I've seen it done with shock cord. Is anyone making a dedicated, more secure solution? Preferably it would mount to the bottom of a Magpul MOE or CTR stock.

ETA: Damn, I meant for this to go in the tac. gear section. How the hell did I end up in GD? Oh well, the answers should be interesting...

ETA2: oh goody, someone moved it. Now there are two of these threads.

A google search for "CAT Tourniquet Holster" and CAT Tourniquet Pouch" turns up a dizzying array or products. I like this one. Use the attachment method of your choice to get it affixed to your rifle. I would opt for lengths of velcro myself.

I've seen them mounted with rubberbands. I have thought about trying to mount one with cheap velcro stap from Menards or some such.
I used one to mount my cleaning rod to my carbine.

Well, if I'm rigging something up like that, I'd rather use OSOE's TQ Holder. It's basically an Roman numeral 2 made of elastic that folds over the TQ to hold it securely using hook and loop on the inside edges. I've actually contacted John on Facebook to see if he can add some strapping to it to make it work as I want.

Otherwise, I'll just use shock cord. There's a great thread on Lightfighter showing how people have rigged this up with various stocks.

I want something that's tailor made. However, in the spirit of Occam's Razor, shock cord is probably the best answer.

I never seen a stock bleeding so bad thet dyrect pressure wouldn't stop the bleeding. Turneymequets sound like overkill.

Put the TQ on the AR using DT for PDQ access, so you are not SOL and become DOA!

When the SHTF you need stuff ASAP in your AO at the FOB and not look like a REMF!

English MF! Do you speak it?????

Did you just watch a movie and see one mounted on the stock? You and your weapon can be easily separated, it is considerably harder to separate you from your vest. Put it there, don't look back.

This.

Also if you're wearing ACU style trousers/coat, a CAT will be convenient in one/both calf pockets and/or one/both shoulder pockets.

Take 2 zip ties and zip tie a Blue Force Gear Tourniquet now to your stock, it's easy with a CTR, a Sopmod is a bit more difficult but can be done.

No offense, but a zip tie sounds like an awful idea. When you NEED a tourniquet, you need it NOW, not after you get a zip tie cut off of your stock (which also seems like a good way to start flagging people.

Just a thought.

No bro you don't zip tie the tourniquet, just the tourniquet holder from Blue Force Gear.

It's easy just pull it out from the windlass end and apply it as needed, I practice doing it one handed, and it's safe, deck the barrel and pull up.

We kept them in multiple locations. Bad day if you carry all of them in one place and that gets blown off. I'm not sure of the value in a non-afghanistan situation though.

And zip ties sounds like a horrible idea.

Some of our guys use that self adhering elastic bandage stuff you would see if you donated blood. It is easy to attach the TQ to the stock that way and if needed you just cut it off. It is cheap too. Of course they also carry other TQs on their person. I believe they got the idea from Paul Howes during one of his training classes.

You have some really strange sexual fantasies. You should keep them to yourself.
Link Posted: 11/24/2012 3:04:24 AM EST
Not something I'm going to run out and do but I'm not seeing where all the hate is coming from on this. With the TQ attached to the rifle you pretty much guarantee that if you have the rifle you will have a TQ if it is needed. Useful if you are a cool guy ninja and you only had time to grab your rifle when reacting to something. Also useful if you are Joe average and you are out shooting with friends in the middle of no where and there is an accident.

I'm not interested because I don't see myself being all that likely to need a tourniquet and if I do that is what first aid kits are for. But the idea still has some merit, just like attaching a spare mag there is an idea some people like.

That would be "Vet Tape". Lots of uses for it. It comes in lots of different widths and colors too. They even make it in camo. That said dirt really sticks to it.

If you use an AR for home defense you would be lucky to be wearing boxer shorts, let alone a tac vest with a medical pouch.

Well, I did say the answers to this thread would be entertaining.

1. I'm not military anymore, so I don't have a vest or "tons of pockets on multicam uniform."
2. I didn't just watch a video or just hear about this. We had several SF guys come through my FOB in '03 and they all had it done. There's also a great thread about it on Lightfighter where most everyone uses shock cord. The Paul Howe pic above is somewhat relevant as well.
3. A lot of you seem to think one tourniquet (TQ) is enough. Why?
4. Since I'm no longer military and I don't wear a vest or a rig when I shoot on a range, where should I keep the TQ? Why is on the rifle stock such a horrible/silly place to keep on? If an accident happens, it's right there by your hand/near you if you drop your rifle. No one has to dig for it in a pocket (if they even know you have one).
5. Lol to the guy that "editted" my link to the OSOE page. I'm well aware John has some hate. I've never had a problem with him in 7 years. I understand some guys are on a crusade against him. "All that hate is gonna burn you up, kid."
6. Some of you all have odd sexual issues.
7. NPA can be attached to a M9 via duct tape around via the dust cover and a zip tie through the trigger guard (NPA may be a little....floppy).

So let's recap. I'm not military. I don't carry a rig every day. This is just "in case" I can't get to my range bag (where there are two SOF-Ts) or my medical bag (where there are 4 TK-4s and 2 CATs). I'm not seeing where the hate for the placement of one tourniquet is coming from.

ETA: for those that are members, there's a great thread on Lightfighter regarding this subject. I think I searched "rifle tourniquet." It's from August of 2010. So it's not really something that new.
