Neat item

Check this out @ Cabelas.

It's a disposable sterile stapler for stitching wounds, 15 staples for $25. Next time I order from there I'm going to buy one. Unless I manage to take the drive down to Hartford, CT first.

I should buy some sutures too, I know.

Not that I am an advocate of closing (suturing/stapleing) traumatic wounds without proper debridement........don't forget to get a staple "remover". Taking staples out with the proper instrument is a lot nicer for the patient and reduces the chance of ripping the wound back open while your trying to wrestle the little buggers out with your Leatherman!
