First aid kit

What do you have in your first aid kits? Is it pre-fab (store bought) or one you put together yourself?

I have 3 first aid kits:
one for my backpack for camping/hunting/fishing/skiing, basically anything where I'm away from my car for multiple days and it contains:
band-aids
gauze
butterfly bandages
tape
mole skin
assorted pills, antihistamines, aspirin, etc...
burn cream
sunscreen
soap
razor blade
tweezers
safety pins
needle
fishing line
quarters for a pay phone
waterproof matches

I have a kit I keep in my truck and it's really similar but has some more stuff like:
instant ice packs
flashlight
towels
hemostats
maps
water
sleeping bag
I also like to keep my backpacking stove and an light aluminum pot in my truck so I can boil water quickly without using the engine as a heat source.
all this stuff isn't in there all the time but if I'm going to the country it is, I also have a tool box in my pickup with tools to fix my rig should something happen and I can't get a tow or anything, I can at least limp it back to civilization.

my first aid kit at home is pretty much the same as what goes in the pickup

Definitely seems heavy on the airway management end. I mean jesus--you have 2 BVMs AND a CPR mask? (Not to mention OPAs and NPAs.) Sounds more like a "oh shit someone just got hit by a car I should go save their ass" kit than a first aid kid, haha. (Especially since pretty much everything on there is useless for helping yourself out, minus the bandaids and some of the dressings.)

ABCs dude

many times I never get past A

it's come in handy before, but I usually use it for the first aid kit supplies most often.

super glue is your best friend btw keep it in your kit.
