I added the eyelets on top of the sides to mount a sling so it can be carried hands free when not engaged

2017-08-01 21:17:20 UTC  

An angled sling would be better

2017-08-01 21:17:31 UTC  

Carrying it like that it will flop around and be a pain in the ass

2017-08-01 21:23:08 UTC  

I think you are right... that's the prototype. Was thinking one more attachment point for a 3 point style sling

2017-08-01 21:25:30 UTC  

I am right

2017-08-01 21:25:37 UTC  

I do a lot of nerdy larp shit wit hshields

2017-08-01 21:29:37 UTC  

Lol I will follow your advice then

This was my first

2017-08-01 21:36:40 UTC  

did you see if they sell curved iron brackets? mine is a round shield. if not no biggie, i may actually just stretch some copper sheeting taut over it and rivet it down.

2017-08-01 21:38:17 UTC  

Not at home depot

2017-08-01 22:12:26 UTC  

copper it is

2017-08-01 22:51:11 UTC  

why metal

2017-08-01 23:00:22 UTC  

Something to cover the ugly plywood

2017-08-01 23:03:41 UTC  

sandpaper and paint

2017-08-01 23:13:34 UTC  

Think metal would be seen as too aggressive and warrant cop attention?

2017-08-01 23:15:58 UTC  


2017-08-01 23:16:05 UTC  

not anymore than anyhting else

2017-08-01 23:16:32 UTC  

Metal is just heavy

2017-08-01 23:16:39 UTC  

I doubt they're going to have swords or halberds or something

2017-08-01 23:18:24 UTC  

I just figure the dings of antifa bodies against it would be a melody

2017-08-01 23:18:48 UTC  

A Symphony of delight

2017-08-01 23:18:59 UTC  

If they did that would be pretty sweet.

2017-08-01 23:25:43 UTC  
2017-08-01 23:27:08 UTC  

Roman symbols?

2017-08-01 23:27:56 UTC  

I see nothing Roman only Germanic

2017-08-01 23:29:30 UTC  

maybe a triskelion, but that'd be lost on normies

2017-08-01 23:29:48 UTC  

Put a swazi on it

2017-08-01 23:30:15 UTC

2017-08-01 23:32:02 UTC  

I'm thinking the flag of Corsica

2017-08-01 23:33:38 UTC  

ddude holy shit

2017-08-02 00:24:35 UTC  

I saw the metal framing and figured it would help protect the edge

2017-08-02 00:24:47 UTC  

It's only 12 gauge steel so it's not very heavy

2017-08-02 01:54:39 UTC  

Just get some hose

2017-08-02 01:54:57 UTC  

Like rubber garden hose

2017-08-02 01:55:59 UTC  


2017-08-02 01:56:08 UTC  

contact cement is your friend for gluing shit too

2017-08-02 15:58:55 UTC  

Found a nice center shield adornment but could it be deemed a weapon with this?

2017-08-02 17:59:44 UTC  

best not to chance it

2017-08-02 17:59:54 UTC  

unless you wanna chance it

2017-08-02 18:17:17 UTC  

I found a black wrought-iron skull about the size of your palm at Home Depot. It's actually a bottle opener back in D handles and knobs department and it's pretty cool

2017-08-02 19:25:46 UTC  

Skull would be fucking bad ass omg. A white painted shield (currently favored color) with a gray or black skull 😍
