Current Season of Sons of Guns

Sorry I don't know what season they are on or I would have added that to the title.


I still enjoy this show but I'm feeling like Will has let the producers/show interfere with his business and is just putting on a "show" now.

I'm just not buying this drama of Vince leaving and then Vince coming back...

I do love the explosions though!

I agree on both points (show, and drama). The "behind the scenes" episode made it even more clear that the line between what's real and what's scripted is a lot fuzzier than they'd want you to believe. There's a TON more that goes on which we never get to see (or is even hinted at).

I'm amazed at how much my wife (who doesn't like firearms) has become interested in the show.

I couldn't figure out if that behind the scenes was filmed before or after the Vince mess.

I love the weapons, hate the drama. I think that is why I like American Guns better. They don't have all this in-fighting.

I still watch every week, but roll my eyes when Will starts yelling at the cameraman, or they censor the word 'Elvis'.

I was guessing before, since if neither Kris nor Stephanie were wearing a wedding ring, and they got married at the same time as the whole Vince debacle.

I really liked tonight's episode. The beehive round was very cool.

Spoiler:
And I thought they were going to get the explosion from it


Also loved seeing Kari and Tory from the Mythbusters there. Looking forward to seeing Sons of Guns on their show.

I don't normally like "cross over" shows, but I enjoyed this. It didn't seem forced.

To me, it looked like the 2nd round (the rifle round) would have worked but the tracer rounds didn't look like they hit the tank.

Just saw the new season of Sons Of Guns starts March 21st. I thought it had been cancelled (aka not renewed), but it is back.

Discovery Channel, March 21st, 9PM ET.

I also thought it was cancelled. The owner is a real jerk, but I am curious to see where they are at now.

New season starts tonight.

According to the guide data, they are building a weaponized drone. That should be interesting.

I hope they concentrate more on the firearms than the drama, but since it is TV I doubt it.

I confused this show with the OTHER gun show from the people in Colorado.

Seems like these people are just as clueless as before. What I want to know is how does this small town support so many gun shops? With them, Vince's shop, and now Flem's shop, it seems like a lot for a small area. I realize they can sell nationwide, but how many people really are reaching out to them.

Well, I thought New Orleans is a rather big city, and I'm sure that can support 5 small gun shops. I'm pretty certain most other cities in the US have quite a few more. Heck, I'm sure in our city there's probably tons of gun shops and such (and I'm in Canada).

And I suspected Sons of Guns was going to be renewed - Discovery Canada has been showing snippets for ads and Sons of Guns has always been one of them showing what's on Discovery. I doubt they'd put on a show they knew was gone since there are many other shows they left out.

They're in Baton Rouge. http://www.redjacketfirearms.com/ The metro area population is around 800,000.

It seems like I missed an episode, or a discussion on the show about this, but what happened to Kris and Stephanie's business? Didn't they announce at the end of last season that they were leaving to start their own business?

The new season hasn't addressed it at all so far. They did mention Flem having his own shop.

I don't remember them saying they were going to leave, just that it would take some of their time away from the shop.

These are not really gun stores though. They are gun producers, i.e. they build guns. Sure they do a handful of one-offs, but it seems that they are/want to be a manufacturer.

I think their company was IAC (for it's a cannon). I can't seem to find it anywhere now. At the end of the last season when they were talking about it, they just seemed to sell shirts and a few accessories.

Yeah..that's how I remember it. I think they wanted time off to go to gun/trade shows and hawk their apparel.

http://www.iacgear.com/ Warning, it autoplays some music by Kris Ford.

Seems that it's mostly training, swag, and the aforementioned music. Probably more of a sideline.
