Going for the black block look eh?

2017-07-31 17:54:53 UTC  

It will be cooler then eating body armor in the sand box 😊

2017-07-31 17:56:13 UTC  

@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

2017-07-31 17:56:30 UTC  

Blood doesn't show on black

2017-07-31 17:56:36 UTC  

Lol

2017-07-31 17:58:10 UTC  

Have something that shows you on our side... in a melee shit gets confusing

2017-07-31 18:00:49 UTC  

Hopefully the police do their jobs and there won't be a melee

2017-07-31 18:01:18 UTC  

There will be lots of black on black on our side being TWPs colors are black on black I think same with NSM

2017-07-31 18:02:33 UTC  

The whole thing is going to be a powder keg, it'll turn into a shit show if a melee breaks out

2017-07-31 18:03:08 UTC  

Hope for the best prepare for the worst I guess

2017-07-31 18:14:44 UTC  

There will be melees

2017-07-31 18:14:51 UTC  

Mark my words

2017-07-31 18:15:50 UTC  

If you are unable to tell the difference between TWP/NSM and AntiFa because they are wearing black you should just BLEEP yourself

2017-07-31 18:18:14 UTC  

like everything else.... hope the best. Prepare for the worst

2017-07-31 22:08:17 UTC  

Looks like our SC SBC will be going with red polos

2017-07-31 22:46:44 UTC  

@Hand Banana anhero?

2017-08-01 14:28:11 UTC  

You know what would go real well with a white polo?

2017-08-01 14:28:15 UTC  

A pith helmet

2017-08-01 15:30:00 UTC  

Those bump inserts are so you dont hit your head on a crawlspace

2017-08-01 15:30:09 UTC  

They won't stop a brick or a bottle or a bikelock

2017-08-01 17:11:28 UTC  

Get a kevlar pasgt. They can be had for $50 on eBay and they make riot face shields that attach to them

2017-08-01 17:11:42 UTC  

Kurt V posted a great doc on them

2017-08-01 17:19:15 UTC  

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.

2017-08-01 17:19:29 UTC  

Only 14 bucks

2017-08-01 17:49:18 UTC  

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.

2017-08-01 20:24:44 UTC  

What did ya'll reinforce the shield edges with?

2017-08-01 20:26:39 UTC  

Looks like angle iron

2017-08-01 20:27:34 UTC  

I should bring my sabre

2017-08-01 21:00:52 UTC  

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

2017-08-01 21:08:43 UTC  

What they said

2017-08-01 21:08:59 UTC  

About $40 worth of material. 15 without the brackets

2017-08-01 21:10:18 UTC  

I added the eyelets on top of the sides to mount a sling so it can be carried hands free when not engaged

2017-08-01 21:17:20 UTC  

An angled sling would be better

2017-08-01 21:17:31 UTC  

Carrying it like that it will flop around and be a pain in the ass

2017-08-01 21:23:08 UTC  

I think you are right... that's the prototype. Was thinking one more attachment point for a 3 point style sling

2017-08-01 21:25:30 UTC  

I am right

2017-08-01 21:25:37 UTC  

I do a lot of nerdy larp shit wit hshields
