Overview

Sons of Guns: Straight-Shootin' Stories from the Star of the Hit Discovery Series by Will Hayden

Sons of Guns is the official tie-in to Discovery's hit show starring Will Hayden, founder and owner of Red Jacket Firearms, the Louisiana-based family business which has been called the nation's most unique custom weapons shop. 

With characteristic down-home wit and wisdom, Hayden tells the stories behind some of the best episodes of the show. He talks about his all-time favorite weapons, what it takes to modify a normal, run-of-the-mill rifle into a world-class work of art, guns in America (their construction, their history, and using them responsibly), and the trials and tribulations of creating a successful family-owned firearms business.

If there's one thing folks from Louisiana can do, says Hayden, it's tell a hell of a story.  Sons of Guns is the next best thing to sitting around the campfire with Hayden and his crew, listening to him recount his favorites.

About the Author

Will Hayden is the founder and owner of Red Jacket Firearms and star of the hit Discovery series Sons of Guns. He opened his custom firearms business in 1999, and his daughter, Stephanie, came on as a business manager and partner in 2003. The partnership has led to Red Jacket's continued success as "the nation's most unique weapons business." When he's not in front of the Sons of Guns cameras, Will likes to take his team on road trips and go backcountry hiking and elk hunting with his daughter.
