    Looks like a real good class. I have a trauma kit I carry with me everywhere; combat tourniquet, 4" & 6" Israeli bandages, combat gauze, medical gloves etc. I think it's a good idea for any gun owner to learn how to treat trauma, especially those who CCW. The trauma you may be treating could very well be your own.

    PS. In the real world when applying a tourniquet, there's no BS-ing the patient. "This is really going to hurt!" LOL

    Any MA Continuing Education hours approved for EMT's? Looks like great course content. If not, any other upcoming classes with hours for EMT's?

    Is the 18th too late? Got the day off work. NHCraigt and I are in. I just didn't want to put it on my CC until the next billing cycle if possible but it's not a deal breaker.
