Since When is it Friday?

I guess 4 days of filming — 2 for SG; 2 for TBD — and a travel day in the middle pretty much takes care of the week. The days were long, and I just went to bed. Sorry.

I will say the Kodabow crossbow is just the bee's knees! It's like the shooting equivalent of cant just shoot one bolt. We were all amazed at how hard this thing hits...the bolts went roughly 60 percent into the target (a standard Bulldog arrow target). I'll have it in Phoenix next week, and maybe we can get some audience members on it.



And while I'm thinking about it, I note that Jesse James, the motorcycle Jesse James, is launching his Jesse James Firearms Unlimited in Austin this month:
Following in the footsteps of his worldwide success with West Coast Choppers, Jesse James Firearms Unlimited brings his renowned level of craftsmanship and detail to a new industry and product. "It's taking the same theory behind my world-famous bikes and applying it to another passion of mine, which is guns," he explains.  
 Jesse James Firearms Unlimited will debut with an initial offering of a 1911 pistol and an AR-15 rifle. The guns will be available for purchase as early as January 2014 online at Ultimately, the brand will offer a full span of guns that appeal to military and law enforcement as well as to the individual gun enthusiast.
Sounds cool to me! We'll keep you posted...especially if we can get painted on flames! I like flames.

A Ruger giveaway maybe?!?! SWEET!
SR762? SR1911?
(I'd like mine in CMD trim)

I've always thought of you as "Uncle Mike" so if you want to keep it in the family....
Your nephew you didn't know you had,

RE.: "Jesse James Guns"; Any supporter of the Second Amendment is a friend of ours here. I wish him good luck. I'm just not confident that he'll follow-thru here though. All of his other business and personal ventures just fizzled-out.

Anyhow, welcome aboard and good luck.

Yep. I want more folks like Jesse James as the public face of gun owners. Drug addled sex perverts with rap sheets measured in feet should be the role models for our sons and daughters. Can't wait for your glowing review MB.

What model was that crossbow?

The Koda-Express 185.

In the back of my head I'm thinking about taking this crossbow to Africa. Chuck Matasic, the creator of the Kodabow, is a big Africa hunter, and he and I are going to have a long talk at SHOT.

Jesse James? Really? Maybe if we're really lucky, the Teutuls will start making guns, too.

Ugh. This country becomes more "Idiocracy" every day. We should replace the stars in the flag with douchebags just to make it official.

I've seen a couple of James custom bikes close up. Perhaps his new venture should join the Freedom Group to maintain that fine level of quality control.

If the quality of J.J.'s firearms is on par with the demonstrated quality of hie bikes, I'll pass.
