Say hello to my safety pod. an idea that i figured might help once and awhile.
I invite you to create once using any pod and shoving some medical items such as
And anything you can think of.
I will be using this whever I go just in case. I want to make this sport as safe as possible and even when nobodys around If by some off chance I see a downed comrade on the forest floor with a nasty cut I can do a quick patch job untill he can make it to the staging area.
right now in one pod I have fit:
guaze pads 3x3 ( 2 )
re-enforced bandage (8)
adhesive tape ( 1)
safty pins (6)
compress bandage (1)
butterfly closures (3)
alchohol swabs (3)
sting relief pads (2)
handcleaner wipes (3)
OH crud. speelt the word safety wrong.
after two games with it iv noticed many many things..
1. some of the paint has scratched off. oh well. the cross is still there
2. I had a sweet little kid come up to me ( i had my M82A1 shroud on my tippmann. ) asking me about being a sniper. after I told him there is no such thing as a sniper in paintball. he ran off to his dad and then he came back and we started talking about getting into mil-sim how its heavy especially for the younger kids and such and no there is no performance to it, but your out here to have fun so be it have fun.
and then he saw my saftey pod. asked me what that was and I told him
: " its just so if anything ever happens on the field I know that i might be able to help. if a kid gouges his leg it will help patch it up untill someone can really do it the proper way"
well it looked like the father was star struck. my gosh I didnt think someone could look at me like I did something right for the first time in my life.
Here I am standing covered in mud mosquito bites and paint with a 9.6 pund marker talking about the non existance of snipers in paintball, and this dad was looking at me like i was a barrel of pure refined high-tes gas.
so morel of my story. Its a responsible thing to do. and now I know im talking it with me where Ever I go. its more them just being safe, its about being responible and taking that opportunity for yourself to ensure that everyone is safe and happy. this safety pod is much much more then just a bunch of first aid crap inside a plastic contaner. Its potentaily Saving somebody dispite the odds being less then .03 per 1000 people.
