I think if people have the funds and we get enough of these they would make a great shield wall for vips
I also think we should put our vips in body armor for optics. "We need to wear these vests because we can't trust the left to not assassinate our people" good red pill for normies.
I like the aesthetic of shields, in general. Optics saying that we are about defense. All of this is in our own defense. Until we're pushed too far.
I like that cold steel one in that it's small enough that it can be used offensively when throwing punches.
Exercising your legal second amendment is bad optics but larping like some mad max extra is "aesthetic" and good for optics..? This logic legitimately confuses me
All I'm saying is that a gun won't stop a brick from smashing your face.
@Americana - MD Gotta say I agree. Shields are great. I love shields. But they don't look very professional at all.
@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA all I'm saying is a shield won't stop a round from penetrating your torso. And it certainly isn't a good weapon against anything ranged.
It's America in the 21st century can we act like it?
Sure thing. So body armor and concealed carry?
Concealed or open why not?
I thought open carry was being deemed as a no go...
It's obviously a political statement saying we support the right to bear arms(inb4 muh civil liberties) and it's a decent show of force. it's not childish or larpy, and it's totally legal.
I agree with you. I thought one of the admins put out that we shouldn't open carry...trying to find which tag it was under.
It was under announcements.
For my part, lightweight vest under casual, clean clothes. Mouthguard (ask @Havamal I don't leave home without it). That's it. Not there to escalate; there to help my brethren if they're in danger.
I'm glad you said something... mouth guard now in my to get list
Ive got a vest to wear underneath.
mouthguard is prob critical
At. All. Times.
@Uilliam Cionnaoith - MD We should drill leg kicks before the event.
Teeks* However they spelt
Best mouth-guards in the business.
I like my Venom better than my shock doctor.
Mouth guards lol
Sanctioned fights with antifa only goys!
I'll be checking gloves
This is the way to go with shields to not look larpy
Clear, modern shields would look the best
Was my exact idea
Concealed carry only because open carry is retarded. You will get cracked in the head from behind and they will steal your pistol. Bring your rifle and plates in the car parked nearby, pistol concealed with enough ammo to get to the car if shit really goes down. That's worst case, I doubt antifa will really even do much with the sheer number of people we have.
I don't think antifa wants to really kill us. it's kind of like how the Joker doesn't want to kill Batman. He would have nothing to do if Batman was dead. Antifa only exists because of people like us. If we go, they go.
They aren't going to do anything. Just look at what happened in Austin on may day. They were open carrying and they still got the shit kicked out of them and had all of their stuff stolen. The most they would do is try to stab people but the police and our sheer numbers should deter that
Antifa doesn't attack unless they outnumber at least 3 to 1 and even then they might not
