A couple of years ago, I was sitting in my upstairs office working when I heard a very loud and scary boom. I called down to my husband and there was no response. I tried again then rushed down the stairs, nearly tripping on my way down. There he was, Glock in hand, paying no attention whatsoever to my panic.
Long story short, he was attempting to remove what he thought was an empty reload shell that was stuck in the chamber of his handgun. The shell fired and we now had a bullet hole into our Brazilian cherry floor. It could have been worse. A lot worse. It could have been his foot or my dog who is always underfoot.
The point of all if this is that accidents do happen and we all need to be prepared for a medical emergency when help may not be on the way. It is my opinion that everyone should have a kit that can control severe bleeding and my top choice is the Gunshot Wound Kit from Doom and Bloom Store.
