The Women’s Gun Show Episode #46: From Boo-Boos to Battlefield Wounds – Why You Need a First Aid Kit
In episode #46, Carrie Lightfoot (The Well Armed Woman) and Barbara Baird (Women’s Outdoor News) talk about the importance of having a first aid kit handy when shooting, and several pointers to remember about these essential pieces of gear. The women also discuss news, including Joe Biden’s method of shooting, along with cool gear, events and how to become their “fan of the month.” Sponsored by Ruger.

Topic: First Aid Kit
First, everyone should have a First Aid Kit handy, no matter what you are doing outdoors.
- Stock the kit with necessary items for your activities
- Always know where the kit is located
- Flag the kit – either put a bandana on it, or pack it in an easily identified case
- Let everyone who is participating know where the kit is
- Tell everyone where you are during the training or activity, so if they need to call 911, they’ll know what to tell the responders
- Make it according to research or purchase one (mention Carrie’s new line)
- Will find some good sites that list contents for first aid kits for shooting
