    As a civilian,I'd say no. Deter & Defend is our responsibility. Apprehend should be left to the pros.
    But I do have some if it ever became absolutely necessary. Sometimes it takes awhile for the pros to show up.

    I have a nice pair of S&W cuff's that belonged to my father, they must be at least 50 years old, but I can't imagine to many circumstances where they would be useful. Personally, if I ever find myself in a situation where use of deadly force is justified and the BG is still alive ( even if they give up ) I don't want to get that close to them.
    I don't want to be a LEO, I just want to stop the threat. I think you are looking for trouble if you venture
    beyond your basic use of deadly force rights.......... Bill

    Not that I would carry handcuffs but I could see a limited use for having a criminal handcuff their ankle to their wrist or some other such comical position.

    I wouldn't. I am not a LEO nor do I play one on TV...... There are many reason LEO's go thru training on how to cuff a BG..
