    I'd love to start a poll.

    How many have tried the old "Cool" loop them inside/outside the pants in the area of the small of the back----and dropped them in a toilet?

    anybody want to fess up? (besides me)

    I carry a X26 and sometimes a G26 in cargo pockets and do a fair amount of late night 400m urban relays and its really not bad.

    I'm not exactly dainty though.

    I want a pair of ultra light handcuffs. I need to find some. Like those older Hiatts.

    I tried that thing and promptly got the cuffs snagged on a piece of the patrol car many moons ago, so the strap went away. Still, I think your story is worse.

    I've got to admit, this thread became very interesting to me a few days ago when I decided I wanted to start carrying my 3rd set of cuffs on my person, JIC. I've got a somewhat open slash pocket on my outer carrier which may work, but I'd really like to try them in my left side cargo pocket. That nemesis idea looks solid, we'll see...

    Summer games 2016???? :tongueout:

    One of the guys at work throws an extra set in his plate carrier, not sure how I feel about that. I carry 2 on the belt and a 3rd in my cargo pocket. Mika's holsters are top-notch, I think I need to pick up one of the cuff cases too :)

    One of my partners in my beat carries a third set in his left cargo pocket. He took his pants to a seamstress who sewed a little handcuff shaped pocket within the pocket with an elastic material. When he puts the cuffs in that elastic pocket, it holds the cuffs tight, but not tight enough where he can't draw them out.
