“Inspect What You Expect:” Pre-Deployment Checks and Inspections

Admit it, people like us tend to be “tactical” hoarders. But if you want your gear to actually be functional when the time comes that you need to use it, you have to put hands on it from time to time. Make sure your screws are thread locked, check your zero on your optics, pack enough water and socks, etcetera. Like any TacTangents episode it’s not just about your gear. This also has a lot to do with things like leadership, personal responsibility, and risk management.

“Bright Lights and Cold Steel:” An Intro to Tactical Combat Casualty Care and Pre Hospital Trauma Medicine

Learning about emergency medical care is more complicated than knowing how to slap on a tourniquet and a chest seal. Understanding the importance of getting your patient to a trauma center (“Bright lights and cold steel”) is a good first step in establishing priorities of work when minutes and seconds matter to a person who is seriously wounded. This episode is a starting point to help steer your training and treatment philosophy for trauma medicine. Listen now to learn more.

    Hi Jim,
    I read your piece in the NOV/DEC 2019 issue of CONCEALED CARRY MAGAZINE. Couldn’t agree with you more on all of the points that you made on both sides of the argument. I was born in NYC, of immigrant Cuban parents who were fleeing Communism, and treasure my GOD given rights under the US Constitution. My parents had personal stories of the actions of a tyrannical government!
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
    As a life-long NJ resident and lawful gun owner since 1990, I have long-since given up on the possibility that I would ever be granted a NJ concealed carry permit.
    Look forward to the day when I escape this progressive, liberal state and move to a state that respects gun rights & the 2nd Amendment!!

    I enjoyed your article in volume 17, issue 4. The points you made were well thought out. I would like to see an article that us in the gun community could actually study. Actual statistics of mass shootings and every day shootings that occure and all the laws that already don’t stop these tragic events. It would be nice to have all that information in my head the next time someone says we need more gun control.
    Thank you. Please keep me anonymous.
