Walther Arms is primarily known for making handguns. This German manufacturer produces a variety of semi-automatic pistols suitable for a range of purposes. Their modern lineup includes models optimized for competition, concealed carry, duty use, and more. Even James Bond is a fan, with the iconic PPK serving as 007’s primary sidearm throughout a great deal of his time on the silver screen and in the pages of many Bond novels. The company recently began offering high-end custom shop versions of some of their pistols, upgraded under their “Meister Manufaktur” program. In addition to guns, this fine gunmaker offers a smattering of accompanying gear items as well. To compliment their EDC-intended handguns, they’ve just announced a new ankle medical kit.
Walther Arms @ TFB:
The Defense Division Ankle Medical Kit, or DDAM Kit, is designed to serve as a low-profile, concealed IFAK (individual first aid kit). It allows you to conveniently keep some potentially lifesaving medical tools close at hand in case of emergency. Best of all, they include access to a series of training videos from Tac Med Solutions to help equip you with the foundations of a proper knowledge and training base with which to use the equipment. They also note, however, that these virtual modules should only serve as a starting point, rather than sufficient training on their own, so further instruction regarding proper trauma response is highly recommended. The announcement for the new DDAM Kit reads as follows.
