    First Aid Kit in Range Bag?

    Anybody make it a habit of including a first-aid kit in their range bag?
    You know, just in case the unspeakable happens.
    If you do, what is in the kit?

    All the ranges I go to have first aid kits handy. They should probably get those AEDs because you are alot more likely to have a problem with your ticker than to have a gun injury of any kind on the range.

    Now whenever I'm out and about shooting or otherwise I have a first aid kit. Pretty typical stuff for basic first aid. If I get, or someone with me gets injured beyond that kit and what I know how to do with available materials, well they probably need a medi-vac.

    They should call it the Ritz Caliber. Seriously, sounds like a nice place!

    My truck is always a couple feet away, so no need for another kit.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I've got a small kit in my range bag, it's mostly band-aid type stuff and some basic antibiotic ointment. It's good for normal "oh crap," type mishaps like hammer bite or slicing a finger.

    My wife and I always keep a larger first aid kits in both our cars. We started with those $20-$30 Johnson & Johnson kits and added whatever else we thought might be practical: extra rolled gauze & gauze pads, large disinfectant/antibiotic cream, real scissors, hotel sewing kits, etc.. When my mother-in-law stepped in a hole (up to her thigh) while walking through an empty lot, it was good to have that instant cold pack and compression/ace bandages for her knee. We both carry ibuprofen and various analgesics with us all the time (I keep a small tylenol bottle in my front pocket filled with everything I can cram in there). That helped get her to the hospital ER - where they diagnosed torn cartilege.

    Mine resembles OPFOR's, but is only half-built. I won't get the other stuff until I'm properly trained to use a blow-out kit. As soon as I am, though, I plan to keep a blow-out kit in my range bag for those serious OS moments.

    I carry my kit in my trunk, which is a few yards away. Commercial trauma pack with Quik-clot, and new Quik-Clot gauze. Have a small med kit with the basic cut/burn/abrasion stuff.

    I keep a kit in my bag. You never know when you might get bit or something like that.

    I have used it twice this year on other shooters.
