TV Star Jesse James to Appear at the 2015 Great American Outdoor Show
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Jesse James, TV star and founder of popular clothing and custom motorcycle manufacturer West Coast Choppers, is joining a growing list of celebrities attending the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA. James will greet fans and sign autographs February 11th and 12th from 2:30pm – 4:30pm in the Small Arena and attend The NRA Foundation Banquet the evening of February 12th. James, who became a household name because of his skill in building custom choppers, was inspired by his passion for firearms in 2012. So, he began applying his signature craftsmanship to manufacturing firearms and launched Jesse James Firearms Unlimited (JJFU) to focus on creating skillfully crafted and highly customizable guns for law enforcement, military, and individual use. Additionally, James has turned his design capabilities on creating a revolutionary patented sound suppressor design, JJFU’s Aero-Sonic Sound Suppressor.
"I have been really lucky in life to be able to follow my passion of creating things with my hands. I'm now building handmade firearms, and it feels like this is my real calling," said Jesse James. "Being able to do what I love and support my family is what the American Dream is all about. These freedoms are one of the most valuable things in my life. This is why I am proud to support the organization that fights for these rights. This is why I am excited to support the NRA and attendees at the Great American Outdoor Show."
Besides Jesse James, the 2015 Great American Outdoor Show will feature a host of other outdoor celebrities including NRA All Access host and professional shooter Jessie Duff and shooting legend Doug Koenig, who will teach the secrets to their success at the February 9th and 10th “Shoot Like A Pro” demonstration on a state of the art shooting simulator. Attendees to this year’s show will be able to meet Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo, Michael Waddell, Hank Parker, Craig Boddington, David Blanton, the Keefer Brothers, and a host of other renowned names.
“The Great American Outdoor Show is the perfect venue to showcase fresh faces and fan favorite outdoor personalities while celebrating our rich heritage for hunting, fishing, the shooting sports, and other outdoor activities,” said Executive Director of NRA General Operations Kyle Weaver. “We had a very successful show with record attendance last year and the NRA has built on those successes and made improvements to make 2015 the best Great American Outdoor Show to date.”
The Great American Outdoor Show celebrates the outdoor traditions treasured by millions of Americans and their families in a 650,000 square foot exhibit space that will feature nearly 1,100 exhibitors, including shooting manufacturers, outfitters, boat and RV dealers, hunting and fishing retailers, and much more.
