Default interesting occurrence tonight

Took my wife and daughter out for ice cream at a local shop tonight. This place is always extremely busy with lots of people and long lines. While standing on line, I noticed two young men with two young ladies. Both young men were in plain street clothes but what they were carrying was of interest. They both were open carrying, with two extra mags. Both had pocket knives, flashlights, and one had hanfcuffs... All on their belts. Now I am about 80% certain they were not LEO...have no problem with open carry..its legal here..but cuffs and open carry extra Mags plus everything else... Just appeared odd to me....thoughts?

Cuffs are for LEOs, Bail Bondsmen, and kinky sex.

Aren't many ladies who would be impressed with such a show...

I'm not sure whether they would be the type to grab a'hold of for life or the type from which to keep a distance.

Hmmm....

Agree c3...that's what struck me as odd. The other stuff..well if you want that much hangin' off of you at once thats your business..but thought the cuffs were a little much.
I don't want too sound like I had a problem with it...hell I would open carry if it was more socially accepted...guess it was just basically full LEO gear belts with Jeans and tucked in tshirts..haha

Most LEOs I know would also be wearing their badge on their belt. Sound like wannabe's to me.
