If you’re a gun owner and a fan of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” here's some good news to kick off the new year: A popular gunmaker has just launched a new line of firearms based on the hit TV show.
Duck Commander, the family-owned business featured on the show, and gun manufacturer Mossberg have teamed up to produce nine shotguns, two semiautomatic pistols and two semiautomatic rifle, CNN Money reported.
Company spokeswoman Linda Powell said Mossberg has already started shipping some of the shotguns to retailers. Firearms in the line range from $400 to $900.
Most of the guns come in a “waterfowl pattern” camouflage design, but not all of the guns are meant for duck hunting.
The Mossberg .22 pistol, for example, is "perfect for small game, plinking, target shooting -- or clearing cottonmouths out of your duck blind,” according to the gun manufacturer’s website.
“Mossberg is extremely proud to partner with Duck Commander to further promote hunting, shooting sports and family values,” Mossberg CEO Iver Mossberg said earlier when the partnership was first announced. “The Robertsons' widespread appeal and ability to cross over into the mainstream has bridged millions to the tradition of hunting and sharing time in the field with family.”
Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson added: “The Duck Commander franchise was built on hard work, family values and our great American heritage. As an iconic, hard-working American product, made by a family-owned company, Mossberg is a perfect partnership for our team.”
Mossberg is promoting the line of guns with video ads starring members of the Robertson family.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” the family’s patriarch, Phil Robertson, says in one of the four new ads. “That all men are created equal and that they’ve been endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. Those are rights that no government can take from you. To live, be free and pursue happiness.”
"Do you know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen?" he adds. "To blow a mallard drake's head smooth off."
Each purchase will come with an American flag bandana – just like the one worn by Willie Robertson.
