Defenders USA Trauma Kit
“Part of being a Defender is having expertly-selected and properly-staged trauma medical gear at the ready sustain life and is a necessity for anyone who believes in protecting and preserving themselves and those they love in emergency situations.
Training in this area is just as important, and arguably more important, than learning to use a firearm for the defense of life.
The likelihood of desperately needing and using such important medical gear and life-preserving medical training is far higher than ever having to use a gun in defense, and we at Defenders USA are here to help you be correctly equipped with the most necessary items to help sustain life in case unexpected medical trauma happens.”
-Adam Winch | Owner, Founder & Lead Instructor Defenders USA
