Re: Axe for survival

Outland Equipment? I believe ? Their 19" Axe, their big baby. That weapon and a knife from Storm Crow ? And you can do just about anything. Strap that axe on your back, use some tomahawk techniques when it's close quarters, and of course , you can do the wood processing.

Re: Training Opportunity

The Tactical Practical's sound like it was more of a technical rescue ? If it was Tech Rescue, I 'll bet you know the gear and threat are extremely different.

Re: Cold pack activating itself

Why is that essential again? The cold pack?............If there's a possible ankle sprain, ideally, you want someone to self-ambulate and keep their boot on till the trail head, I mean if it's a one day hike. It's safer for the team and them if they can walk out with a walking stick. If you have to ...

Re: Can someone explain this style of blade to me?

I got a knife from Storm Crow. It's been to places on the planet you couldn't imagine. Met the Russian Spetsnaz on the Ukrainian Contact line. Met the Tauregs in the Sahara.......I showed it to my grandson and told him "this is yours, and when you show me your ready, you can take this".

Re: Plate Carrier

Agree with these guys. But you say that the plates say, that they will stop 7.62X63 ? and they are military ? Green or black with SAPI on them? I've only seen X39, or X54, or X51..........when you hold them, is there a black like-rubber edge to them? I've just never seen any plates that say they'll ...

Re: First aid kit for a dog?

Battery powered clippers that are quiet, a basket muzzle so the dog can pant. Learn front leg access and external jugulars. Then, some telazol, dipravan, .9NS and some catheters with a drip set. Learn a modified Robert Jones dressing...Don't even attempt to touch the dog without the owner or handler...

Re: Where can I buy Lidocaine online?

Whoops, your right. My apologies, If your looking for an anal-rectal rub or "aspercreme" go for it. If your looking for a local anesthetic of a medical grade level, in the USA, anything possibly used with a needle at 0.5-1%, your on the wrong site.

Re: Allanah's Med Bag V1

Actually, you don't need a blood pressure cuff in your first line. Vitals signs are done in your secondary survey. Your first line should be for BLS......and dude, go off of signs and symptoms of the patient, don't count on a BP.
