Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was the scene of the most climatic battle of the Civil War.

During this conflict, over 90,000 Union and 70,000 Confederate troops met in what would be the turning point of that great conflict. That battle saw each side receive over 23,000 casu- alties. On the third day of the battle, at around 1:00 p.m., 150 to 170 Confederate guns began an artillery bombardment of the Union lines in what was perhaps the largest of the war. In short order, 80 Union cannons answered that bombardment until 3:00 p.m. When the cannon fire subsided, 12,500 Confederate soldiers stepped from the ridgeline and advanced the three quarters of a mile to Cemetery Ridge in what is known to history as “Pickett’s Charge.” The Confederates suffered a casualty rate over 50 percent, losing over 6,000 men, many of whom were lost to Union cannon fire.

For a location revered in the annals of his- tory as the pivotal moment that changed the prospects for the war, due in large part to the amount of explosives used on the battlefield, it seems appropriate to house an explosives business there. Tripwire Operations Group is proud to call Gettysburg home.

First responders

Tripwire Operations Group is a company founded and run by first responders who are dedicated to ensuring that first responders have all the training and skills necessary to keep America safe. The staff at Tripwire believes that “the most highly trained create a safer America.”

Tripwire provides a full range of services for first responders and those tasked with protecting people. These services include a research, de velopment and evaluation division, an explosives sales and training division, K9 training and its new special effects division. If a first responder needs it, Tripwire might be able to provide it.

Firearms & more

Tripwire holds a Class 3 ATF license allowing the company to create and manufacture different variations of firearms for first responders.

Explosives and guns go hand in hand, and Group offers training in both to help first responders save lives.

Some of the unique items Tripwire has created include the Posi-Lock Chassis, fitted to the Remington 700 action, which was designed from the ground up for stability and adaptability. It weighs only 3.06 pounds and accepts the LEAP stock or any collapsible AR-15 stock. It’s also customizable with AR-15 trigger guards and grips. The body of the chassis incorporates two integral Picatinny rail sections. The one at the forward end of the chassis is intended for a bipod as well as a 3-inch-wide block for F Class bench shooters. For a hunting chassis you could attach a sling swivel. This stock also features an integrated magazine well that accepts magazines from Accuracy International and Accurate Mag. The chassis is machined to 0.03 inches of linear movement for the bolt, so the recoil lug will make a positive lock against the lug wall, and the surface has been hardcoat anodized per military specifications, making it stable and abrasion resistance.

The LEAP stock from Tripwire is made in the U.S.A. and is the one of the lightest, ergonomic, adjustable precision stocks I found on the market to date. The stock is made entirely of 6061-T6 aluminum with a military grade hard coat anodizing. At only 28 ounces overall and 70 percent of the weight at the shoulder end of the buffer tube, the LEAP stock can offer better balance for longer and heavier barrels.


Tripwire is one of the few ATF licensed explosive materials manufacturers, importers, exporters and dealers in the country. Tripwire’s catalog includes detonators and detonating cord, shock tube, safety fuse, cast boosters, electric matches, plastic bonded explosives, dynamite, TNT, jet perforators, Watergel, Kinepak, TexPak, ANFO and explosive range materials and equipment. These materials go hand in hand with Tripwire’s extensive explosives training offerings, which include training for explosives use and handling, explosives detection, explosives breaching and K9 handler explosive detection.

Sehoy Tactical

In addition to Tripwire’s extensive train- ing facility in Gettysburg, Tripwire has part- nered with Sehoy Tactical, which offers 25,000 acres of diverse training grounds. On this training compound is a 1-mile airstrip certified for planes as large as a C-130 as well two aircraft hangars capable of housing one large and several small aircraft/UAVs. Sehoy also has a 440-acre, deep water lake capable of accommodating waterborne operations from water landings, airborne training and recovery operations to diving certifications. Sehoy has numerous large open areas suitable for small to medium scale airborne, military free-fall and pathfinder operations. Sehoy also offers accommodations for tests and evaluations on almost any scales.

Since 2005, Tripwire has provided explosives-related training and products to the Department of Defense, many federal law enforcement agencies and hundreds of state and local government agencies. Some of the company’s key clients include the U. S. Department of Defense, the ATF, the FBI, the Secret Service, the Virginia State Police and the New Jersey State Police. Combined, Tripwire has over 100 years of experience in law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical service, hazmat, SWAT/SRT, corporate security and bomb squad functions. This is why over 10,000 first responders have come to Tripwire to ensure that have what they need to best protect America. For more information, visit tripwireops.org or call 888-330-7015.

Borehole Layout
The “Borehole Lay out” system makes the tedious task of laying out a job’s boreholes as easy as dragging your finger to connect the holes and assign your custom delays. It allows blasters to lay out their hole design and timing in seconds rather than hours. Share your layout with your team or print it by exporting it from the app. Exported layouts can then be imported on another device running Blaster’s App or printed out to share with your team or inspectors. It’s that easy.

Store Projects
Blaster’s App contains a project system that allows for the storage of all calculations and layouts associated to any job. Set GPS coordinates for your projects and the app will automatically look them up when you arrive on site and use that location’s project by default.
