How many of yall keep a first-aid kit in your range bag? I keep one in mine, with a lot of cleaning pads, alcohol pads, band aids, gauze, compression pads, tape, etc. I can take care of a lot of problems with it, even more serious injuries, at least until help arrives.

Do you keep the blood clotting bandages in those kits?
I don't keep the blood clotting agents in mine simply because I have no experince with them, good or bad.

In an instance where I would need a blood clotting agent I would instead use the current medical protocol; direct pressure, elevation, pressure points. If those are deemed unsuccesful, a tourniquet is the last resort.

I've read/heard that chemical blood clotting agents such as quick clot are a bear to remove from a wound site after the fact. Not sure if the treated bandages would work any better.

After seeing Hammer's in his range bag, I decided to keep me one in my versipack that I carry everyday. I got some quick clot and a bandage, but thats about it. What am I missing?

That one you saw was my every day carry kit. I have since made a kit up specifically for the range bag. It stays in the range bag at all times. What I did was I bought two kits from Wal-Mart. One in the pharmacy section made by Johnson and Johnson, and one made by Coleman in the sporting goods section. Then I mixed and matched what I wanted for a specific kit. Bought extra stuff and individual items for specific kits. I have one in the range bag, one that goes everywhere, and about 3 at home.
