While waiting for the shotgun class to begin, I saw this.

$109 on the left and $119 on the right.

I am guessing if you don’t feel like building your “Oh Sh*t!” kit or are in a hurry to have something available, you can go with one of these two options.

Notice it does not come with tourniquet, you must supply your own. the range had a crate full of them right under the kits.

  1. Ya’all likely know this, but there are articles online, some pretty reasonable from a know-your-stuff perspective, about this sort of thing.

    Should you desire to “roll your own”, Aesop at Raconteur Report, and I at Musings of a Stretcher Ape, have discussions of exemplar kits. Reasonable starting point.

    Or, should one be a “yuppie pepper” as Bison Pepper might term it, these sorts of kits might be plausible starting points.

    1. I look at it as a better-than-nothing for someone new to the sport, but who recognizes having something in the range bag isn’t a bad idea.
      On the other hand, for someone buying their first gun, this could easily be 1/3 – 1/4 of the cost of the gun. So not likely to be an impulse purchase.

    2. Could you post a pointer to your exemplar kit discussion? I checked your website, or tried to, but every time I got to the search bar at the bottom, “infinite scroll” kicked in and moved it below more posts. (Might be because I’m on a tablet.). Thanks!

  2. Certainly better than nothing. But unfortunately a lot of people think that by waving their credit card around they’ve solved a problem. Without proper training and often adequate practice something like this is almost
    useless if you REALLY need it. Because when you REALLY need it there won’t be time to read the package and
    try to figure out how to use it. I cannot say this often enough or loudly enough. Get PROPER training and if at
    all possible hands on experience dealing with REAL trauma. Nothing beats real world experience in ER/Trauma
    medical care.

  3. It’s nice that they offer these at the range. At least something like this is available as a starter kit, with TQs also available.
    Many years ago, my roommate and I were at the local outdoor range when one yahoo put a .32 ACP through the palm of his hand when the range was supposed to be cold. After a lot of people picked themselves up off the deck, my roommate, who happened to be a Firefighter/EMT ran and got his trauma bag out of our car and dressed the guy up well enough for his buddy to take him to the hospital down the road. While the dressing was being applied to his hand, the dope in question got an earful from the rangemaster, many disapproving looks from the other shooters on the line and not a few snickers from his buddy about what an idiot he was.
    It was the first time I had ever seen a gunshot wound in person, and though it was “Only a .32”, I started carrying a Kit like this that my roommate helped me put together. He also got me lined up with a local instructor who showed me how to use everything properly.
    Training is as important as having the right tools.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
