UPDATE 1/28/2015 12:00 MST: Jesse James has backed out. The following messages were posted to Facebook by Brent Taylor, the Director of Marketing at Liberty Suppressors, and reposted here with permission.
And Jesse James accepted. Check this out.
Jesse James of Jesse James Firearms Unlimited has accepted our offer and we plan on flying out to Austin for a good old fashioned Texas style shoot out. We’ll be shooting at targets, though.
Thank you Jesse for accepting our offer. We look forward to any opportunity to visit Texas.
If you don’t know what’s going on, here’s a high level overview: Jesse James Firearms Unlimited (JJFU) recently launched a $4,500 suppressor called the Areo Sonic, shown below. JJFU claims on their website that the Aero Sonic measures 78 decibels at the muzzle with 5.56 ammo, though they did not specify which load. If memory serves, 78 decibels is ~30 decibels QUIETER than the bolt closing on an AR-15, which has led some to call BS on JJFU’s claims.
I for one am looking forward to seeing how this turns out!
Thanks to my buddy Nam for the heads up!
