    Nothing can replace gun safety courses with hands on instruction. If everyone would follow any one of the three safety rules at all times, accidents would be virtually nonexistent. Every accident is always without exception caused by a complete breakdown in all three categories. The system works when people learn it and practice it.

    I'd put the Israeli bandage in the kit before the combat gauze. A clotting agent needs something to keep it in place, pressed into the wound/artery.

    What would be wonderful is if the little gauze that's bundled inside the Israeli bandage had a clotting agent in it. That way you could skip the combat gauze and just carry the Israeli bandage.

    Thats a very good basic kit. Go to a FREE Stop the Bleed training session. Its a nationwide program. You can find a local presentation through google.
    The truth can only offend those who live a lie.

    The standard Israeli does not have removable gauze for wound packing, just a non-adherent pad. The newer T3 varient does. It's an interesting product that combines several things in one package. https://persysmedical.com/products/h...ol/t3-bandage/

    The T3 looks interesting. Might have to get one and see how it compares size-wise.

    This is my next move also. I watched a video by Karl Erickson, Tactical Rifleman, who has medical training and experience. He made a big point of buying a tourniquet made in North America and not some cheap crap made in China for airsoft appearance purposes. So I intend to put together a kit from my local military surplus company.

    Yea that's the one I'm talking about. Would be awesome if the gauze had a clotting agent.

    Like a gun, no good without training.
