IT'S THE 2017 WISCONSIN TRAPPERMAN BREAKFAST!

DATE & TIME:
Sunday, April 2nd
8:00 to 1:00 or so
(Zim and I will be there closer to 7:00 to set up.)

The Farm Kitchen
S5718 Highway 123
Baraboo, WI
608-356-5246

The Farm Kitchen is on the east side of Highway 123, almost directly across from where Highway 159 comes in from the west. Enter from the south parking lot and go to the dining room on the right!


LATEST UPDATE AS OF TUESDAY, MARCH 21:
WE WILL BE IN THE FAR EAST DINING ROOM WHERE WE WERE LAST YEAR. THAT RENOVATION IS COMPLETE AND WE WILL HAVE THAT ROOM TO OURSELVES ALONG WITH THE BUFFET. The rest of the restaurant will be closed until Palm Sunday. They said they are just open for our party.


UPDATE MARCH31st:
Enter on Tranquility Drive just north of the Farm Kitchen and go all the way around the east side of the Farm Kitchen and around to the south parking lot. They no longer have a driveway on the south side going out to the highway!


ACTIVITIES:
Gather and visit.
Eat huge buffet breakfast.
Win door and raffle prizes.
Enjoy our featured speaker.
Visit some more, play some bingo and win some more prizes!!!!!!!!!

As always, we sure appreciate any door prize or raffle items you can bring along to donate. The bulk of our proceeds go to the Trapperman Discretionary Fund, so buy lots of raffle tickets!

OUR FEATURED SPEAKER IS: GREENCOUNTYPETE!

GREENCOUNTYPETE is the Chairman of Green County 4-H Shooting Sports, he is a 4-H state certified rifle, pistol, muzzleloader and shotgun instructor and he is on the state 4-H training team as a state muzzle loader instructor.

Peter will be talking about handgun shooting fundamentals, including good form and grip, how to shoot accurately and how to apply those fundamentals to shooting quickly as well. All great skills for both kids and adults - on the trapline and everywhere else. New shooters and anyone who wants to sharpen their skills can pick up something here.


Let me know if you think you are coming so I can get a rough head count for setting up tables. Thanks!

Come on over and join us! We'd love to see the old familiar faces and all the new ones too!
Patrice

Zim,

Can you check to see if the city has any kind of trash ordinance in case we don't get all the empties picked up.

Hate to be in bad standings with the place for letting us shoot.

Im guessing that is because we will be shooting with 8n the city limits and they are worried about ordinance violations?

I PROMISE I WILL KEEP BRIAN AND LIMPY UNDER CONTROL. CAN'T SAY MUCH ABOUT BRIAN'S WIFE KIM, THAT GIRL IS A LOOSE CANNON!

while I promised the restaurant no live ammo I do plan to make it as interactive as possible.

I was thinking about how I could do air pistols with a backstop but I think that is to much for a restaurant setting and still falls into shooting in the restaurant which I promised not to do.

Whatever you do will be great, Pete. I think there's a lot of interest and we'll all get a lot out of it.

Could we tie AceTrapper up to a backstop and maybe shoot rubber darts at him or something? laugh

Note the updated information at the top of this thread!

We are back to our original location at the Farm Kitchen. One of the gals there just called and said they will be done with their kitchen remodel and will have the Sunday buffet back at the Farm Kitchen again. We'll be back in our original big dining room where we were every year except last year.

By the way, this will be our 15th Wisconsin Trapperman Breakfast!

Dang Brian, I can't think of any place around here a guy could shoot a thousand yards. A guy would have to pack a lunch just to check his target, Would be fun to do it sometime.

you would have to know someone over at Winniqua in Lodi they have a 1200 yard with video targeting system so that you don't need the lunch.

I get to teach there about every other year , they have made a bunch of changes and a lot of new ranges.

they are the host for the north central region USPSA nationals so that has driven a lot of their expansion.

I know a few members there , they are like the Masons , Ask a member to become a member.

some day I am going to join and get a trailer in their camping area and make it my second home much of the summer. I don't want to wait for retirement to do that but maybe till the kids are out of the house.

Note the update at the top. It's musical dining rooms ... laugh

Denny, our speaker usually starts between 10:15 and 10:30. Get there as soon as you can and get some breakfast. It sounds like we have the buffet all to ourselves.

Pete, they said they have a TV with an HDMI port and will have it in the room for us.

Here's our current group for the Breakfast:

Zim & Patrice - 2
GREENCOUNTYPETE - 2
Nute - 3
Macthediver - 2
Tightchain - 1
Black and Tan - 1
MaBear - 4
Dan Carroll - 2
Trapdad - 5
Chris H - 1?

