A company owned by the family that stars in the hit reality show Ducky Dynasty is rolling out its own brand of guns.

Duck Commander, the company founded four decades ago by Phil Robertson, joined gun maker Mossberg to offer a line of nine shotguns, a semiautomatic pistol, and two semiautomatic rifles, CNN reports. Robertson, who was temporarily suspended from the show by A&E late last month after making anti-gay remarks, joins members of the family in commercials posted to the Mossberg site.

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

Duck Commander has grown into a $400 million company, according to Forbes, selling duck calls and other paraphernalia. A spokesperson told CNN that the company has begun delivering the guns to still-unnamed retailers.

These guns are made in Mexico. How "patriotic" is that?

Let's start with the fact that this is not new news.  This deal was announced nearly two months ago.  TIME and others only care about it now because of the Phil Robertson "controversy."


The rest of this is basically poor reporting.  Duck Commander is not rolling out its own brand of guns.  The brand is Mossberg, a firearms company that has been around since 1919.  These are Duck Commander "branded" in that they are current Mossberg models with the Duck Commander logo.  I would not call that "rolling out their own brand."  This isn't really any different than their previous endorsement of Benelli (you progressives will probably need to Google that).


What I find extremely telling is that in the video clip they chose to show the two guns that look most like "assault weapons" when there are 9 shotguns in the line, but only two semi automatic rifles and one pistol.  That only serves to encourage ignorant statements like aztecian who said  "this is ridiculous.  since when do you need semi-automatic rifles to hunt ducks."

Mossberg is making pistols?

I don't think I'd want a gimmick-gun. But I suppose all the people with Bear Grylls Gerber knives will be running to the gun shops. God bless the lemmings.

Bet half the profits are going to A&E.

Oh my god!  A hunting family promotes guns. They should be stopped. They shouldn't be allowed. This is more than Hate Speech, this is hate action.  This is somehow racist. Are they offering guns at a discount to poor people? NO!  They are discriminating against poor duck and squirrel hunters.  The government should step in and do something about this.

@SeattleAD I think that the majority of the country would probably feel you and your "culture" are probably more disgusting and scary.   I mean my kids can watch Duck Dynasty, but I fear many a question and some strange looks from them if exposed to progressive "normal" life styles.  I'm certainly not knocking anyone or their personal choice and free will to do it, but one should not throw stones in glass houses.  Accept diversity, SeattleAD.   Not everyone thinks and lives to YOUR standard.  Isn't that what diversity is all about?

@SeattleADjust because you don't hunt, don't let your self righteous ignorance get the best of you...too late

@SeattleAD What is disgusting? Their religious beliefs? Or that they are hunters?  Could you be a little more narrow minded and condescending?

@aztecian  Rabbits, squirrles, gators, bevers, prarie dogs or simply paper or metal targets.

Not sure ow this is "Ridiculous" because they aren't being sold as or called "Duck Hunting" firearms.  You hunt ducks with Shotguns.  Duck Commander isn't only ducks you know, Maybe you haven't researched these people and their other chain called "buck commander" where they have been doing the same thing with land animal hunting for at least 10 years that i can remember (i have some of their VCR movies).  

Although 2 or 3 may look "SCARY" they are only .22lr rimfires (teeny tiny) opposed people like you not being scared of the shotguns which are so much more powerful its shocking but you focus on appearance much like leftist news and putting facts aside.

@aztecianI highly doubt you have even fired a gun in all your life, but by all means tell the hunters what they do and don not need

@aztecian You do know that most shotguns used for duck hunting are semi-autos, right?  Why does BMW make bikes?  We call that diversification in the business world.

@aztecian@SeattleAD Scary how?  completely normal god loving Americans.  Im also saying this as a born and raised Southern Californian LOL.    Funny people that "Fear" people that look like these people are just so tolerant and diverse yet obviously have never been to the VFA, worked with veterans, fished, hunted or even just flying RC airplanes.  Very normal people.

Giving SeattleAd the benefit of the doubt, he/she might be talking about their hygiene. If that's the case, it's tough to argue given the rumor, started by Willie, that Si hasn't washed his beard since the 70s. LOL!

@TeriOwen@aztecianoh yeah sure...you need assault rifles to kill squirrels.  this is ridiculous.  i guess you hunt your squirrel in afghanistan!

@aztecian @JohnDavidDeatherage What is a "banana" magazine?  LOL.  Does it hold bananas?  Jeez, if you are going to be "against something" at least have the decency to know the nomenclature and terms.  The same reason I don't comment on gay marriage.  I don't know anything about it, don't want to, and it's really none of my business.  Take a hint.
