What is a trauma class and why is it worth three hours of my time?

It has been well over two years since we called for a trauma kit in every school building . At first only a few schools took the call seriously, but over the past year we have seen a steady increase in interest in both the supplies, and the training to use them.

8 Quality Carry Guns for Under $400…Or Not

Guns and Ammo ’s online magazine ran an article touting the 8 best “quality” handguns available for under $400. I like the premise of the article, but I can’t say that I agree with the author’s choices. Check out the article HERE . The author chooses the following guns as “affordable, reliable carry guns“.
