    BOS Handcuffs

    I have only ever carried 1 brand and that is BOS - which cost me a shift's $$$ to purchase back in 1993 (same keys as S/W) but apart from training and demonstrations have never needed to use them as we were taught to detain and hold until police arrived unless otherwise necessary. Use of handcuffs here is a big no-no unless you are the police and even special constables (have been before) are restricted to what they can and cannot do.

    The product description.... Thats why I like them.

    I carry two pair of S&W Model 1 cuffs, 1 pair hinged and 1 chain. I love the Model 1s because they have a slightly bigger bow so thet fit people with larger wrists and are easier to get on a resisting subject. The only problem with them is that because of their size it's hard to find cases that fit.

    Curtis, I found my receipt for my first pair of handcuffs, Sep 1968. The ones we used in service were OD American with a God awful looking key.

    But what I actually meant they fit in your hand nice when cuffing others and go on really easy
    I kinda figured that I was just teasin' ya. I

    nteresting to hear that they go on easy right of the box (meaning brand new). I remember a few guys who bought their cuffs only spend countless hours cycling them over and over to loosen them up. I never bothered with it.

    ME= Hiatts, chain. twins.

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

The painful little edge on the inner edge of cuff gave more than a few a reminder.

    Now, before everyone starts lighting up their political correctness bon fires, and marching up to my castle in a quasi formation closely ressembling a mob at midnight, torches in hand. Calm down. The little edge didn't draw blood or chop people's wrist's off. It just hurt like hell when the cuffs were tweeked because someone wasn't obeying the lawful orders given. Like, Stop fighting me...

    again, this was back in the day, not currently being done...

    Get it???
    Not to worry. I haven't cleaned mine since they were new (1972). They still contain trace amounts of skin and blood. The hell with PC!

    I don't carry any now, but in corrections it was always peerless. Some guys carried S&W, but I believe that Peerless are the best.

    We did contact ASP and they said it was our handcuffing technique. That we should never try to handcuff a resiting subject. Well that maybe so in some training circles, but we NEVER had a single problem with our Peerless.
