@goblin Glad to hear it turned out well and that you’re OK.
Yep that is the name. Try this link New Skin Products. That will probably be your best bet for getting it in Ireland.
@hunter1916: Apologize for replying so late. My IP provided modem/router has been glitchy and had to order a new one and install.
@russ thanks russ i found some on ebay and ordered the spray version thanks for the info
How about a chainsaw? Anyone got some favorites or some good stories?
Unnh, Chainsaw?? Sheez, John that would take a trauma center to go along with the chainsaw.
@russ Wonderful Stuff’ Used it for years as a Mechanic, Another Prior to finding this neat stuff was (Bowler’s Thumb) Same Idea and Quality.
Let me say that I’m not a physician, surgeon, or psychiatrist.
I didn’t see this mentioned but I carry 3M Vetbond and steri-strips in my first aid kits. Since shooting is my hobby, I have a large range bag. Two external pockets are dedicated to the following items:
Adventure Medical Trauma Pak
Hyfin Chest Seal
Extra package of QuickClot
Two Israeli bandages
A “GOOD” pair of trauma shears
Basic first aid kit
Both pockets have a bright red PVC cross on the Velcro strip.
At the end of last year I had money left in my FSA account, so I refreshed my kit.
@Johnksg ive had a couple of near misses with chainsaws prob, the most dangerous tools you can have in your kit but they do come in handy spec after and during storms
I did kinda mean this thread to be about SAR/First Responder hardware and gear, but since it turned all medical…
I ALWAYS have a compression bandage, blood clotter, and a tourniquet near by!
@hunter1916 That’s my poison too. Irish made whiskey is on a different level but I still like a good bourbon
I am a firm believer in having a mylar blanket readily available for both maintaining body heat and also a bright reflective material for signaling for help in a bad situation.
@Flogrown this bottle of fine irish whiskey is waiting for the first person on the forum to come to ireland to claim it
@Johnksg Echo is my favorite chainsaw. Both of mine have performed A+. They have been well taken care of and cut countless cords. They were bought in 1980 or so and have given 0 problems in all that time.
I am as well! They should be in every backpack, tool kit, glove box, console, etc.
They are cheap, nearly weightless, take up almost no space, and have tons of uses.
@Flogrown @hunter1916 myself, I always preferred a shot or 2 of Hennessy Black,Cognac, and the company of a willing female "to survive by conserving body heat. only issue being, in the middle of a blackwater swamp, on a + 100 degree day, when you come out with that line, you usually get the cat eyed look… you guys know what im talking about…
@GOBLIN One of those cat-eyed females can save your life in bear country and allow you to carry a much smaller firearm for protection - even a .22 caliber. You only need enough power and accuracy to shoot her in the knee before you start running.
On my way to get that
