Re: Ever stitch yourself up? Think you could?

Yes there is a special stapler.

And yes there is a down side to non-medical grade superglue , it leaches cyanide that medical grade (trade name"DermaBond"), which is one molecule different does not.

FYI: I use regular superglue on myself but no one else.

Re: Ever stitch yourself up? Think you could?

I have done it, more out of morbid curiosity. Sutures aren't magic, anything that will keep a wound closed and approximated will work which is why we use staples. I actually get very good results with super glue and duct tape steri-strips. I only suture when there is a lack of intelligence or maturi...

Mr. BSR...I see in your Sig Line something called a "Lobo"...looks like a Cold Steel Shovel with a really long haft. More info? Just curious. In case no one gets back to you soon "Lobo" is short for "Lobotomizer". It is a fictitional weapon from a series of books called World War Z. http://zombiehu...

Re: The Crovel EXTREME...Reviewing the beast!

I think a survival spear might get a bunch of use within the imagination of the owner but actual field use? Have you ever hafted anything on a stick? A person could just carry around a smaller PSK with a spear point and should for some bizarre reason require a spear simply make it in the field. Tha...

Re: Airflow efficacy of ballpoint pen tubes as surgical airw

I don't know that anyone is advocating this procedure. I put up the intial post because many people seem to think that using a pen as an emergency airway is a viable option, which it is not. For those with enough medical training to perform this procedure: You already know how unlikely it is that y...

Re: Airflow efficacy of ballpoint pen tubes as surgical airw

Even a 14 is super tiny to breathe through. And also if doing it properly your have to use a BVM for pressure or a special 100% o2 high pressure device. " A pen would work if ya carried one with a large enough cavity. Most have a tapered attached end. The key in making it work is a high pressure de...

I still don't see the point of including the zombies... You're introducing a threat that the survivors have no way of defending themselves from. The point is to train these people to be prepared for an emergency, so when the course is complete, they'll know what they need to do to be prepared - equ...
