Only thing i found so far is steel 45's. I was thinking since it's metal it wouldn't be to hard to just cut a drum in 3 piece, 2 for the shields, and use the leftover material to make the shield taller, and flatten it out a little so there's more to hide behind.
The drum materials is designed to resist deforming or cracking. Shelf strength Plexiglas is not the same . Plexiglas can crack and splinter on impacts, i.e. falling on a rock, running into a wall. Steel is heavier and edges can be very sharp. Also if a person hit the edge they can be seriously injured. Yes any shield can cause injuries, but the risk can be reduced.
Well i found some nice flexible stuff, cause i kept rolling my sled and couldn't afford new windshields, so it just bends instead. Well i'll just file the sharp edges down and put something soft and rubbery over them. And well i think if someone is dumb enough to run into a shield, then it's their own fault. Unless someone was trying to hurt someone, but no one is going to stand for that, he'll be a multi-coloured canvas before he gets into his car to run away
I am 6'2", over200 lbs. 55 galleon is big enough. Just ask around for food grade drum.
Ya i've been looking around, not looking that great, it's a small town, so theres not too many places to look. Dump is next though...
And On the fairness issue, theres so many ways you can beat a shield, shoot his hand, shoot his legs, and if he's crouching behind it, shoot the window so he can't see, then flank him, and if he runs outta ammo he's probably done. 2 people can take a shield, but it depends if he has back up.
