Sons of Guns, the Red Jacket Firearms TV SHOW on DISCOVERY CHANNEL. Look for “Sons of Guns” (Wednesday, January 26 at 9:00/8:00c), which follows Will Hayden and his company (Steph,Joe,Vince,Kris and Charlie); Red Jacket, considered “the nation’s most unique weapons business”.
“If you can dream it, we can build it” is the motto at Red Jacket, the nation’s most unique weapons business. Owner Will Hayden and his eclectic crew of Baton Rouge, Louisiana gunsmiths and historians rise to the challenge daily on Discovery Channel’s world premiere series SONS OF GUNS, creating one-of-a-kind custom weapons. The show fires off on Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT, starting January 26.
As a straight shooter and an avid historian, Will is a trusted expert to handle the requests of Red Jacket’s major clients – law enforcement, military and collectors. From guns to knives to swords to cannons, Will sells, trades, buys, builds and customizes them all. While weapons manufacturers are making attachable silencers for AK-47’s, Will takes it a step further — creating internal silencers that help police departments be even more stealth in threatening situations. If someone needs to restore a WWII flamethrower to make it operational, Will can do that too. And when the sheriff’s department needs to turn two guns – a shotgun and a rifle – into one, they call Will.
SONS OF GUNS centers on Will’s Red Jacket shop, located in the heart of the Louisiana bayou. When Will isn’t rebuilding a “bring-back” rifle from the Vietnam War or using his wealth of weapon history knowledge to determine if a pistol found in the attic is an antique or not, he can be found in his shop with his daughter Stephanie and the rest of his team, swapping gossip with his customers. Whether it’s having a lunch break shooting contest, going on a nighttime bayou bow fishing trip or field testing a fully automatic M2 .50 caliber machine gun, viewers will catch the Red Jacket team always finding time to have some fun on SONS OF GUNS.
SONS OF GUNS is produced for Discovery Channel by Jupiter Entertainment. Stephen Land is executive producer, with Patrick Leigh-Bell and Stephanie Buxbaum as co-executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Dolores Gavin is executive producer.
