The Riggs Shield can save your life.
You have a non-lethal option to protect yourself. One that can be an equalizer or strength multiplier. Protect yourself from carjackings, home invasions, and domestic abuse without the fear that children could find this and harm themselves or others.
The Riggs Shield is compact and portable enough to keep in your home, office, car, camper, motorcycle or backpack. Originally designed for law enforcement by law enforcement, this modified version is now available to civilians.
The civilian self-defense shield is a non-lethal NIJ Shot Level IIIa and Stab Level III ballistic shield that can absorb up to .44 Magnum 240 grain pistol rounds. Use it to block punches, clubs, and stabs. It will defend against a stun gun or Taser because it doesn't conduct electricity. This shield is the same patented Riggs Shield designed for law enforcement without the door mount which was designed to fit patrol cars.
In the photo above, we shot the shield 20 times - 5 times each with .44 Mag, .45 auto, 9mm and .38 spec. All three photos shown above are of the same shield sandwiched together. Note the side view to see how the rounds were captured in the shield to avoid ricocheting off at by-standers. The right photo shows there was no penetration toward the side of the user.
If you block a punch from a suspect with this shield, they may injure themselves while you feel very little impact from the force of the hit. And if you choose to carry a weapon, this non-lethal civilian self-defense shield is designed to block with your left arm and leave your right arm free to protect yourself.
The handle has a Picatinny equipment rail to attach a flashlight (light is not included). There is an optional D-ring to hook to a sling or belt, or hang onto a hook for storage. Unlike body armor that has a limited shelf life and should be replaced after 5 years, this shield is made from safe room composite materials that stand up to hurricanes and terrorist attacks and has no 5-year end of life concern like other shields.
Includes a free written online training program developed by former law enforcement who is also a martial arts trainer.
