Medicine Under Fire

Lone Star Medics – Medicine X

Medicine XI’ve taken a grab bag of Tac classes and pretty much all of them were primarily about putting holes in bad guys, so I got to thinking diversifying a little bit with a medic class would be a good idea. No one really likes to think about themselves or their buddies getting seriously injured, but when the time comes, wishing it away is not going to do a lot of good. Thus getting a least some sort of basic medical education can go a long way which will be helpful outside of tactical situations as well. Having first met up with Lone Star Medics at Shotshow, I jumped at the offer to check out one of their classes this summer. Although I’m decent with a gun, my medical skill didn’t go too far past Band-Aids and fortunately the 2 day Medicine-X class fits that skill level quite well.

Ready for your range bag or that extra space you have on your chest rig.
You never know when an accident will happen, working and training around firearms without a dedicated first aid kit is foolish, and could cost the lives of you, or your fellow shooters. Our staff of combat veterans worked hard to select the contents of this kit with the warfighter in mind, but it is also applicable to a short visit to the local range.
