Ever seen the effects of a 5 foot fall onto sharp rocks? Accidents happen and it never hurts to be prepared to provide first aid.

However most people just (as mentioned before) keep random stuff in them.

I have medical pouches. I also have a Tactical Response VOK (ventilated operator kit) in case of a gunshot injury. I keep it in my range bag, just in case.

The medical pouch and the VOK have never met.

The VOK has no purpose for airsoft, the medical pouch can hold lots of things.

I carry a FAK, usually in my pack.

While most of the supplies go unused, accidents do happen: minors cuts, scratches, bleeders, Advil for headaches, Afterbite for annoying mosquito bites. Doesn't hurt carrying some gauze and a few pads in case something a bit more serious happens.

Those of us that play in the woods rather than paintball fields know it can be a long walk back to the parking lot, so having supplies with you is a good thing.

I always have a first aid kit not too far in my bag, be it for airsoft or just going to school.

It's just the kind of thing that carries well and that you regret not having when it's needed.

Get a first aid course, best dollars you'll ever spend.

Carrying medical supplies in any sport or activity is a good idea you dont really need to carry a blowout kit (you might see it be called a VOK or IFAK around here) but a medium level medical kit with enough supplies to treat severe cuts burns and fractures certainly has its place in any sport

My medic pouches actually carries a medic kit. Not a military trauma kit, by an hiker's first aid kit + gauze, scissors, medical tape, medical compression elastics and Advil.

In case the game's scenario request me to carry a "fake medic pack" (in the case of some milsims) I'll usually use my tactical manpurse (fanny bag^^).

I always have a small firstaid kit in my school backpack as an EDC item, as well as everytime I go... anywhere I have a bag or I think it might be useful (like an outdoor show... I actually needed it during the Festival d'Été here in Quebec when a friend got a beer bottle from out of nowhere on the head...).

I keep a basic first aid kit on me whenever I take my backpack out of the house. Whether I'm going to play, going to work, or going grocery shopping. My backpack has some Molle webs on it, so I keep the pouch hooked on my pack.

Some of us are first responders, and have witnessed accidents that happen to people who arnt prepared. Nothing sucks more than getting injured on the field when your supposed to be having fun.

I should probably buy a "real" first aid kit (either piecemeal it together or buy a kit from SJA) but right now I just have a few band aids, 2 pieces of sterile gauze, rubber gloves, and a compression bandage in my first aid pouch. Not much but at least it's better than nothing if something does happen.

IMHO there isn't a whole lot of point to individual players carrying first aid gear at most events; as the vast majority of games will have players within a 5 minute run of the staging area. However, when taking part in MILSIM type games that can range over 50+ acres, it's not a bad idea to have some people carrying the basics.

In that scenario, most teams/groups worth their salt will have basic medic gear with them to deal with the most common sorts of injuries, ie accidental falls. So gear to deal with sprained ankles, broken limbs etc are your best bet. You can toss a splint in the back of your assault pack and you'll never even notice it until you do need it.

As someone who has been severely injured during a game (fall from a watch tower, 2x fractured ribs, lacerated kidney) what helped me wasn't anyone's medical gear, but having some trained EMT's who were playing, and a good friend's willingness to drive a jeep to me and back out of the playing area to meet the ambulance (no matter how much I screamed like a bitch).

In short, if you want to carry some medical supplies, go ahead, just don't go overboard w/ portable defibrillators etc
