Would ski goggles work? Lol

Ideally you want something snug fitting and shatter proof.

2017-08-07 16:21:32 UTC  

Keep in mind nothing you will have is likely to completely stop the pepper spray, just slow it down. It does work its way around seals and get in.

2017-08-07 16:21:39 UTC  

ESS are just that and can be found at any decent surplus shop

2017-08-07 16:49:22 UTC  

And something with an anti-fog coating, or to which you have applied and anti-fog coating. It's going to be hot.

2017-08-07 19:43:23 UTC  

ESS goggles are fucking huge though, I have a pair

2017-08-07 19:44:01 UTC  

They have trouble staying in place if you just wear them by themselves without a helmet as well

2017-08-07 19:51:10 UTC  

I don't have that problem

2017-08-07 19:51:18 UTC  

Fit me fine

2017-08-07 21:24:12 UTC

2017-08-07 21:24:19 UTC  

So should bring my armor now ...

2017-08-07 21:27:04 UTC  

Hell with it. I'm bringing my shield baton and my flagpole

2017-08-07 21:53:23 UTC  

Don't wearbody armor

2017-08-07 21:53:32 UTC  

IF you wear body armor and commit a crime in VA it's a felony

2017-08-07 21:53:40 UTC  

Unlawful Assembly is a crime

2017-08-07 22:11:59 UTC  

Wouldn't ware it but it is going in the bag for a worst case sinereo where we take fire

2017-08-07 22:14:00 UTC  

@Hand Banana Also just carrying a fire arm while committing a crime is a felony so any of us CCWing are going to be already fucked if arrested

2017-08-07 22:14:12 UTC  

Hence I won't be CCing

2017-08-07 22:18:26 UTC  

Yeah no thanks I'm not going unarmed anywhere need AntiFA

2017-08-07 22:21:43 UTC  

Thats your individual perogative

2017-08-07 22:22:39 UTC  

Gun = no brawling.

2017-08-07 22:23:49 UTC  

Having fists you can use might be more useful

2017-08-07 22:24:04 UTC  

I don't plan on fighting i plan on keeping my principal safe

2017-08-07 22:24:19 UTC  

The problem is that in some situations they can hold the entire group accountable for the one as part of "the problem." So if one is arrested and carrying, it can effect everybody. I won't tell you not to carry, just be mindful of the major consequences potentially involved.

2017-08-07 22:24:42 UTC  

If shit gets bad I have some one I need to get the hell out of dodge

2017-08-07 22:24:47 UTC  


2017-08-07 22:25:06 UTC  

Do what you think is best for you, knowing your own personal ability to handle these situations.

2017-08-07 22:25:26 UTC  

For the average Joe Blow, I'd say leave the firearm at home.

2017-08-07 22:44:17 UTC  

Don't let yourself be "that cuck" without a torch for Friday night's vigil!

2017-08-08 00:33:29 UTC  

Shields at the ready...

2017-08-08 19:17:17 UTC  

I've seen people talking about how a hat and sunglasses together is covering too much, but I don't know if that's based on law or a guess

2017-08-08 19:21:50 UTC  

Find a white cop with rank insignia to ask

2017-08-08 19:26:41 UTC  

anyone using a shield, what are you using in your other hand? i see batons are discouraged but would a 3 foot dowel be deemed unlawful?

2017-08-08 19:26:58 UTC  

or 2 feet, whatever length

2017-08-08 19:28:25 UTC  

I think flag poles are what most would be carrying

2017-08-08 19:36:42 UTC  

What is the dress code for Friday night's tiki torch gathering - white polos?

2017-08-08 19:37:38 UTC  

Hawaiian shirts and shorts

2017-08-08 19:38:02 UTC  

Tiki torches are the last stand of implicit whiteness

2017-08-08 19:39:30 UTC  

is there a standard issue gear list for attendees?

2017-08-08 20:02:52 UTC  

>tfw you look like a school shooter
