Long time member; could use some help.

Greetings; My name is Jonathan, I have been around these forums for a while but have been inactive for a few years. I got tired of Connecticut stomping on our gun rights [there is no fucking way they are putting me on a list just for owning an AR] so I decided to pick up and move away from my family...

I find I get the best highs and lows w/ breath sounds using the master cardiology. I can also hear the sligh...

Re: Fire piston

I have one. Works ok with the fungus, even better with char paper and dryer lint. Mine is made of polished buffalo horn, inlaid with ivory and has brass for the compression tube. It’s about 5 inches long. The only downside is that the end is more of a hook which is great for fungus, but a PITA with ...

New Flashlights (Edit: Review Posted)

I have said it before and will publicly admit it again; I'm a flashlight whore. I have done the surefire thing, loved the light, and lost the light. After that I decided never to buy another surefire. Why? With surefire, what you pay does not = what you get. They are great lights but overpriced. Whi...

Re: 2008 Hemostatics Study

All very good advise, although only the first half of this statement is true: QuikClot's hemostatic effect is an exothermic reaction, and causes burning of the tissue. In a situation where you need to use it, this is probably acceptable. While QuikClot is indeed exothermic, only the original formul...
