It is usually not a good idea to attempt to tie up someone that you are holding at gunpoint. There are too many opportunities for them to attack and disarm you. Wait for backup.

I really had to “clean” my comments up or I would be in that diversity training class again. From what I heard, you really don’t want to take that class the second time.
Seems like it would be easier if you shot him first, THEN handcuff him.
Better yet,Shoot The A**HOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are other alternatives to handcuffs and plastic cable ties, too. And some can be applied to the recipient with minimal action by the applier.