I just spoke with MaBear. Her sons are really looking forward to asking Pete a lot of questions. This should be a fantastic topic and we're going to have a great group for our little private party! It was very nice of the folks at Farm Kitchen to open for us to have our breakfast. Maybe we just pull up our chairs and eat right off the buffet! laugh

I'll give them a head count at the end of the week. Looking forward to this!

Hey Folks!

I just got back from the Farm Kitchen. They moved their parking lot entrance to thee north side of the building. Check out this map:


Enter on Tranquility Lane just north of the Farm Kitchen and go all the way around the east side of the Farm Kitchen and down to the south parking lot. They no longer have a driveway on the south side going out to the highway!

Sorry to hear that Pelzjager. This is going to be a good one!

The people at the Farm Kitchen were setting up our breakfast area yesterday. What more could you ask for? Buffet full of food on one side of the room. Guns and targets on the other side. Too much fun!

Well, we just got home from the 15th annual Wisconsin Trapperman Breakfast. I'm full and I want to get out and shoot some targets!!! We had a good time.

We only had 19 people this year, but it was a really nice group. We visited with friends, met some new ones, stuffed ourselves, won some prizes and sharpened our handgun skills! What more could you ask out of a morning? GREENCOUNTYPETE was a wealth of information. Thank you Pete!

Here are some photos ...

First here are some of the people: Here's Pete's wife Theresa and son Jakob.

MaBear and her sons Rob and Caleb

Ma bear again and husband Geoff and her son Josh

Trapdad's wife Melissa, daughter Alydia and his mom, Linda

(Left to right) GREENCOUNTYPETE, Macthediver, Black and Tan

(Left to right) Black and Tan, Zim, Macthediver's son Jesse and Trapdad


(The other attendees were Nute, his daughter Steph and myself!)

Well, those folks at the Farm Kitchen treated us well. We did not starve to death. Here is the evidence.










And I missed a shot of an entire table of pastries and some hot cinnamon rolls!

We gave out some door prizes, and then started with our main event ... (see next post)

GREENCOUNTYPETE brought all kinds of weapons from handguns to AR-15 rifles and had lots of slides set up and covered shooting fundamentals, stance, form, grip, drills, problem solving and more.





Then he got us all up in groups for some dry firing.

Everyone there picked up something that will help us sharpen our skills. Lots of great information there!
Thanks again, Peter! We really appreciate everything you did for us today!

We gave out our raffle items and ended with a few rounds of Odds & Ends bingo. (Once again, there was not a trap set inside the bingo prize box. shocked )

Thanks to everyone who donated door prizes and raffle items and thanks to Minnesota Trapline Products for kicking in half for the gift certificate we give to our speaker!

With the small group and all of the work the restaurant was in the middle of, we hoped for a break even event. After we paid for a few prizes and our half of the gift certificate, we gave the Farm Kitchen $50 for opening just for our breakfast. (They had lots of food left over too.) We had a balance of $17, which I will deposit in the Trapperman Discretionary Fund bank account.

Food, friends, prizes and shooting tips! One heck of a morning! laugh

Just wanted to mention something funny that was happening throughout the breakfast - the Farm Kitchen is normally open to the public for a huge breakfast buffet on Sundays. They have been remodeling and closed for awhile except for a few private parties. Throughout the morning on Sunday, we had people who saw vehicles in the parking lot and drove in hoping the restaurant was open. People would wander in the door and see my "Welcome to the Trapperman Breakfast" sign and then see Peter's shooting slides up on the projector screen and guns all over the tables ... We got some pretty funny looks! laugh

so on the way home Jakob said "dad I had to help a lot of people fix their grip."

so grip is an issue for a lot of people and grip is such a big part of shooting handgun, often grip is your aim.

I think most everyone had it bey the time we had to leave but some visual guides to help you if you can't exactly remember

the test if your grip is correct is that you will close your eyes and push out on a target then open your eyes if your sights are not lined up adjust your grip so that the sights are lined up not necessarily on target but so that the front post sits in the rear notch. close your eyes and repeat

if you find your grip so that the sights are lined up and take a pen and make a dot on your hand where the center line of the gun is on the web of your hand between thumb and indexfinger

then take a look at where the center line if the guns trigget guard is on your middle finger make a dot on your finger when you change between guns with larger or smaller grips that dot on your middle finger will change some but the one on the web of your hand shouldn't

I try and get the the middle phalanges flat to the front of the grip most of the time , this may not work with everyone's hands but most people with average size hands it will , very small or very large hands will have to compensate find something that you can repeat





the yellow highlighted should be flat on the front of the grip on most auto pistols it may vary some more for revolvers this works most of the time because auto pistol cartridges are not very different in length 9 and 40 are the same 380 is a tiny bit shorter and 45 is only a little longer even 22lr is close in length.

