    Ya, forgot about that. My half homie is more like a full homie due to all the shield work, it's just natural now.

    I should have signed up for shield duty.... then my left forearm would be as large as my right after a deployment ;)

    Seriously though, while we have shields, I have noticed less tendency to field them (for my agency) on operations as we have taken a speed or protection approach. Our sister unit in the neighboring agency still fields them plus probably 20+ lbs more other kit than we do.

    A stab to the taint beats most of the mystical bullshit, most of the time

    I only used them on approach and initial entry on a lower level or for stairs going up. other than that we spread out too much (by 2s) and too fast for them to be effective for anything else.

    We tend to bring them but not use them. We don't train sufficiently with them, and it's not like riding a bike. The easy button is to rely on speed, and excuses are manifold.
    And then there's the issue of actual effectiveness.

    But if you're rolling with the shield, have a laser.
