Jim started JAFEICA Publishing back in 1992, authoring four books in both the printed format and the CD format. Jim also made several DVDs during classes he was holding at the time in Wisconsin. Although each of these DVDs has very useful information, and are entertaining, they are outdated and Jim will not be remaking them. Since all four of the original books have had a complete make over, we are offering you a chance to see some of the videos and get a FREE copy of an associated book.

Fun Facts:
JAFEICA stands for "Just Another F'ing Expense I Can't Afford"

Jim's website was first launched in 1998

I read the first four chapters of "Sight Alignment, Trigger Control and the Big Lie" one time and I picked up 50 points in my next match!

Good morning sir,

I received your no pulse sling on Saturday. I've only been able to do some dry firing with it so far, but I'm glad I made the purchase. First impression is that prep time will be a lot simpler as far as managing the rifle and all. Prone position feels solid, and contrary to what I thought before I spoke with you, there is plenty of length in the top strap.

Thanks again for taking the time to explain the idea to me over the phone, and for providing a great product.
