Range Safety Information

I just received info this from a contact. It originated from a tactical medic/firearms instructor. Cool picture at the end. Stay safe, Jeffrey Denning The pic I am attaching here is the hand of a local officer who was using his pocket knife to pry some staples off of a target. He just nicked his finger enough to barely draw blood. A couple days later he felt a lump in his forearm and armpit area as well as a lot of pain in the finger and hand. A trip to the hospital revealed the small cut developed a staph infection. So the doctors had to cut open the finger and hand to remove infected tissue. He spent about six weeks in a finger cast to keep the finger from curling up, then additional time in a finger “stretcher” that pulls the finger backwards to stretch the tendons that were affected by the infection. Again, all of this from a tiny scratch. Point is, we all use our knives for cutting just about anything (including drug exhibits). If you ever get poked, you introduce these things into your system. Grab some alcohol wipes and clean your knife blade regularly. If you ever do cut yourself, clean out the wound right away with alcohol and then use an antibiotic cream on it. Better safe than fileted! Dan
