Look for competing brands that are less expensive. Celox is a competitor of Quickclot and while its somewhat pricey; if you have a gunshot wound you won't be complaining. Dermabond also has competing brands that are a little less expensive, but in a pinch you can use superglue. It was first developed for medical use anyway. The other alternative is going to a veterinarian/ farm supply. Most people overlook this but farm supply places are a good source of antibiotics, med supplies, and I also purchase zeolite and charcoal for water filtration etc.
