More on blowout kits

762Rifleman made a comment on the speed bags post, and I felt it needed to be bumped up. Not for it’s comment on the speed bag, but on blowout kits.

Go and read. It is my observation that we spend too much time on gear and not enough on skills, so go get some trauma training as well. A Red Cross class on first aid would be a good start, but a poor end.

If/when we get into a big throw-down, you’re gonna need these skills.

    You’re right. Skills are important. Basic and intermediate first aid can save lives. THe Army’s combat lifesaver program is great. The necessary manuals are available online, free of charge. Every militiaman should know those skills.

    Everyone wnats to be a ninja. Everyone wants to be the sniper, or on point, or in a stack..

    No one wants to be the medic. Fine. Then everyone has to be a medic.

    Just my $.02.

    Thanks for the bump.

    My education regarding came from my emergency prep course taught by some local National Guardsmen, and was refined by by nursing school experience, especially, medical surgical nursing course. I am thinking that things will change with further education.

    Mindset. Skill-set. Tool-set.
