JOHN CONNOR G2G GOOD TO GO GEAR ResQ-Pak EmErgEncy mEdical Packs by bluElinE TacTical A long-standing problem with emergency medical gear has been: what to carry, how much of it, and where? Often we wind up with either a big tackle box full of disorganized junk, or a dirty band-aid in a pocket. ResQ-Pak has done the thinking and organizing for you, offering three ascending levels of supplies suitable for plainclothes, patrol and tactical applications in compact, tough, sealed packets ranging from 5-10 oz. Each includes hemorrhage-stopping HemCon ChitoGauze, and they’re designed for self-treatment as well as use on others. The biggest pack — Level 3 — measures only 2.3x5x7", so it fits in a BDU cargo pocket. Belt and MOLLE carry pouches are also available. They’re $49.50 to $150, and worth it! “GAT” Glass assault tool by Xs siGhts Hand-held glass breakers can be lifesavers, whether you’re affecting a rescue or forcibly evicting dirtbags from their Dodges. Smaller ones can be easily carried, but when you’re doing dirtbag removal, you give up a hand to use them. A slip or a grab by a suspect can lead to serious lacerations. For those kinds of “tender moments,” the GAT, mounted on the A-1 or A-2 flash suppressor of your AR, can be the perfect solution. Made of tough, anodized aluminum, the underside holds a sharp, triangular tungsten carbide “tooth” which easily breaks auto safety glass. The triple-pointed tooth can be removed and rotated if necessary. It attaches with two hex screws, doesn’t interfere with flash suppression, and weighs only 1 oz. MSRP: $80.
