FAN FAVORITE "SONS OF GUNS" RETURN MEANS HIGHER STAKES AND MORE ACTION FOR THE CREW AT RED JACKET FIREARMS

- Series Returns to Discovery Channel on Wednesday, July 13th at 9PM ET/PT -

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Will Hayden and his team of gunsmiths at Baton Rouge-based Red Jacket Firearms are hired to do the impossible. Make an extremely rare Civil War cannon fire, 150 years after it last saw action. Create a twin M16 gun mount that can fire hundreds of rounds a minute within changing magazines for a Navy special teams boat gunner. Restore a flamethrower as a tribute to a WWII Marine Veteran and Medal of Honor recipient. All in a day's work for Hayden and his team who embrace the motto "If you can dream it, we can build it." This all-star team of craftsman are featured in Discovery Channel's hit series SONS OF GUNS, returning for a second season on Wednesday, July 13th at 9PM ET/PT.

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 enable police departments to be even more stealth in threatening situations. And when the sheriff's department needs to turn two guns - a shotgun and a rifle - into one, they call Will.

Keeping the bayou-based operation running is Will's daughter Stephanie. While she has been running the business side of things since the shop opened ten years ago, she is a weapons expert in her own right - and can out-shoot the best of them at the range.

In season two of SONS OF GUNS, Will, Stephanie and the crew of Red Jacket Firearms take on some of their toughest challenges yet. Can the team join three M16's together in what Will calls a Triamese? Is it possible to silence a grenade launcher? And what happens when the crew combines an AK and a sniper rifle?

In the first season of SONS OF GUNS, each premiere was watched by an average of 1.79 million people, making it one of the top five shows among men on Wednesday nights. In all of 1Q11, SONS OF GUNS finished as the #3 Wednesday night cable program among M25-54/M18-49 (excluding sports). Premieres of Sons of Guns averaged 1.29 HH / 0.83 P25-54 AA%.*

SONS OF GUNS is produced for Discovery Channel by Jupiter Entertainment. Stephen Land is executive producer, with Patrick Leigh-Bell as co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Dolores Gavin is executive producer.
