Take a class is great advice. I have taken a bunch, and I am certified to teach "Stop the Bleed" (if anyone needs it in CO, drop me a note).

In every car, TQ, Quick Clot gauze, gloves at a minimum. Same when hunting. At the range I take a full kit. The previous, plus first aid, snake bite. Home range has three full kits for matches that include AEDs.

North American Rescue sells kits up and down the spectrum. After a lot of training, I have come to the conclusion that I won't ever use or recommend anything but the North American Rescue CAT7 (or whatever is current) TQs except maybe a SWAT-T if there are little ones. Too many failures in actual and testing for the rest.

This is a good basic kit that exceeds the Stop the Bleed specs:
Good Shooting, MarkCO
