2018 Competition Wrap up

At the Camp Perry National Matches I always joke with the head coaches that I would like to see a first, […]

A band E For Effort

We Even Get Some Work Done

Last Saturday I went out to the Trigger Shop and went into our main building to get one of the trucks for some maintenance work. What I found was a band, set up on the old loading dock. From outside it was loud, inside it was deafening. The posted video sounds bad. In person it […]

Announcing The New Wisconsin Trigger Co. Swimming Pool

This has been the wettest spring and summer I can remember. We used to have a 4 bay loading dock in back. Now instead we have an Olympic sized swimming pool. The factory across the street did one better and installed a new lake in their truck lot and a moat around the office entrance. […]

I Hear Voices in my head

The Bigguner81 podcast went well. William set up a very impressive microphone and headset for me to use. It was way better quality then the old headset and microphone combination unit I had used in the past. If it would have worked it would have been awesome, but it did not. So much for high […]

The area around the town is flooded at times and it is like driving through the Florida everglades. There are even pelicans flying around. It’s a very relaxing drive. On this day, on […]

Adventures in Surplus Hunting

I have been going through an old back up disc and found some photos of a surplus junk yard we used to shop at in Bedford Indiana. It was always a treat to see what was new and hunt for gold in the cutup military scrap. One of the odd things was that the owner […]

Nuclear Warhead. in an old wood crate

Do You Want to Buy our Nuclear Warhead?

A few years ago I was on a surplus hunt with a friend. We heard of a scrap yard in St. Louis, MO. Off we went. When we got there, we found a large scrap yard with multiple buildings, none of them in too good of condition. The yard was mostly industrial surplus. They didn’t […]

When the deputies got there, they found the plate glass front window shattered, in an apparent attempt at a smash and grab. Investigation in to the crime took about 10 seconds. All the […]
