Question Shield Lore

Advertise Here

I finally got around to getting a shield, partially inspired by you-know-what.... I was wondering if any of you have any tips for using them-- maybe even something you've learned from experience using them for self-defense during a protest, or on riot control duty.

The only things I thought of so far is that you should be careful to keep the top edge out of your eyes, and I guess also, keep the bottom edge from banging your knees.

I just got one of the small, round, cheap transparent ones. I'm at any age where everything on my body feels a little more creaky than I'd like, so I figured the best bet would really be to get a smaller, lighter shield first.

One possible app I was thinking of for them is if I get into the situation where I want to do some last-minute shopping, but the store looks a little sketchy. Might be smart to wear the shield in there.

Don't really expect I'll have to do the 28 Days Later thing where I'll have to open the front door of my home for anybody, and need the shield because of zombies that are on their tail. But as I'm fond of saying, who knows what it'll be like.....
