Keep a Boo-Boo Kit in Your Range Bag

Having a great day at the range starts with having your range bag packed correctly! Keeping a quality Trauma Kit with you at the range is important, and it can be helpful to keep a Boo-Boo Kit in your range bag for minor scrapes and scratches that may happen. Your Boo-Boo Kit can be as simple or as elaborate as you would like.

Here are some common items that can be included:

  • Quart-sized Ziploc bags
  • Nitrile Gloves
  • Band-Aids in various sizes/styles
  • Aspirin
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Digital Thermometer
  • Safety Pins
  • Sharpie
  • Antihistamine
  • Duct Tape
  • Medical Tape
  • Antiseptic Wipes
  • LeadOff Wipes
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Polysporin
  • Antacids
  • Burn Cream
  • Ponytail bands — they come in handy!

According to the National Safety Council, about 25% of emergency room visits could be avoided if people had basic first-aid training and were properly equipped to handle emergencies.

If you have a Chapter Facilitator, ask her about a chapter activity where everyone brings an item to share (e.g., a box of Band-aids). It’s a fun and cost-effective time! Learn more in Month #7 of your Shooting Journal.
