The thread about reacting to the bad guy after you have been shot got me thinking about a conversation on another forum.
While we are gun guys and although it is a lot of fun to get training in the defensive use of a handgun, we are probably more likely to need first aid training than we are to actually have to shoot a bad guy.
That's just my gut feeling. I don't have any statistics to support that belief, I just feel that way.
So with that in mind, how many of you get regular first aid training?
This question is more for the citizen than for the LEO or EMT guys who probably are required to know a certain level of first aid.
I am trying to get signed up for a first aid/CPR class as soon as I can.
The other related thought came to me after I watched our computer consultant pull from a fanny pack, the necessary equipment: flash drives, tools, etc needed to do his job.
Does anyone carry any basic first aid stuff with them?
I thought a fanny pack with certain basic stuff for first aid/trauma aid would be a nice thing to have with me (after I learn what the heck to do with it).
Any comments? Questions? Snide Remarks?
