Biloxi, Mississippi (Ammoland.com) Building on the success of the original Pocket Life-Saver EDC trauma kit, Student of the Gun Gear introduces the P.L.S. 2.0. They have added the new Rapid Application Tourniquet System or R.A.T.S.  Developed by a member of the US Military’s Special Operation community, the R.A.T.S. is light-weight, easy to use, and capable of stemming a major bleeding injury in moments.

“We believe our end users will appreciate the improvement. The R.A.T.S. (tourniquet) has been recommended to us by respected members of the US Army Special Forces. It is tremendously effective, yet it can still be carried in pocket every day.” said Paul Markel, host of Student of the Gun.

If you are even involved in a traumatic injury situation, you will want to do something. The big question is will you have able to doing anything effective to aid the victim. Your ability will be based upon your training, experience, and available gear. Rather than waste precious seconds improvising, why not have the gear with you, ready to go?

“Without a doubt, tourniquets were a difference maker and saved lives.” said Dr. Joseph Blansfield, Trauma Program Manager, Boston Medical Center days after the Boston Terrorist Attack

A large pack, filled with trauma gear is naturally preferable, but such kits are not likely to be immediately available when you need them. The Pocket Life-Saver 2.0 EDC Med Kit is designed to be a compact, easy to carry, stop-gap trauma kit to immediately deal with a life threatening injuries while awaiting the arrival of professional medical personnel.
