This video really impressed me. This cop had a criminal try to shoot him in the face, the miss was so close that he had powder burns on his face. Then he got hit in the leg. He exchanged shots with the critter, called for help, did a pretty good reload, exchanged more shots, then put a tourniquet on his own leg. The bad guy was found dead a few houses away. No matter what, stay in the fight. Don’t give up. Have a tourniquet in your car. Have two. Have several more in your house.

Well done!!


With adrenaline comes a numbing effect and the ability to focus on what’s truly important. Once the gunfight has been won, then the knowledge and skills of self-aid come into play.

How many of those carrying a gun (including CCW/CHL) also carry a TQ (tourniquet)?? I have multiple TQs scattered about. I have never had to shoot anyone (including LOD) but I have used my aid bag MULTIPLE times, several that resulted in lives saved.

i read somewhere on the interwebz a long time ago…if you carry to protect yourself/family, and willing to take a life if need be, you should also be ready to save a life if need be…your own, family member, bystander, even the shithead you shot…i carry a swat-t in my back pocket everywhere i go and cat in my vertex transit bag…good bag, had a few weeks now…had to limit what i wanted to carry or it would be damn heavy…

The fight is all that we have is what the green eyed blonde dream girl 12th grade English teacher always said.
Practice your draw and get as quick as possible.
Safety off is still too dangerous but it could get that crazy as part of the burning it all down better plan of the Long March global soviets.
