People often ask me, “What is the best first aid kit?” That depends on what you are doing. If what you are doing is shooting, getting shot at or at risk of trauma, the best first aid kit is the SHIELD from MyMedic. The Shield a small light one patient kit that goes on your belt or in your car. It is always available and quick to use. I wear one on my belt when I am teaching or running a range.

MyMedic calls the SHIELD the toughest First Aid Trauma Kit on the planet. It is designed to care for one person with life threatening injuries until definitive medical care is available.


  • Built by Hand in the U.S.A.
  • Lifetime Guarantee
  • Water Resistant


The Shield comes with MOLLE attachment bars which have a clever quick release lanyard. There is a strap which can route through the bars to attach the Shield to the back of an automobile headrest or any other solid object you want. Ready for any injury.

The Rapid Application Tourniquet (R.A.T.S ) was new to me. RATS is a solid vulcanized rubber core with a nylon sheath combined with a unique locking mechanism make this a simple and incredibly fast tourniquet to apply to self or others.

The RATS is specifically designed to be applied under stress. The movements used to apply the tourniquet are big gross motor skills. It is much easier to use and train than other systems. The video below explains the system:

About MyMedic in their own words:

TRAGEDY In 2010 we lost our father when a semi-truck made an illegal left turn as he headed home.  It took 45 minutes for the ambulance to arrive and he was gone minutes later.
COVER-UP For years an insurance company, trucking empire, local government officials and a judge-turned-truck-driver worked together to hide a mountain of corporate misbehavior.
THE TRIAL The truth was exposed and a jury awarded us an “inheritance”.  During the trial we learned that another driver immediately stopped to help our dad but didn’t have the knowledge or tools to do anything.


What if we could make the tools required to save a life simple, accessible and affordable?
What if we used our “inheritance” to change the world, to ease pain and suffering and save lives instead of buying… stuff?
If this happened again somewhere in the world, is it possible that we could be the reason you live?  We thought so…
