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
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