the blue curved line should be where the back of the gun is sitting between the thumb and index finger and the center axis of the gun should fall about on the red line , you want it to point back towards your wrist the recoil travels in line with the sights down the center of the gun , it should go back into your wrist and down your arm if your wrist isn't lined up with the center axis of the gun then it is pushing your hand one way or the other and that hurts shot to shot recovery time.

once you have found your grip it is a matter of making it muscle memory. that is practice. it doesn't have to be live fire practice , getting your grip regular will help commit it to muscle memory.

if you don't know what your looking for when purchasing a new gun , go to the store handle them your trying to get your grip on each gun , some will fit well others won't make note of the ones that fit , narrow it down between them.
round 2 if you aren't already set on a caliber , it is better to error on the side of purchasing the gun that you can buy more a munition for than some thing that will be cost prohibitive to practice with
round 3 if you can find a friend who as what you are looking at ask if you can have them over to shoot and you buy a box of factory ammo and try it or a range where you can rent the guns on your short list.
round 4 if you just can't decide between 2 go parts and holster shopping. sometimes a more expensive gun costs less when you go to buy a holster or magazines.
if you make it to round 5 maybe you should just buy them both.

(At this point, I would like to give credit to Zim once again for suggesting Pete as our guest presenter this year. Yes, my Zim, you definitely called it!)

Need I say more? How about "THANK YOU AGAIN, GREENCOUNTYPETE!" Thank you for your attention to detail. You are a wealth of information.

a few other things that I forgot to talk about

if your going to carry a gun , you should carry a bright flashlight , very intense flashlights can now be had in very small packages I have a stream light protac 2AA that I carry almost everywhere it comes in at 155 lumens I also have a surefire G2 sure fire makes a great very very intense flashlight the G2 is 320 lumen the reason to carry a bright flashlight is firearms rule B be sure of your target. and it helps to see the racoon by the chicken coop and the sights.

that and having a flashlight always with you is so handy often it is just to see in a dark corner or drawer to find something but mine gets use nearly every day , part of why I carry the ProTac 2AA becuase it runs on 2 rechargeable batteries and I keep 2 more int he charger so the battery cost after the initial purchase of the charger and batteries is non existent till you have used the batteries for years your talking pennies a recharge over name brand AA batteries that are often 70 cents to 1.20 each
the surefire batteries are 2-3 dollars each often so you might have 4 - 6 dollars in batteries in your light at one time that adds up if you use it a lot.

Holsters , I said don't get your gun handling skills from TV same applies to holsters , TV producers are looking for cool looking and often cheap and those have nothing to do with a good holster.

not to say a holster has to be expensive. there are reasonably priced good holsters.

Alien gear holsters are reasonable priced quality holster at 43.88 that is generally the lower end of the holster price range there are a lot around 50-75 and you can easily spend 100 or more depending on what your looking for

there is a reason a lot of people end up with a box of holsters , first every bodies body is a bit different what is comfortable for one may not be for another , but often it is because they tried to go low cost. some companies now will give good returns on holsters up to 30 days.

beware of cheap , nylon and unsupported , a good holster should spread out the weight on your belt and move with you rather than flopping around with your gun and should not dump your gun if tipped upside down even with out a strap to hold it in.

all good holsters will cover the trigger guard , most should allow for one handed re-holstering

you can get fairly low cost pocket holsters but it's only job is really to cover the trigger in your pocket I prefer the Kydex pocket holsters as the neoprene type tend to make my leg sweat really bad under the gun.

if your going to be carrying it every day it has to be comfortable or your likely to stop carrying it.

sort of , but it was more of a counter terrorism seminar

didn't they learn that in Israel ,guy goes to shoot up a bus stop and some old lady shoots him in the back of the head before he can finish shouting out how he is going to kill everyone for his god.

the more good people we can make good pistol shooters and carriers the better.

It sure was nice, Cletis!

Thanks, Tendertoes!

Peter, I am now more obsessed than ever with the need to fire off numerous rounds. I will hold you responsible for the added expense. laugh

(Tell Theresa it was nice visiting with her!)

Patrice look into getting Snap Caps. You can get them for $10 avg on Amazon. They are caliber specific and brightly colored. Stay away from the pure silver ones (sliver case and silver bullet) they can be easily mistaken for real ammo which would create a bad situation.

Many drills can be done safely in your home, car etc...

I might have to look into that, Adam, especially if I run up too large of a bill blasting away out here. Thanks.
