Manyt self defense minded individuals out there are prepared to send lead downrange in defense of their lives and loved ones But preparing for the consequences of being on the receiving end of some high velocity lead is often overlooked. Blue Force Gear has come up with a new product to help police officers, shooters, and hunters prepare for the worst case scenario with their Micro TRN personal trauma kit.
The kit comes with everything you see here: two chest seals, a chest decompression needle, QuickClot impregnated gauze, a combat dressing, some tape, a nasopharyngeal airway (with lube, thank the maker), some gloves and some tape. Adorning the front of the kit is a cross shaped cutout where the end user can slide either a red, black, or day/night high visibility backing (or none, if preferred) for quick identification (backing included). The idea is hat the kit has everything you need to stabilize someone after suffering a traumatic event until a higher level of care arrives.
Notably missing from the kit: a tourniquet. According to BFG the reason is that most LEOs and military folks have multiple TK’s on their person at all times, so adding another one doesn’t make sense. There will, however, be a TK-equipped civilian version coming out soon for those who want a compact, convenient one-stop blowout kit.
Blue Force Gear designed the kit to be as small as possible so that law enforcement and military folks can carry it on their person or strap it to the stock of their rifle for easy access. But that’s not the only market. One of BFG’s finest told us a story where he was on a hunting trip with a buddy when his friend became gravely injured, and having a kit like this one would have been ideal to help him in his time of need.
Retail pricing will be $68 for the shell only and $200 fully loaded, available soon.
