. Second, if I have had to draw on you, I am NOT getting close enough to touch you- or have you touch me.

Re: Legalities- a CCW permit does not grant nor expand arrest authority. Arrest by a private citizen WILL vary state by state. We have a couple of attorneys that are members- do not see any of them posting in this thread.

If you do not have a law license, please refrain from offering legal advice.

You have to be trained in the operation and use of handcuffs,you may think "how hard can they be to use?" i know, but there is training for them and like C3 said, they can be dangerous if used improperly. EXAMPLE: if im a halfway intelligent BG and i see that you are gonna "attempt" to cuff me, i will "let" you apply one cuff then im gonna use the loose cuff as a weapon on you. Also if you are carrying around cuffs and you shoot somebody, it will be brought up in court "against you", and like already stated,you should never be that close to a BG. I just dont reccomend private citizens to carry handcuffs.

As a civilian you need to leave the cuffs at home. As an off duty LEO I don't even carry a set on my person. I do have a couple sets that stay in my vehicle though...but for the civilian CCW holder I recommend leaving them at home.
