    How long did you have yourself handcuffed (to the steering wheel?) to come to this conclusion?

    ME= Hiatts, chain. twins.

    Contemplating ASP's, however would go Peerless if anything else.

    Carrying a gun on client property is a termination offense. If a coworker sees it and rats you out you are gonna be looking for another job.

    Oh yes sir ASP-guy. Because no one resists when they are going to get locked up...

    ASP's not so good... for us

    We currently issue Peerless and I like them. Much more of a smooth action than S&W. We were going to switch to the ASP's for a few reasons, mostly cost and weight. We were issued a set for one of our quarterly training weeks and almost all the sets broke. Mine didn't but most of the others bent on the dual-band side rendering them unusable.

    That's the pair I have. I received a notice that the locking mechanism could be updated w/o charge by ASP. However, that was NOT the reason they gave. The message I received questioned the durability of the mechanism, not the security. Since mine worked fine, I disregarded the notice. I'll have to revisit this problem.
    Get them switched, there's way too much anecdotal evidence that the yellow eyes will basically fall out.

    the first edition asp cuffs where pick able. i think they were called (yellow eye) as that was the color of the indicator.....

    now they are (red eyes) on the second series as to help identify them from the first set, they have fixed the problem with the first set


    i may have reversed the eye colors.... but it is one way or the other yellow/red red/yellow

    I'd like to see that. I have a pair and this is the first time I've heard that.
