Re: Protesters target NRA lobbyist’s home and wife’s business

I’ve heard that Chris and Dana Leosch, who live here in Southlake, Texas, have faced similar threats and attacks from the left at their home. My guess is that the state of Texas is not likely to give the Leosch’s too hard of a time if they end up having to use deadly force to defend themselves.

Re: Slidefire is shutting down?

Re: Sponge-Inspired XSTAT Device Quickly Seals Gunshot Wounds

Interesting. If your class was more recent than mine (3 years ago), maybe the protocols have changed. Maybe so, we took it a few weeks ago. They also talked at length about the sponge packed syringes and the trauma surgeons were big fans of them... thinking they must be a newer version/model than w...

Gunner 4640 didn’t mention caliber. What if his XDM 3.8 is a .45 .... like mine? :mrgreen:

Re: Sponge-Inspired XSTAT Device Quickly Seals Gunshot Wounds

Old news, actually. These have been around for a few years now. When I took my Medic 1 class from LoneStar Medics, they were leery of using these things, partly because it involves inserting a foreign object into the wound, which transcends what a non-professional is permitted to do by law . Also, ...
