Duck Dynasty Family to Launch Gun Line

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Duck Dynasty‘s Robertson family is launching its own line of camouflage-designed shotguns under their company Duck Commander, according to reports.

Duck Commander, founded in 1972 by Phil Robertson and developed into a multi-million enterprise under Willie Robertson, has partnered with gunmaker Mossberg.

The company will release nine different models, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol. Phil and sons will appear in ads for the items.

Phil reportedly narrates one of the ads saying, “Do you know what makes me happy ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake’s head smooth off.”

That's Phil Robertson for you ... unfiltered and unafraid to ruffle feathers (or blow them off a bird in a hail of bullets) with his comments or firearms.

The website says all the firearms will come with an American flag bandana, a staple of Boss Hog Willie Robertson as any Duck Dynasty fan knows.

The company hasn’t announced which stores will be carry the guns, only that shipments to distributors have already start and that prices will start at $500.

Though the family's Duck Commander brand is centered around duck hunting gear, the semi-auto rifles and pistols are not typically used in the sport.

The company notes, however, that the pistol can be used for “small game, plinking, target shooting, or clearing cottonmouths out of your duck blind."

Duck Dynasty came under fire recently for Phil Robertson criticizing gays and gay sex and making racially insensitive remarks in the new issue of GQ.

After initially suspending him and receiving a barrage of criticism from fans and Robertson supporters, A&E announced that the show will go on, with Phil.

Appearing with wife Korie Robertson on Fox News Tuesday night, Willie said the family learned a lot from the controversy, but is excited to be back.

Duck Dynasty returns January 15 on A&E, and for better or worse, you can expect that the Robertson clan will continue to unabashedly do its thing.
