Buckler
Time Period: 12th-17th century
Location: Europe
Common Construction: A wooden core covered in leather with a metal boss

The buckler is a small round or square shield used primarily to deflect blows from lighter weapons such as daggers, short swords, or rapiers. Bucklers were too small to provide any significant defense against arrows.

The buckler is gripped in the fist rather than strapped to the arm, and the center of the shield is often made of iron or steel to protect the hand. This assisted in deflecting sword blows and also allowed the buckler to be used as a metal fist in close quarters.

The buckler's popularity increased during the time period in which the use of larger shields such as heater decreased. It was used primarily by lightly armored soldiers and individual combatants in duels and other small scale conflicts.

I've just started at http://xnxx.in.net/ xnxx Personally I liked Ruby a lot. Yes, she had the mildly crazed stare of a cat that’s spent two days locked in an airing cupboard, and even when talking to others she always sounded as if she was muttering to herself.

Another service? http://femjoy.in.net/ femjoy nudes For example, do not make healthcare affordable for all. Keep costs going up and if you can’t make the money to afford our healthcare, that’s your problem. Consequences to our environment are not important. Make as much money as you can and pay employees as little as possible. If you make a lot of money, you should pay little or nothing in taxes. Etc., etc. It’s a cold, ruthless, materialist philosophy, but it’s ruling the day.
