Sons of Guns

Sons of Guns Cast

Series Description


Sons of Guns is a 30 minute reality series on the Discovery Channel about an out of the ordinary weapons company called "Red Jacket" that is located in Louisiana and buys, sells, repairs and customizes just about anything that can be called a weapon. Many of the episodes concentrate on military style weapons like rifles, canons and machine guns but everything from knives on up are thrown in for good measure. The personal relationships between the staff at Red Jacket is also a common theme.

Sons of Guns Trivia

Several other shows on television about weapons have felt the need to go on and on about how they can be used for evil but Sons of Guns doesn't play that game. The only thing they've said that can be considered a warning is, "Guns can be dangerous. Don't be an idiot".

In 2009, according to a report by TMZ, a routine inspection by the ATF found that 10 guns registered to Red Jacket could not be accounted for. In an article by WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Red Jacket's Lawyer stated that one or two of them had been stolen and the others were thrown away when gunsmiths made mistakes while working on them. The proper paperwork was not done however so William and Stephanie Hayden had to surrender their gun-making licenses and appoint someone else to run Red Jacket for them.

On the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks a Sons of Guns crew member made a really stupid mistake. He parked a rental truck full of automatic weapons and bomb-like materials in front of the Dallas/Fort Worth airport and some witnesses say he left it unattended! Of course, the authorities were on high alert that day. When someone asked him what was in the truck he responded, "I got a couple of Guns". When authorities saw the first automatic weapon, a bomb squad and explosive-sniffing dogs were brought in. A portion of terminal B was shut down for several hours while the FBI investigated. An executive of the production company said it was, "a simple yet colossal error in judgement by a member of our staff".

On the ninth episode of season one, the Sons of Guns staff did a prop gun project for an upcoming 2012 movie titled, "The Courier". Kris Ford was lucky enough to be invited to make an appearance in that film!

The Red Jacket crew also appeared on the second season episode of "American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior" titled, "Big Guns" where they helped with the design of a dragon-themed machine gun style motorcycle.
