Stay hydrated brothers
Maalox is good for pepper spray as well
Any antacid that won't harm the eyes
Are we all bringing fidget spinners or...?
VA law bans items that look like ninja stars
How will I soothe my tism then?
@khaos156-WV a simple internet search would have spared you the indignity of labeling well-meaning advice - from personal experience, no less - a "bad troll"
What's the general consensus on what to wear/bring defensive gear or normal clothing?
dress nicely. Khakis and a polo or semi casual button down
I'd recommend smart looking, neat clothing. Personally I'm not a big fan of the whole paramilitary or LARPing look. I believe khakis and a collared shirt is more effective optics.
Breathable, light material for the heat.
Good shoes or boots with ankle support and tread for obvious reasons
Obviously that goes for those like me who are just attending. Security detail/ shield wall folks should coordinate amongst themselves
Yeah my crew is going in black polos and black pants
@Kurt yeah ? I spent 2 weeks in TN mid month and wore the same thing heat doesn't bother me
Going for the black block look eh?
It will be cooler then eating body armor in the sand box 😊
@Thomas Morrow Nah Just my normal work / PSD clothing I've gotten use to doing black on black 😊 I don't like light colored clothing they get dirty to fast and show blood
Blood doesn't show on black
Have something that shows you on our side... in a melee shit gets confusing
Hopefully the police do their jobs and there won't be a melee
There will be lots of black on black on our side being TWPs colors are black on black I think same with NSM
The whole thing is going to be a powder keg, it'll turn into a shit show if a melee breaks out
Hope for the best prepare for the worst I guess
There will be melees
Mark my words
If you are unable to tell the difference between TWP/NSM and AntiFa because they are wearing black you should just BLEEP yourself
like everything else.... hope the best. Prepare for the worst
Looks like our SC SBC will be going with red polos
You know what would go real well with a white polo?
A pith helmet
@negronaut Or if you want something cheap that does the trick you can go with one of these
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
