Watch Sons of Guns Season 4 Episode 4 - Online in HD Video. shop swapping gossip with his customers that range from housewives to members of the SWAT team. Will, his daughter Stephanie, and the rest of his crew, race to keep up with the demands of their clientèle and turn out top notch weapons. But 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. Will is invited to discuss business with the King of Jordan; Kris and Stephanie are left to look over Red Jacket and rebuild a 20mm Solothurn cannon.
This week, the new season began on Sons of Guns, the story of Red Jacket Firearms, a gun modification firm located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This year, as was last, seems to have the subplot of the continuing romance between Stephanie Hayden and Kris Ford. For those of you who have lost the thread of this plot, it goes something like this.
Kris met Stephanie at a party in 2009. I assume that alcohol was heavily imbibed during this raucous event, but that just might be my impression of Kris and the source of his charm. Anyway, Stephanie was apparently smitten with the lad, and offered him a job as an apprentice at Red Jacket, the firm owned by her father, Will Hayden, and herself. Even though Kris had little or no knowledge or aptitude of anything mechanical, he jumped at the chance to be near the winsome lass.
Soon, thereafter, the firm became the subject of a television show on the Discovery channel (Wednesdays, 9:00 eastern). The first two seasons were incredibly good, teaching viewers a lot about firearms of all types. It emphasized how weapons could be modified to be more useful for particular situations encountered by the military or different police agencies.
Unfortunately, last season, there was a plot twist where Kris and Stephanie began dating. Since this is Louisiana, after all, Will decided that the ability to satisfy his daughter’s needs was sufficient to promote the clueless Kris from apprentice to project manager. Kris, since this is Louisiana, then decided that since he was now a boss, he therefore knew everything about gunsmithing. For some reason, this alienated the actual gunsmith, Vince Buckles. At the end of last season, Vince abruptly left, having been blamed for all of Kris incompetent actions in an important build. Vince has now started his own firm, Mesa Kinetic Research.
Well, at the end of last season, Will, Stephanie, and Kris got together in front of a Las Vegas chapel. It was revealed in Wednesday’s episode that the two lovers had indeed wed in Vegas, securing Kris as a project leader for the company. There are a lot of questions remaining to be resolved this season. Unfortunately, few of these queries actually involve guns. Can Kris learn that it probably isn’t wise to pull the pin on a grenade while holding it in his hands, as he did in this week’s episode? How important is it to remain at least marginally sober when testing guns, even in Baton Rouge? Why does Stephanie, one of the more eye-catching women on a reality program, find the dissolute Kris even slightly attractive?
I’ll be doing an update in a few months at the end of the season.
Will Hayden and his team of gunsmiths at Baton Rouge-based Red Jacket Firearms are back for an all-new season of Discovery Channel's hit series SONS OF GUNS, returning Wednesday, February 29th at 9PM ET/PT. And at 10PM, after the season premiere, join Hayden and AMERICAN GUNS' Rich Wyatt as they count down ten iconic American shootouts — from Wild West standoffs to mob hits to world war — in the one-hour special TOP 10 SHOOTOUTS. Firing historic weapons, they give rare insight into the guns — and their owners — that changed history.
In this season of SONS OF GUNS, gunsmith Vince Buckles is still missing from Red Jacket after several disputes finally forced him to leave the shop. But the orders keep pouring in, and Will and crew work night and day to keep up. But in true Red Jacket fashion, they also find some time to have a little fun when bike legend Jesse James and music legend Joe Perry drop by the shop. And Will gets back to the basics as he spends more hands-on time with his builds.
