After moving to Dripping Springs just outside Austin, Texas and branching into building custom pistols and rifles as Jesse James Firearms Unlimited, the motorcycle builder and self-proclaimed Pope of Welding has inked a deal with the National Rifle Association.

“I am a lifetime NRA member,” Jesse James said. “I am very proud to have this partnership with an organization with such deep Americana roots. My main goal with NRA Originals is to create products that embrace that American lifestyle and celebrate the support of the Second Amendment.”

The NRA announced they had inked a deal with James to create a line of apparel emblazoned with the NRA brand.

“The NRA is excited about Jesse’s NRA Originals line of products and what it brings to the organization. We feel even more fortunate to have him with us in this fight for freedom,” said Kyle Weaver, the NRA’s Executive Director.

James, an avid supporter of the organization, was on season 5 of the show NRA All Access where he talked about how he applies his skills and talents to the firearms industry.

The NRA was founded on the principle of marksmanship training in 1871 and continues to emphasize gun safety, firearm education and training to this day.
