Those bump inserts are so you dont hit your head on a crawlspace
They won't stop a brick or a bottle or a bikelock
Get a kevlar pasgt. They can be had for $50 on eBay and they make riot face shields that attach to them
Kurt V posted a great doc on them
For anyone concerned about covering tattoos, or just protection from sunburn, I'm getting this to go under my white polo. Supposed to be cool, compression, sweat wicking.
Only 14 bucks
Was planning on bringing this, just waiting to see if it gets approval. Still need to do some touching up, but you get the idea.
Lets hope they are!!
What did ya'll reinforce the shield edges with?
Looks like angle iron
I should bring my sabre
At Home Depot back where the brackets for the lumber are located there is an area with flat and angle pieces of metal. Also by the nuts and bolts you can find flat straps
What they said
About $40 worth of material. 15 without the brackets
I added the eyelets on top of the sides to mount a sling so it can be carried hands free when not engaged
An angled sling would be better
Carrying it like that it will flop around and be a pain in the ass
I think you are right... that's the prototype. Was thinking one more attachment point for a 3 point style sling
I am right
I do a lot of nerdy larp shit wit hshields
Lol I will follow your advice then
This was my first
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.
Not at home depot
copper it is
Something to cover the ugly plywood
sandpaper and paint
Think metal would be seen as too aggressive and warrant cop attention?
not anymore than anyhting else
Metal is just heavy
I doubt they're going to have swords or halberds or something
I just figure the dings of antifa bodies against it would be a melody
A Symphony of delight
If they did that would be pretty sweet.
Makena real Viking shield https://www.facebook.com/O.W.Netherlands/videos/1879357082385487/
I see nothing Roman only Germanic
maybe a triskelion, but that'd be lost on normies
Put a swazi on it
