you get more mobility with that type, but my understanding is we are looking for a more defensive posture, so a roman style shield is probably better suited.

2017-07-30 07:05:03 UTC  

There is a reason armies evolved from those to smaller shields too

2017-07-30 07:06:37 UTC  

yeah its about mobility, and fatigue over long marches

2017-07-30 07:07:02 UTC  

On a hot sunny humid Virginia afternoon...

2017-07-30 07:08:36 UTC  

luckily we wont be moving anywhere

2017-07-30 07:10:33 UTC  

Hopefully

I also quick detach straps so if antifa grab it to pull me into them I can detach it quickly to avoid being sucked in

2017-07-30 07:10:41 UTC  

Added*

2017-07-30 07:11:09 UTC  

thats a good idea

2017-07-30 07:11:19 UTC  

do you have a kevlar?

2017-07-30 07:11:53 UTC  

I do

2017-07-30 07:13:22 UTC  

Also have soft body armor but won't be bringing it. Might see about getting some steel plates for a PC for the stab protection

2017-07-30 07:13:58 UTC  

Yeah I have been debating on wearing a PC, but there is coming really confrontational about it

2017-07-30 07:15:38 UTC  

I'm more worried about knives and tazers than firearms

2017-07-30 07:16:26 UTC  

hopefully the cops will do their jobs

2017-07-30 07:16:34 UTC  

and we wont have to worry about it

2017-07-30 07:17:17 UTC  

I think they will

Rural VA cops are our people

They hate the left as much as we do

2017-07-30 07:17:37 UTC  

we arent in rural va though

2017-07-30 07:17:53 UTC  

But the VSP recruits from there

2017-07-30 07:18:37 UTC  

yeah hopefully the VSP shows up in force.

2017-07-30 07:18:56 UTC  

They Btfo'd antifa few weeks ago

2017-07-30 07:21:55 UTC  

well yeah, antifa was messing with their guys

2017-07-30 07:26:45 UTC  

They will again...

2017-07-30 07:37:03 UTC

Here is my plate carrier. In addition to the plates I have purchased some sheet metal heavy enough to withstand puncture from a switchblade or screwdriver and patted it with half of a package of eight and a half by eleven paper. You cannot drive an ice pick through it by hand

2017-07-30 14:34:24 UTC  

@greg-ky that AR500 armor?

2017-07-30 14:37:21 UTC  

Yea. 200$ it weighs about 22 lb with the plates in it I had to cumberbund for the sides as well

2017-07-30 14:46:06 UTC  

I was pricing some out last night, and it was like $350

2017-07-30 14:50:00 UTC  

This place has Spartan armor, same as pictured for $99 per plate in their retail shop, not sure about online but worth a look

I'm saving up for ceramic. Steel is heavy and good green tip 556 ammo punches right through it at 100 yards

2017-07-30 14:57:06 UTC  

AR500 has a lvlIII+ steel that is rated for green tip

2017-07-30 14:57:44 UTC  

my issue with ceramic is that it has a really short shelf life, and it is super easy to break

2017-07-30 14:58:37 UTC  

I fell out the back of a 7 ton and cracked a sapi once. It really cannot take the beating

2017-07-30 15:02:06 UTC  

Have you seen the super light synthetic plates? It's level 3+ or 4 but weighs 3 or 4 pounds?

2017-07-30 15:02:39 UTC  

no

2017-07-30 15:02:52 UTC  

i bet that is expensive as shit

2017-07-30 15:05:19 UTC  

This has a 3A rating. It's not rated for your rifle calibers but it'll go up to a 44 Magnum

2017-07-30 15:07:22 UTC  

yeah I was looking at the 3+ stuff

2017-07-30 15:07:37 UTC  

the lightweight 3+ looks decent

2017-07-30 15:07:48 UTC  

@greg-ky were you wearing that to the rally?
