The Barrier Shield folks finally have their own website, aptly named BarrierShield.com, having previously only lived on reseller ALD Company's web catalog for some time.
This thing is reminiscent of medieval bucklers, albeit a cross-cultural meld with the right-angle tonfa handle. I wrote an About.com article on the tonfa as a police weapon, and this shield seems like a logical extension of that idea.
Now they should make it out of ballistic polycarbonate, so that it can withstand firearms too.
And how about making it into a clipboard, so you have it with you all the time? Might have to make that obvious enable-striking handle a bit more public-friendly, though.Posted by jameshom at April 14, 2006 01:00 PM | TrackBack
