Injectable Invention a Literal Lifesaver for Gunshot Victims

Already proven to be one of the most effective ways to keep a gunshot victim’s blood in his or her body, the XSTAT 30 has been cleared by the FDA.

You’ll have to do some deep research to get your hands on a few of these, though, as they’re currently only available to the military and emergency services.

In the end, I hope I am labeled as an all around good guy.
