You're going to want some padding on the back of the shield, too

2017-08-06 19:35:40 UTC  

iirc the best foam to use would be a high density closed cell foam (like what camping mats are made from)

2017-08-06 19:36:51 UTC  

DAP contact cement as an adhesive

2017-08-06 19:37:38 UTC  

A 2x4 shield is hard to use offensively

You can throat punch a nigga with the bottom edge of a 2x2

2017-08-06 19:38:18 UTC  

We're mostly aiming for defensive shield use afaik

This for the official shield wall detail?

2017-08-06 19:40:23 UTC  

If so forget what I said...

2017-08-06 19:41:32 UTC  

i might not even need mine but i'm bringing one just in case

2017-08-06 19:42:34 UTC  

These are the best shields you can use for a defensive formation, which is what we are aimaing to achieve.

2017-08-06 19:43:15 UTC  

If youre bringing one, might as well familiarize yourself with the shield wall tactics in case you need to jump in there

2017-08-06 19:43:33 UTC  

the best defense is a good, mobile offense

2017-08-06 19:44:01 UTC  

but i will abide by the designated tactics by the field marshall

2017-08-06 19:44:32 UTC  

Hastings reenactors

2017-08-06 19:45:17 UTC  

In a melee, the best defense is one the opponent cannot get past. A shield wall is that, and tower shields make for an effective shield wall.

2017-08-06 19:45:44 UTC  

Projectile defense.

2 ranks, 1st rank kneels

2017-08-06 19:46:42 UTC  

Hastings 1066 or Venezuela 2017??

2017-08-06 19:47:35 UTC  

Hope other folks are bringing fire extinguishers

Maybe I've been watching too many euro maiden and Hamburg videos but molotovs concern me

That is for Cville 3.0

2017-08-06 19:49:58 UTC  

My local gun shop has a semi SAW for sale too

Anyone want to crowd fund me 2500??

2017-08-06 20:26:01 UTC  

^^ dibs for M249

2017-08-06 20:52:07 UTC  

A semi auto belt fead weapon is pointless you would be better off with a M4 or AK for 1/3 the price

2017-08-06 21:08:55 UTC  

Already have one of those ;)

2017-08-06 21:10:30 UTC  

Can you bump fire a 249??

2017-08-06 21:20:15 UTC  

@Stannisthemannis You can bumpfire anything

2017-08-06 21:20:31 UTC  


2017-08-06 21:20:56 UTC  

They make semi-auto SAWs?

2017-08-06 21:21:34 UTC  

Automatic literally in the name

2017-08-06 22:06:57 UTC  

For padding on the backside, there is that spray foam stuff that comes in a can. I think it's called Kwik Foam. It expands pretty good once its sprayed on. Anyone tried that?

2017-08-06 22:16:21 UTC  

That stuff is to hard

2017-08-06 22:17:15 UTC  

You would be better off gluing fome to the back then putting some fabric over it

2017-08-06 22:17:45 UTC  

Or in the mid evil times they used thick lether

2017-08-06 22:29:41 UTC  

Helmet liner pads??

2017-08-06 22:46:50 UTC  

There should be a coordinated shield beating chant that we do to intimidate the enemy

2017-08-06 22:55:14 UTC  

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
