Sons of Guns

Other than cars and beautiful women, I also love GUNS!  Naturally, it was a given that the new reality show Sons of Guns caught my attention and I was instantly glued!

The show chronicles the daily business of Will Hayden and his Red Jacket Firearms in Baton Rougue, Louisiana.  Red Jacket is a custom gun shop who has established itself as a major resouce for AK47 enthusiasts.  Their expertise in this type of assault firearm platform comes to fore in episode 6 when they incorporated a suppressor system in an AK47---something that was deemed impossible until Red Jacket made it a reality.  They are innovators in the field of gun restoration/modification may it be old or new.  They've put to life an 1800's cannon, a World War 2 flame thrower and bazooka, and even gave the classic Tommy Gun it's modern look.

Their motto, "if you can dream it, we can build it".

For a crew of 7, Red Jacket is one productive unit!
