Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- DTI TTGSW now available on-line!

I’ve decided to make our TTGSW Course (Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds) accessible to more people than just those who are able to attend in person.

So, we’ve put-together an on-line, video version of this Course. It is not exactly the same as being there, but there is much vital information that we can thus get to those who really need it.

This is a stand-alone course, and not part of our existing DTI Operator Series.

However, we’re including this course, at no additional charge, with your annual subscription to the DTI Operator Series.

When you already have an annual subscription to our DTI Operator Series, you have recently been e-mailed a coupon code for this new TTGSW Course

You can otherwise access this on-line version of our TTGSW Course in one of two ways:

  1. Purchase the stand-alone TTGSW Course for $100.00 in our Pro Shop: shop.dtioperator.com/product/dti-tactical-treatment-of-gunshot-wounds/
  2. Sign-up for an annual subscription to our DTI Operator Series for $140.00 here: www.dtioperator.com/sign-up/

When you sign up, you’ll be given a coupon code to use for the TTGSW course.

When you go armed, or not, you may well be confronted with a GSW that you have to attend to immediately and personally!

Our twin goals when treating GSWs in the field are:

  1. Prevent needless deaths. Many GSWs are not fatal, but many that ultimately are don’t need to be. When those treating wound(s) are correctly equipped, and know what to do, the vast majority of needless GSW deaths can be prevented.
  2. Keep the patient conscious and actively involved in his, and our, welfare. When GSW victims “pass-out” (become comatose), they can’t move, can’ t shoot, can’t look after themselves, can’t contribute to the success of our mission. They become a burden, instead of a contributor. We want to keep them awake and “in the fight,” for their own benefit, and ours!

Is there anything like this available for K9s?‎


More training is always better, and some training is better than none.


Please don’t kid yourself.
If it takes training and practice to shoot accurately under pressure, why do you think a video is going to make you capable of placing a tourniquet, a wound packing, a chest needle or a nasal airway in the dark while dealing with incoming? Get real TRAINING and use vids as refresher, while you PRACTICE.

John makes excellent points. Also, let the GSV know you will not leave them and make physical contact with the person even if there is an ongoing fight. If only having a knee or shoulder contact the other person, physical contact makes a difference. One other point, how many carry a gun on a daily basis but don’t even have the most rudimentary of first aid kits in their vehicle let alone something devised to handle serious trauma until paramedics arrive? Just the addition of an IBD (Israeli Battle Dressing) can make the difference between life and death in a… Read more »
