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

2017-08-06 22:55:27 UTC  


2017-08-06 23:30:00 UTC  


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
