SONS OF GUNS centers on Will's Red Jacket shop, located in the heart of the Louisiana bayou.

Whether it's having a lunch break shooting contest, going on a nighttime bayou bow fishing trip or field testing a fully automatic M2 .50 caliber machine gun, viewers will catch the Red Jacket team always finding time to have some fun on SONS OF GUNS.

Will, who has a sweet spot for historical firearms, can't help himself and buys the gun... even though it doesn't fire. Will tells Vince to fix the gun so it will fire and triple the gun's value. And a customer walks in with a right-handed AR 15, but he is left-handed shooter. He wants the action of the gun changed to fit his left-handed needs. Of course, Will and his team are just the guys to get all this done.
