Alright, I see there are plenty of people here with are quite versed in medical procedures, which is great. There are some basic fundamental differences on the order of steps you take between regular medicine, and medicine where your life is in danger. I thought this thread could cover some of the d...
Funny you mention the tape. Sometimes it's hard for me to get from supply. They've been running out of tape, so I've been having to be way more frugal with it. I'll have to walk on over tomorrow and see if they have any in. I have used duct tape more than once though. It works just fine. (also every...
Dang man! That thing is huge..where do you keep all YOUR stuff at..or is this an addon bag you have to carry with you? I keep the rest of my stuff in my ruck sack, which stays in my gun truck. If we had to dismount for any real distance I would have to carry both. For training though I've never car...

Also, been out on mission the last week so the list doesnt match ...

I'm assuming military vehicles are out of the question here. I'd take a big track veicle with a fun loader on it. Nothing is getting past that shovel, and the tracks will chew up Zach if he tries to come from the side. Assuming you dont have to back up you are good then, cause it'll roll faster than...

Having extra bottles that you can use to move out with and store water is never a bad idea. There are plenty of other uses that the bottles can serve as well. Cap rings are superb for locking in imporvised tourniquets. Also, putting an empy bottle over the barral of your weapon will silence the shot...
