Being a Boy Scout :) and also one of those guys that has a first aide kit all the time (BE PREPARED).. I thought I'd mention a small item that could be relevant to a gunshot related injury.

The magical tampon :)

While certainly a wound with significant internal bleeding would not bennifit from jamming a tampon in there - there is certainly some merit to plugging up wounds in an arm or a leg.
(We all wear body armor right? )

Jam it in, let it expand and slow the bleeding.
I am not a medic, but have been told this about use on gunshots. Then I watched the video below and it is obviously not a good ideal.
