    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?

    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.

    true on the badge. if a couple of wannabe's, the cuffs are a bit much.

    Most likely "Food Nazis". Mooshell Obama is cracking down on kids eating fat food. Some of these 6 year old ice cream eaters can be very violent. :eek:

    IMO, good! They are mainstreaming our 2A rights,

    and getting a skittish public de-sensitized to OC.

    You said you were 80% sure they were not LEO's... Right?

    Did the cuffs create the 20% doubt?

    Sounds like a lot of crap to carry to me too... but if your an OC guy tired of dealing with the Fuzz everytime a soccer ewe pops an eye socket over your sidearm and calls 911, well, having a little doubt on yourside may not be a bad thing.

    Tack

    Good for citizens arrest, if opportunity arose. I say good for them. Isn't the motto around here better to be prepared? Sounds line that's precisely what they were.

    I usually keep a couple of pairs of zip cuffs with me along with my rifle when I'm out working on the family property just in case never know. Plus cuffs are a lot easier to use then hog tying someone, also easier on the LEO's backs because the suspect can at least walk.
