Message from Diethard in Charlottesville 2.0 #gear_and_attire
Hastings 1066 or Venezuela 2017??
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
My local gun shop has a semi SAW for sale too
Anyone want to crowd fund me 2500??
^^ dibs for M249
A semi auto belt fead weapon is pointless you would be better off with a M4 or AK for 1/3 the price
Already have one of those ;)
Can you bump fire a 249??
They make semi-auto SAWs?
Automatic literally in the name
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?
That stuff is to hard
You would be better off gluing fome to the back then putting some fabric over it
Or in the mid evil times they used thick lether
Helmet liner pads??
There should be a coordinated shield beating chant that we do to intimidate the enemy
Buy a roll of camp mat at Wall mart for $8
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
I like it! Like a buckler
THIS just premiered at SHOT show 2017, and will definitely be the ticket for Cville 3.0.
@PureDureSure only if you what to get it grabbed and your ass whooped do to the hood controlling you by the shield
That thing is mall ninja junk
If you think that thing is for hand-to-hand, you're sorely mistaken. You mount the rifle for a reason: the standoff distance.
If your watch the promo videos they are trying to promote it as being used for CQB
Mobility is life that thing is death
There is a resin why in Iraq we stoped using full interceptor baddy armor and switched to plate carriers
I'd rather go prone behind cover tbh
But I'll get behind you if you want to carry it ;)
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.
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.
It it is consensus in the LEO and Protection industry that that product is junk and will get people killed
Just like the side armor and arm armor the US MC tried using in Iraq but it got more people hurt then it helped
