I have recently started helping out a friend with a riot shield project, trying to make it field user friendly. ::)

He was able to show me the almost finished shield, and I must say it is looking pretty bad ass. I started a ghillie blanket to attach to the shield to make it concealed in a woodland environment. While I will not be using it, I thought it would be cool to make it "airsoft game effective" in a outdoor environment.

I will be posting some pics of the blanket soon, as well as some riot shield shots on friday.

I know some of you are CQBer's, and would love to see some shields of your own as well.
This is an attempt to make a shield outdoor user friendly, something the last shield failed at....Too small and stuck out like a sore thumb, making flanking the shield operator an easy tactic.

Hope to see that.
Things I always wanted to do.
Get a bunch of friends with riot shields to do this.
Make a gun port in the middle so you can point a gun barrel out but bullets can come in
So here we go link.

Of course everyone would be crouching to cover our leg.
That would cost A LOT of money in perspex and stripper heaters. (The yolks used to bend acrylic)

Well, a buddy of mine actually 'finished' his riot shield, but he went off to the NG before we could use it in-game. He actually built it for his senior project in Woodshop. Basically, its a large front piece with two pieces on the side at an angle \__/ of plywood?, then he was going to cover it all in Masonite panels. He got the panels cut to size, he just never glued them on.
I'll see if I can get it from his brother for a photo shoot. Riot shields don't have to be clear plastic you know! Of course, I have no clue if it will work, as we've never tested it.

I made one of cardboard (3 layers, pretty strong) and about 5 layers of duct tape. I also made a little combat vest to use with it, using the same methods (CB and Duct Tape). It even comes with a holster! Unfortunately, it doesn't stand up to well against a baseball bat...

Sorry about the quality, these are taken with a piece of crap Xbox LIVE vision camera (NOO Idea what happened to the digital camera).


This is both, fun to just run around in.


This is just the shield, you can see the bat damage a bit here. You can't see it in this pic, but there is a sheet of plexiglas running down the inside, keeps it bulletproof.


And now the vest. Pretty simple, only took about 90 mins to make. Has a pretty well universal holster in it, and a pocket for dead rags or whatever you feel like putting in there.

I used these once just as a distraction/lure, and it worked pretty well. Since my gun lacks in range, I need to get close, and this worked to divert their attention for those few vital seconds to get off a couple shots.

Nice i got another kind of design but not like a usual riot shield. It will be four body lengths and it will have two small squares cut out. It will be wood with something see through so the holder can see. Then the two cut out squares are for two other people to rest their barrels and shoot. Now that is the design I'm thinking of. But it will take 6 pieces of plywood. There will be a lockable swinging door behind the shooters and holder. The locks are on the inside so its easily accessible. :) :) :)
Tell me what you think. Sorry if there is any grammar issues. Might even make it double layered.
