THE RED JACKET FIREARMS CREW RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON OF DISCOVERY'S ACTION-PACKED HIT SERIES "SONS OF GUNS"

- One-Hour Special GUNS OF GLORY to Air Thanksgiving Night at 10PM E/P -

Will Hayden and his team of gunsmiths at Baton Rouge-based Red Jacket Firearms are back for a third season of Discovery Channel's hit series SONS OF GUNS, returning Wednesday, December 7th at 9PM ET/PT. And on November 24th at 10PM ET/PT, count down with Will, Stephanie and the rest of the Red Jacket crew their top ten guns of all time in the one-hour special GUNS OF GLORY.

The Red Jacket Firearms crew doesn't shy away from a challenge. And this season is full of them. With the tragedy and hardship that's fallen on Louisiana over the last decade, Will Hayden feels a personal duty to give back to his home state. He decides to help arm a sheriff's patrol boat to protect the gulf coast - Red Jacket style - including a dual mount with a MARK 19 grenade launcher and a 240 Bravo machine gun.

Also this season, the all-star gunsmith crew is invited to help re-enact an attack on the USS Kidd, a decommissioned Fletcher Class Destroyer that saw action in the pacific theater during WWII, even experiencing damage from a Kamikaze attack. Now a floating museum, the Red Jacket team is asked to help bring the USS Kidd back to life by simulating an attack similar to the real one.

Will also gets to work on his number one gun on his bucket list - a World War I Maxim, a machine gun that according to Will made one soldier aseffective as 500. He and the team work to restore it and fire it through a propeller, like the World War I bi-planes - something that will take both time and skill.

Last season ended with Kris Ford asking Will if he could date his daughter Stephanie. Will answered with an ultimatum: he must choose between Red Jacket and his daughter. This season, his choice is revealed and everyone will feel the effect.

In its second season, SONS OF GUNS was the #1 ad-supported cable program among Men 18-49 and 18-34 delivery on Wednesday nights (excluding sports/specials). An average of 2.57 million people watched the premiere each week.

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.
