For those of us who don't have that luxury...

Is there any federal law stating that an employer would HAVE to let you off work (even it it's without pay) for the duration of a mandatory quarantine? How about a voluntary quarantine?

Re: Ammunition stockpiling: questions re: quality and quant

What quality of ammunition do you stockpile? And in what quantity? I figured most people stocked piles of whatever crap ammo they could get their hands on cheaply for range work and general blastin' purposes, then had a secondary stock of SHTF ammo (i.e., higher cost, higher quality, higher perform...

Re: Long term firearms cleaning preparations

Typical home user small kits are not likely to last over a long term scenario Well, this is my semi hang-up on this discussion. Is the concern that a person is going to wear out or break a boresnake, flexible cleaning rod (the Otis family of cleaning supplies are indeed awesome), or a multi-piece o...

Re: Another Police Shooting in St. Louis Triggers New Protes

I don't believe the report which is why I think there should be an independent investigation of the incident. Any police department outside of St. Louis Co this would probably be good enough but they've cultivated such a negative reputation that I cannot take them at their word. So while you say fa...

Re: Long term firearms cleaning preparations

Stuff about shoestrings Instead of stuffing shoestrings into guns... Buy a boresnake. Or a flexible cleaning rod. Or use any of literally dozens of items purposefully designed to clean a gun barrel . Use the shoestrings for something they were designed for... Like tieing your shoes! :clap:

Re: cauterization, viable technique?

Tourniquets had long been vilified in civilian EMS, but lessons from their liberal use in the recent Iraq/Afghanistan wars have shown just how viable they are: a TQ is really NOT automatically a choice between life and limb. This knowledge has been spilling over into civilian EMS, albeit slowly. Th...

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

So.... What handguns have a slide release that = huge? I've got an aftermarket slide release and extended magazine release on my G19. It doesn't make them huge, just nubs them out a bit more. I still find myself doing overhand rack when doing any kind of non admin firing. Also, I've noticed that som...

Re: Looking for Help RE: Range Level FAK

I'm not totally surprised at the ER response. Emergency rooms aren't really in the 'first aid' business. They are in the 'definitive care' (or close to it) business. Nurses and doctors working there might not even know how to do field level trauma care. That isn't a bust on them, it's just a fact. T...

Re: Looking for Help RE: Range Level FAK

Are izzy bandages/pressure dressings worth having in this scenario? Or are basic trauma pads and tape more simple and equally effective over a 20 minute span? Izzy's are great, they are basically an ace wrap with a gauze pad built in. Cheap, too. They do play the same roll as the pads and tap, thou...

Re: Looking for Help RE: Range Level FAK

A good ready-made TQ will take care of major extremity bleeds, a couple of 5 x 9 gauze pads and a roll of 4" gauze and 2" medical tape will take care of extremity wounds that are NOT major bleeds. Chest/torso shots can be addressed with 1 or 2 trauma dressings (basically large gauze pads) and severa...
