Update to the Basic Gunshot Wound Kit

A while back I put up a post on what’s needed for a basic gunshot wound kit. That post came about because of my strong belief that folks who shoot regularly need to have one of these in their range bag, as well as the training on how to use them. My kit includes the [...]

Replacement Chest Seals for the Basic Gunshot Wound Kit

A couple of weeks ago I briefly mentioned that the Hyfin Chest Seals in my basic gunshot wound kits were expiring. I have one in each car

Now, what I orginally bought were these. While I was searching for replacements, I came across these and thought “Hey, there’s two in a pack for the same [...]

Keep Calm and Carry One

No, carrying a firearm would not have helped in Boston yesterday. It wouldn’t have hurt, either, but that’s another thing entirely.

Two things that might have helped in the aftermath:

A Trauma Kit The training to use it

You can’t pick when these things happen.

I had to do it

Deterrence is not prevention

Yesterday, the President said this:

We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change. We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law—no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of [...]

I think my AR just jumped the shark

In the winter of 2005-2006 I bought a Rock River AR, used, for about $700 from a dealer at a show. I’d always wanted one for two reasons: I spent about 15 minutes in the Army, so I trained on the M16 and Democrats had told me ARs were evil.

Now, at the time, I [...]

Accident at the local range

Yesterday a 13 year old boy was accidentally shot at what we like to call “The Wild West Range” since it’s the only unsupervised public range in the area. I’d like to say I’m shocked by this, but it’s surprising to exactly no one who’s ever been out there. Because there are no RSOs, no [...]

The Freight Train

That’s what I got. And yes, it’s got baby seal skin seats.

2002 Ford Excursion Limited Ultimate. I went with a V10 instead of a diesel, because for the extra $7-10,000 a diesel was going to cost me, I decided I’d just buy a commuter car.

This one gets 15mpg on the highway, 12 [...]

I lol’d

That’s some creativity right there.

How does “non-flammable gasoline” work?

That’s what Extra Fuel claims to be. For emergencies.

And by “emergency” they mean “your failure to plan or pay any attention whatsoever to the fuel gauge.”

My Jeep requires 100% gasoline, so I have to actually plan out my fuel trips. That means I get nervous when I dip below 1/4 tank. I guess [...]
