I met these badass future gunsmiths today. It’s pretty inspiring. They joined the Marine Corp and are about halfway through their initial gunsmith schooling. On their way to building some precision weapons for this country’s Finest. I’m Proud to be Red White & Blue 🇺🇸 #SemperFi #jessejames (at Marine Corps Base Quantico)
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

It seems like a lifetime ago but this photo is one of the final classes I taught as a hand-to-hand combat instructor in the Marines.
Serving my country was a life-changing experience for me. It was during those years that I realized the importance of commitment, dedication, honor, and discipline. I made life-long friends and the heroes I served with helped shape me into the man I am today.
I feel honored to have been a part of such a great tradition and grateful to others who have walked the same path.
Nice to have some Marines from a Fort Sam Houston come by the Lab today. I love to see the reactions of Real Shooters when they put their hands on, and shoot #JJFU guns. I especially liked their reactions to the Nomad with a Aero-Sonic, The lack of sound, and accuracy had them smiling. Made my day! #SemperFi #DevilDogs #jessejames #madeintexas (at Austin Texas)
Let this OG US Marine have a go at a Fresh #JJFU Cisco Jr I just finished. He Loved it! The first pistol he ever shot was a M1911 in 1969 at Camp Pendleton Boot Camp. Oh Yea he’s also one of the best tattoo artists in the world –> Jack Rudy @j_rudy_gtc www.JJFU.com #jessejames #Madeintexas #DevilDog #Semperfi #USMC (at TX Hill Country)
