Almost every lethal defense class I've been to has at least touched on being able/ready to render medical aide to yourself or a comrade in the event of a violent attack or accident in the home or on the range.
Because one must not only wait for EMS to arrive on scene but also wait for the scene to be secured before EMS can go in, even if they are on top of their game and can respond in less than five minutes, for someone who is bleeding to death it may not be enough time if you don't have the skills/supplies to at least control the wound until help arrives.
Tourniquet, pressure bandages, QuikClot and the knowledge to use them, I think, are a good bare minimum for anyone with a gun in their home or on their person.
Now, I will admit that I have never been to a combat medicine course. It's on my list. I am also hoping to go for my EMT certification this spring after Baby B is born. I have, however, seen these items and more in action, demonstrated and am certain that I could use them effectively in the moment of need. I also have enough understanding where I could use other improvised items like tampons, sanitary napkins, plastic bags, belts, etc, if need be.
I'm curious to see how many people here have the tools (in their home, range bag, car or on body) and the knowledge to use them if need be.
If you do have the equipment, what do you have (what brand/type of tourniquet, clotting agent, bandages, etc)? How much of it do you have (2 of x, 3 or y, etc)? And where do you keep it (home, car, range bag) or how do you carry it (bag, pocket)?
Have you been to any combat medicine or trauma classes? What is your experience with using those tools?
