Buy a roll of camp mat at Wall mart for $8

2017-08-06 22:55:25 UTC  

Cut it out and use spray adhesive or dap contact cement

I decided against it, but for offensive use of a shield it would be hard to beat one of these on each arm! #overkill

2017-08-06 23:30:59 UTC  

I like it! Like a buckler

2017-08-06 23:33:41 UTC  

THIS just premiered at SHOT show 2017, and will definitely be the ticket for Cville 3.0.

2017-08-06 23:52:13 UTC  

@PureDureSure only if you what to get it grabbed and your ass whooped do to the hood controlling you by the shield

2017-08-06 23:52:31 UTC  

That thing is mall ninja junk

2017-08-06 23:58:51 UTC  


If you think that thing is for hand-to-hand, you're sorely mistaken. You mount the rifle for a reason: the standoff distance.

2017-08-06 23:59:43 UTC  

If your watch the promo videos they are trying to promote it as being used for CQB

2017-08-07 00:00:01 UTC  

Mobility is life that thing is death

2017-08-07 00:00:36 UTC  

There is a resin why in Iraq we stoped using full interceptor baddy armor and switched to plate carriers

2017-08-07 00:02:30 UTC  

I'd rather go prone behind cover tbh

2017-08-07 00:02:57 UTC  

But I'll get behind you if you want to carry it ;)

2017-08-07 00:03:02 UTC  

Clearly it's going to be used for breaching/assaults, and in teams. There is a difference between CQB and H2H. If someone gets close enough to you to grab it/you before you've put them down with gunfire, you're already in more trouble than you should be, shield or not.

2017-08-07 00:05:27 UTC  

In situations where law enforcement will have a need for such tactics and equipment, they typically have a great deal more prep time and intel than soldiers are ever afforded. It's for set-piece assaults, not fluid warfare.

2017-08-07 00:06:27 UTC  

@PureDureSure you have never seen combat have you ...

2017-08-07 00:07:23 UTC  

It it is consensus in the LEO and Protection industry that that product is junk and will get people killed

2017-08-07 00:08:22 UTC  

Just like the side armor and arm armor the US MC tried using in Iraq but it got more people hurt then it helped

2017-08-07 00:08:38 UTC  


I also have a room temperature IQ, and can't possibly reason through the scenarios mentioned given the available information, before you ask.

2017-08-07 00:10:31 UTC  

Till you've been there you can't get it. I work PSD and was infantry/ PSD in the army for 17 years including 2 tors in the sand box.

2017-08-07 00:10:40 UTC  

That product is JUNK

2017-08-07 00:10:51 UTC  

*slow clap*

2017-08-07 00:11:08 UTC  

If you what to get your self hurt by using junk go for it

2017-08-07 00:11:33 UTC  

Or you can listen to people that know what they are taking about

2017-08-07 00:11:39 UTC  

Context, sir. Look up the thread.

2017-08-07 00:12:01 UTC  

I'm also a certified CQB and small unit combat instructor

2017-08-07 00:12:22 UTC  

There is NO use for that shield mount it restricts you to much

2017-08-07 00:12:27 UTC  

There's no way that the poster before me was serious about using that "juggernaut" getup, either.

2017-08-07 00:12:49 UTC  

And your legs and lower torso are still vulnerable

2017-08-07 00:13:09 UTC  

I'm explaining the reasoning behind their invention and its marketing, not my intended use case

2017-08-07 00:13:38 UTC  

It sounded like you were trying to say it was a good product

2017-08-07 00:15:30 UTC  

I find the idea amusing. Like the bullshit in those "Army of Two" video games. That's all. Though I have no doubt that they'll find some - and you used the appropriate term - mall ninjas in local police departments to sell a few.

2017-08-07 00:19:34 UTC  

And thanks for rubbing it in about your career. Lol. I was robbed of mine. Nominated to USMA by the then-chairman of HASC, but disqualified from service by DODMERB. I even tried a direct commission years later when some requirements were slackened to ease the personnel deficit brought on by GWOT, but was again denied the chance to fight.

2017-08-07 00:24:08 UTC  


2017-08-07 00:28:11 UTC  

Lol. How could you have known?! I'm picking. I just wanted to point out that I have desperately wanted that life from a young age (my grandfather did WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, and my uncle graduated USMA in 1987), and I'm grateful we have men who have "seen the elephant" in our camp.

2017-08-07 00:30:56 UTC  

We have lots of combat vets going I know lots of TWP are former military

2017-08-07 00:33:33 UTC  

Our high school made us do a year-long project as Seniors, sort of like a junior dissertation. You did a paper and some sort of physical project, presenting both in a formal lecture at year end in order to graduate. I did a detailed study comparing the German campaign in France, 1940 to Operation Desert Storm. Many civilians are still unaware of the Stryker ICV family. At 16, I was closely following its development and knew I wanted eventual command of one of the brigade combat teams.

2017-08-07 00:35:47 UTC  

My inability to wear the uniform has left a tremendous void in my life, with which only my children and this movement have enabled me to cope.

2017-08-07 00:38:41 UTC  

That sucks
