Here is my brief after action report on the Stop the Bleed course I recently attended. I urge everyone to look for and attend a course like this to start developing some basic, but critically important, first aid skills.
Personally, I think defensive pistol skills are the second most important survival skills to have (next to first aid skills). In this post, I’ll talk why I think that and how I recommend going about developing that skill set.
A not so brief after action report of Gabe White’s Pistol Shooting Solutions course – a high intensity advanced pistol handling course that I highly recommend.
Figured I’d share my layman’s approach to conducting threat assessments since I recently reassessed threats given all the 2020 craziness. Glad I did this exercise as it seems threat exposure has definitely shifted.

The more I grow as an armed self defender the more I realize I need to level up my first aid skills. I’ve put a kit together, but I don’t know enough to objectively evaluate it. As such, I’m asking for help. How would you rate my kit?
