Oh, I FINALLY found some styptic pencils (2) at target. Didn't see any then one of the pharmacy workers came by and asked if I needed anything. I told him what I was looking for and he said they didn't carry them anymore, but thought they had some behind the counter. He looked and they did have in an old bag. He gave them to me, Woo Hoo!

Now I am ready to finally put my kit together, but I still need to order a couple "Specialty" Items and It will have the recommended items in it. THEN I can (once I am satisfied) start building another.

Boy I really like that Orca FAK bag I bought. it holds a ton of stuff and I could still cram some more into it!

OK, I have (I think)

6 4x4 pads
6 3x2 pads
10 2x2 pads
12 Butterfly band aids
6 3x4 band aids
6 3/4x3 inch band aids
1 roll of that stick to itself stretch bandage material
1 roll of surgical tape, that kind that really sticks
1 pair EMT scissors
1 pair plastic "Hemostats"
1 roll 3.75x 30 inches wire mesh splint
2 Ace bandages (the kind that you don't need the little clips)
2 Styptic pencils (1 will be going in my next kit)
1 sharpie
1 small bottle Zofran
1 small bottle Benadryl
20 "Baby Aspirin"
1 card of 10 anti diarrhea pills
1 card of 12 sinus/headache pills
1 "Dental" repair kit for lost fillings or holes
12 alcohol prep pads (about 1x1 inch)
2 Iodine prep pads (all I had)
8 pair rubber gloves (they came in an 8 pack bag
1 C-A-T tourniquet
1 tube "Chapstick"
1 tube Triple Acting Antibiotic gel
1 tube burn cream

I am sure I am forgetting at least a couple things. Everything did fit in the bag. Yes it did not easily zip shut, but it really wasn't that difficult to get closed either, it surprised me

I still have a few things to add and I am sure I will be removing the AMOUNT of some items I have, but it is an ongoing thing. BUT I feel as If I have a really good start. What say you Dogs?

Looks good but I see no super glue, Ranger candy or surgical instruments. You may want to increase your supply of pads and bandaids.

Forgot about the superglue, Thanks Ray. I have heard of Ranger candy but can't remember what it is? Surgical instruments I am not sure about, not trained in their use. Can you explain?

Ranger candy is Motrin 800 mg or Ibuprofen. I understand that some people should not take it. My doctor says I can only take Tylenol and no Ibuprofen. A basic surgical kit would allow the performance of fairly common procedures such as a tracheostomy to allow a person to breathe if there is an airway obstruction, correcting ingrown toenails, stitching wounds and other simple procedures. The other use would be for brain surgery but that is something that would be useless for rednecks.

No, but brain surgery is not practical. You would need an extraordinarily large magnifying glass that wouldn’t fit in a backpack.
