I too am reevaluating my purchase places. Mostly on the criteria of their political philosophy. I won't spend money or advocate for money to be spent to a company that does not support a "make America great again" philosophy.

Found out a little more of their history, political beliefs, didn't jive with my own. The whole "everyone is entitled to everything" , cops are the bad guys, and openly supporting dissemination of the countries wealth without the workload, again a no no , and supporting trumps death, is a no go. Sorry.

Rescue Essentials is a fantastic source for supplies.

Use them regularly, highly recommended.

The other, of course, involves orcs."

Hello,

As a civilian contractor Rescue Essentials is my go to source of TC3 type medical supplies for the past 7 years. Just recently I placed a couple orders with them to replace expired items and upgrade to Gen 7 CAT tourniquets in my personal IFAK and MARCH PAWS (combat lifesaver kit) fanny pack. Everything arrive in under 14 days to my APO with the correct customs documentation.

Cheers,
W-W
To the last, I grapple with thee; From Hell's heart, I stab at thee; For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee.

I use rescue essentials when the exchange is in my favour.

A useful tip, if you're friendly with the staff at your ambulance station, find out who they purchase supplies through, i found a couple of sources that way
Vincent Tornado: 2013
Tropical Cyclone Ita: Category 5 landfall 2014
Tropical Cyclone Marcia: Category 5 landfall 2015
Tropical Cyclone Nathan: Category 3 landfall 2015
Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie: Category 4 landfall 2017

Another cowardly, hit and run attempt to slander a perfectly good company.

I amend my earlier comment, you're a piece of crap.

Maybe you could save it for PMs. You are responding to two month old comments and not providing useful commentary anyhow.

And try something other than the Kung Fu Monkey clichés. If you are a bookish 14, try some of the other stuff that isn't about money and orcs. Equality 7-2521 could get you back on track.

Gun shows have turned out to be a great source for me. Large volumes of USGI supplies get rotated out and despite the "expiration" dates a lot of the items are good to go.

For instance, the water purification tabs in the IFAKS actual expiration dates always seem to be good for one to two more years past the date on the kits.

Combat tourniquets, SAM splints, EMT shears, gauze and other non adhesive bandaging are always good.

Keep an eye out!

I've seen a good amount of 1st Aid stuff at local gun shows before, but I haven't been to a gun show in over a decade. Maybe longer. Once I saw the same aid bag that I carried when I was RA. Unfortunately, I did not have the man's money at the time. It was packed just like I received it.
