There is no reason not to carry a basic trauma medkit as part of your EDC gear. It’s not just for gun shot wounds. What if someone stabs your upper arm for trying to steal your purse? Let’s say you gotten into a car accident and somehow severed an artery, you have about 2-3 minutes before you bleed out and die. The ambulance is six minutes away which by then you would passed and die. Having a tourniquet handy and knowing how to quickly use it by closing that time gap is key to your survival. If you are able to stop the bleeding before the paramedics arrive you’re good to go. Unfortunately we can’t put tourniquet on our necks. Once at the hospital they’ll take it from there. I don’t rely on paramedics having a tourniquet, know how to quickly use it and reaching to me in time.
See what femoral artery bleedout looks like and notice it doesn’t take that long. *GRAPHIC* Continue reading “Your Everyday Carry Trauma Medkit” »
Been watching Designated Survivor since the beginning. Within the first 5 episodes I already noticed it is somewhat of a left wing show that tries to slowly push their agenda every now and then. For those who watch the show would know what I’ll be talking about. They presented a political left tone when it comes to the environment and Muslim immigration few episodes ago. Back in September, American Thinker also pointed out this TV show’s tone and possible goals, “Designated Survivor: Should it be designated as Democrat propaganda?” I looked the other way from their political view and focus on the fun part (main story line) which is finding out who and how deep the conspiracy goes that killed the President, Vice President, Speaker down to most of congress since the catastrophic attack of the Capital building occurred during the State of the Union.

For you fella ladies out there.
Thumbs up for this lady who decided not to be a victim. Learn how to use a knife to save yourself from being attack by a boogieman.

I had a colleague said he doesn’t need a gun or skills to protect himself from others. His comments were, “I always stay out of trouble, stay away from bad neighborhoods, mind my own business. If someone mugs me, I’ll just comply with them and give them my wallet.” Well, how naive and uninformed you are buddy. Criminals pick when and where, sometimes you can’t avoid them, you just have to be ready. Continue reading “Complying Doesn’t Mean You Will Be Safe” »
It’s seems to be a more frequent occurring that we hear people bringing up conversations about their physician having them fill out a questionnaire in regards to their health care plan asking about guns which has nothing to do with the subject whatsoever. The “Affordable Health Care Act” is over a 1000 pages to mask it’s dangerous doses of personal rights violations and gun control is one of the main bullet points.
At my state gun rights group (VCDL) monthly meeting, someone associated to the Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership gave us all attendees handouts with information on what steps you can take to deal with when your doctor asks you about your guns. I want to share it to as many people as I can. Feel free to pass along this valuable information.

If you need a small package without sacrificing much thermal performance due to a shorter barrel, the 7.62×39 is perfect for a SBR AK or an AK pistol. Unlike the lighter 22 cal (.223/5.56×45) which relies on high velocity for it’s devastating thermal ballistic results. There are some premium 5.56×45 loads that work great in shorter barrels such as the popular 14″ lengths but these loads are expensive and can be hard to find.
