Texas Law Shield: First Aid FOR Gunshot Wounds COURSE
« on: October 13, 2017, 02:29:36 PM »
For any non-members (of Texas Law Shield), or members that didn't get/read the email, Texas Law Shield is hosting courses for gunshot wound first aid.

I will be going to the one at the Redneck Country Club (Michael Berry's bar/venue in SW Houston/Stafford) Tuesday the 17th.

More than two years in the making, U.S. Law Shield has teamed up with Dr. Rick Hammesfahr, M.D. to develop a first-of-its-kind guidebook and course for everyday people to be able to save lives. While the book will be available in December,  we couldn’t wait to get this information to you. We are launching a limited series of events to kick this off and we want you to be one of the first to get this lifesaving information! Reserve your spot now and register below.

I think their first rule is “Don’t get shot”.

haven't really had a requirement to use that sort of training, even with 2 tours in VN - always "someone" more qualified than I to take care of those types of wounds

and.....in the years I've got left I'm hoping that remains the case - but.....go for it (but.....why ?)

Seriously?
Much like the guns we (most of us anyways) carry, better to have and not need, than to need and not have.
I hope to never need to utilize knowledge to keep someone alive after a gunshot until paramedics arrive, but would sure like to be capable of doing so if ever needed.

For 25 years, in a prior life, I was required to attend an annual two week training refresher course. Report writing, first aid, weapons qualification, new legislation, laws and regulations, etc. First aid class was partially a goof off day. CPR and how to control bleeding was taught ad nauseam. Nothing in that class changed over the years and for most of us it was boring and we just went through the motions.
After my father in law passed my mother in law came to live with us. I was in that annual CPR class when the instructor mentioned something about paying attention if you have an elderly person living with you. So I did. Yup, mom in law had a heart attack six weeks later. I did CPR for 15 minutes. FD didn't have GPS back then and got lost. She lived for another two years.
About a year later I was on my way to work when I saw a College Station police car running with red lights and siren go through a traffic light and T bone a young man driving a POS Yugo pulling out of a gas station. I was stopped in the southbound lane and it happened in the northbound lane not 15 away. There was no hope for the young man but the police officer was bleeding out from a femoral injury in his right leg. He was lucky a trauma surgeon was in the car behind me with his bag. We were able to stem the bleeding before EMS arrived.
I realize the two incidents above aren't GSW related but I just believe in being prepared. For gun shot and puncture wounds my vehicle and home first aid kits contain quick clot, compression and crepe bandages and a couple of Tampax's.

No plans to be an EMT, but I spend enough time on gun ranges, which coincidentally have a higher than average likelihood for a gunshot wound, and have loved ones that I would hate myself for not doing everything I could to save if they were ever shot for any reason.

This is a GREAT idea and everyone that can, SHOULD take it.

When I was in the Army in the 1980's,  they had extensive first aid. basically, we ALL had to be able to perform the same medical treatment as a trained medic.

Funny after 35 years,, I THANKFULLY dont have to use it, (  maybe 3 times since for car wrecks, ) , ,, but the knowledge and reaction is still there. The few times I needed it, it all came back instantly.
We also had a refresher course every year at work. And once I got in the class, It all would come back and I seemed to know more than the teacher, as we had that combat medic training for severe wounds..

You NEVER know that,  God forbid, it be a loved one that needs life saving skills from a freak accident or car accident.

This is a good thing to know folks. If you can,, take it.  :thumbsup1:

Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".

Thanks for the heads up.  Redneck Country Club for the win.  I actually put together a trauma kit after a 20 minute discussion at a previous Texas Law Shield event I attended.  So, I figure I can only gain confidence/experience that will help if I ever need to deploy the kit.

IMO, it is about being a responsible range citizen.

New class dates are available at https://uslawshield.com/land/live-course/
I'm hoping to try to make either:

December 6, 6-9pm Boyert Shooting Center Katy, TX
December 12, 6-9pm Spring Guns and Ammo Spring, TX

Either will be tough though, so I may need to hold out for a weekend class.

OMFGBBQ I was going to post this exact thing until SATX beat me to it right as I clicked "reply".

San Antonio is one of the biggest cities in Texas and in fact even the entire friggin' nation. How in the HELL did a relative one-cow town like Temple get a frickin' tour date and WE didn't!? This is bulls***!!

I would have made plans to attend, because I too believe in all forms of disaster readiness particularly since I hope to start training to become an EMT in January, but, looks like I'll be missing out now for sure.

(I've been fortunate enough to not have to use CPR yet, but I HAVE had to make use of the Heimlich maneuver twice now to good effect.)

Not sure how they are choosing locations, but I suspect it is based on having a range or facility willing to host it.
I'm sure even San Antonio will eventually have a host for the course.

I think this is a good idea for anyone who shoots regularly.  Range "accidents" do happen.  The victim does not have to be in a crime situation.   

But some of the posts on here make me think there are those that would require a background check and 3 day wait to buy a box of band-aids.
A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the health of the nation, the right of the people to keep an eat cereal shall not be infringed.  Now who gets the ceral, the breakfast or the people?
Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.
