Main Topic: EDC Medical Carry with Rhody of Rhode Island Armory & We Like Shooting

A lot of times we focus on what guns or ammunition we are going to carry, but we dont focus on the aspect of self defense that deals with trauma. A firearm causes serious bodily trauma and often seriously injures or kills the person shot.  We should understand how to deal with trauma, physiological and psychological stress.
