As a REAL WORLD nurse and former combat medic, I DO NOT like the term 'tourniquet' used in anything other than the strictest medical sense.
Ace Wraps are fine. Heck, at Dollar Tree you can get red ones for $1 each.
MSW is just trying to make a few $$s off the unwitting geardos in the airsoft community.
While I appreciate the idea, the new military doctrine is if you are not a medic, slap a TQ on it and let them sort it out in the rear. With at least an 8 hour window before permanent damage, it is just easier and quicker for the non-proffesionally trained to grasp and apply the concept.
As for the making some $$ off the geardos... Geardoes only make up 98% of airsofters, so it will problably workout just fine
I really like the idea of:
First hit- anyone can TQ
Second hit- medic must apply ACE wrap
Actually mentioned that in conversations last week without knowing it was similar to MSWs rules, but hey, if it is a good idea, steal it. Lol
