Is this offer available outside of OH?  If so, I'd like to throw my name in the pot.  Glad to also cover the difference in postage if needed.  I'm in WA state.

The American Constitution is remarkable for its simplicity; but can only suffice a people habitually correct in their actions, and would be utterly inadequate to the wants of a different nation.  Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter in the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government. - Francis Grund 1837

One thing to be aware of: States that have a Good Samaritan law protect you only if you are rendering aid that you have been trained to give. So don't go sticking a tourniquet on someone if you're not up to date on its proper use.

Having said that, I think all instructors should carry an IFAK and be prepared to use it.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”

 Stock in store?
  It appears that 40-50 people wish to add this to their kit.Should these be an item in the A/S store? :-\

When available, count me in.  I've already got a solid IFAK, but it never hurts to have a spare.

We are still interested in two quality IFAK kits. 

We have two at this point, and two more would be a good idea.  One for each vehicle.  One for the house.  One for the range box.

Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

I'm interested  in one aswell if it's still going on. That's a pretty fair price for a pre assembled kit, I've taken a few TCCC courses in the past and they are great courses. If your having trouble sourcing from this supplier I know that primaryarms.com and LApolicegear.com usually have the indivdual items needed to built a kit yourself. May be a good secondary option if anyone is needing a IFAK sooner.

Mitch,
If you do a second order, put me in for two.

Thank you.
