"Sons of Guns" on Discovery Channel

Has anyone watched this show? It's about a gunshop out in the Bayou called Red Jacket Arms. Last episode they featured a Congressional Medal of Honor winner and they fixed up a flamethrower for him and here was this guy who I believe was 80 getting all excited about using this flamethrower he had used in WWII.

I guess the draw for most men would be the attractive daughter named, Stephanie Hayden. She's a raven-haired girl who has been handling guns since she was 7. She's not just a pretty face, she's quite knowledgeable about guns and she has a business head. Kind of the business manager of the storefront.

I was surprised this show already has 2 million viewers and it became so popular so quickly.

Next episode is on Wednesday at 9 pm EST by me.

Being ex military and an arm chair war historian.

I will watch anything concerning various weapons and armament.

So I have watched every episode and really enjoy the show.

But the owners daughter Stephanie is just a spoiled brat and takes away from the theme of the show.

Awesome show! i checked out their website and some of the guns they've made on the show are available for sale, like the suppressed shotgun for $2600.

I happened to catch last week's episode as well.

Though I'm really more interested in Top Shots Reloaded which started last Tuesday. Second episode is airing tonight at 10pm.

What's not to like?
Its a show about guns.
Its a show about a successful small business that is dedicated to customer service.
Its a show about guns.
Its a show about a girl who is cute in a truck stop waitress kind of way.

Whaoh!!! I like the show...Doesn't everyone need to know how to assemble a machine gun?Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.

BUT!!!! Sorry PC .. the chick is not pretty or cute..or hot. She is homely. Extremely so. She is nice and has a great business sense. But the OVERBITE??? She reminds me of a farm girl that lived nearby our farm up on Orcas Island. She was always trying to get me alone in her barn. Scary overbite.. I still have nightmares about it.

It's the girl's strained cat scratch voice, combined with her haughty attitude, that grates on my nerves. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.


btw A suppressed shotgun doesn't make a lick of sense for either tactical or home defense.

Because you want the loud blast in order to frighten or scare off your enemy/attacker. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.

I disagree. The "all hell breaks loose" theory on repelling an intruder or MORE intruders is highly over rated. The shortened shotgun barrel provides an efficient close range kill. The noise suppression is a big advantage in that you the defender of your space might not want to go deaf, even short term, while seeking out all of the perps.

Interesting to see that while you might like the show, you're not necessarily fans of Stephanie Hayden. My husband concurs. He thinks she's not that pretty either. Here's an interesting interview with Stephanie if anyone is interested: "Sons Of Guns" Star Talks Shop | Girl's Guide to Guns

Looking forward to tonight's show.

I think women like her because she is partners with her dad and I believe many girls would like to get the appreciation and respect for her judgment she receives from her father.

The Discovery Channel has been running a series of "regular Americans" with interesting and sometimes dangerous jobs focusing on the relationships of the real characters. "Deadliest Catch" was good until the best captain died.. "American Chopper" was a train wreck just waiting to happen....it did. "Dirtiest Jobs" is just soft porn. EVERYTHING has a sexual connotation to the host. "Cash Cab" is just a game show .. The novelty has worn off long ago for me because I hate game shows. The only reason I tolerated it for a minute was that there was no chimpanzee filled peanut gallery screaming in the background.

This gun show is cool because I like weapons but eventually some yahoo will copy and use the video "instruction manual" in his basement and build something dangerous...and use it.

DC will then get boycotted and they will have to pull the show.

I like the show but, Stephanie gets on my nerves too, her claims of knowing more about guns than most people that walk through their doors is BS. When a person has to brag how much they know in reality they know about a 1/4 of what they think they know.

Will seems like he knows his stuff, my only kick on him is he would be heck to work for with that smart mouth of his.

Has anyone watched this show? It's about a gunshop out in the Bayou called Red Jacket Arms. Last episode they featured a Congressional Medal of Honor winner and they fixed up a flamethrower for him and here was this guy who I believe was 80 getting all excited about using this flamethrower he had used in WWII.

I guess the draw for most men would be the attractive daughter named, Stephanie Hayden. She's a raven-haired girl who has been handling guns since she was 7. She's not just a pretty face, she's quite knowledgeable about guns and she has a business head. Kind of the business manager of the storefront.

I was surprised this show already has 2 million viewers and it became so popular so quickly.

Next episode is on Wednesday at 9 pm EST by me.
It's the guns babe....not the bigguns.

I like what they do with weapons.

Business head yes, fire arm knowledge, not so much. I have seen 4 Red Jacket guns, 3 were shot guns built on an AK plat form. They are beasts for sure and fun as hell to shoot. The last gun was an AK that was built from a parts kit. It was a nice accurate (for an AK) gun. I am not a big fan of the show, but do watch it when they have something new and weird like the old Sharps rifle with the coffee grinder in its stock. The flame thrower was cool.

Thats a rip off unless it includes the cost of the NFA ticket too.
