A Medic’s Choice

The C.A.T. by North American Rescue is the gold standard when it comes to tourniquets. Unfortunately, the market is flooded with cheap knock-offs. Do you want to bet your life or someone else’s life of a tourniquet that may not work properly or flat our fall apart when attempting to use it? A CAT is generally about $30, but buyer beware! Even the $30 ones may not be genuine NAR CAT’s. If the only difference is the cost of shipping, better to buy from a reliable dealer and be sure to get the real thing. Anyway, there are a few alternatives to the CAT and you should be aware of them. Not that you should change from a CAT if that is what you currently carry, but you should know a little about the other good quality tourniquets in case you have to use one in an emergency.

Loosening Up

I’ve been getting email notifications form several ammunition dealers for deals on 9mm ammo. Got one today for free shipping on orders. Now don’t make the newbie mistake thinking that you can buy a box of 50 and get a good deal. 50 rounds at the range bareley warms up my gun, and doesn’t even get me started. So buy at least 500 or 1,000 or more rounds so you have plenty of range ammo to practice with. And get some self-defense ammo, too (hollow points).

So it might be a good time to spring for a case of 9’s, and look around to see if anything else is available. Just saying.

Overcoming Malfunctions

Considering that the AR-15 platform is the most popular rifle in the Republic, we all need to be familiar with it’s care and feeding. And they do have an occasional burp. In my experience in the Army, in training we were never allowed to clean our M-16’s. The purpose was to eliminate any concerns about the reliability of the rifle. I can attest to an M-16 going through 20,000 rounds without a cleaning or a malfunction. But it does happen. My youngest son keeps telling me that his AR is better than mine because he bought better parts when he built it. He definitely bought more expensive parts, but he has a job and his own money to spend. I tend toward basic Mil-spec parts from a reliable vendor for an AR build. Son scoffs at my rifle, but he has never outshot me. Remember, though, that the AR is the grown man’s Barbie, and cosmetic additions make for fun dress-up play time, so while my rifle may be Mil-spec, it might have some nice furniture on it.

However, any firearm can malfunction, so we need to be aware and practiced in first aid for the AR. Infidel put together this little video about clearing the 3 most common malfunctions associated with Eugene Stoner’s famous invention.

The Armed Christian

It has been yet another week of the same old rhetoric and power games. More Conservative voices censored and that same narrative that Conservatives are the second greatest threat to the nation.

    • Trump defense attorney has had his home vandalized and has had to hire private security for both his home and law office. Additionally, due to threats against his family he had to send them to a secret location to ensure their safety. I guess the Sixth Amendment guarantee to an attorney doesn’t apply to those who oppose The New Regime.
    • The New Regime, through the Thought Police agencies (FBI, DHS, et al.), has conducted and released a “comprehensive threat assessment” on “domestic violent extremism.” It concluded that Conservatives are an existential threat to all things worthy and good. Antifa and BLM who burned, looted assaulted and murdered their way through much of 2020 don’t even rank a mention.
