I see this statement all the time and stand by it firmly "you should be as prepared to save a life as you are to take a life".
This got me curious how many on Arfcom are actually certified to save a life. If not certified you should be everyone should know the basic assessments, and rapid trauma treatments if you carry a firearm.
Not just for other but for yourself chances are if you are close enough to use your firearm so is the bad guy!

CPR is usually for someone who is already dead im talking about stuff like assessing With DCAP-BTLS or applying a tourniquet in the proper place with proper amount of tension.
CPR is a good start but not if someone is shot in the chest.

I'm CPR certified.

Also learned things like tourniquets, how to deal with heat stroke, allergic reactions, insulin problems, bagging and tagging amputated parts, etc.

Basic first aid while waiting for the pros to get there kinda stuff.

I'm not but want to be. Where are good places to get training. I don't care to be an emt or anything just want to have the knowledge to be able to help when needed.

Isn't that what YouTube is for?

I've had some .mil courses that incl trauma care and the usual Red Cross classes.

Actually, except for not being hands-on, the YouTube clips are almost as good.
