"If you can dream it, we can build it" is Red Jacket's motto. Straight shooter and avid historian Will Hayden and his eclectic crew of Baton Rouge, Louisiana gunsmiths and historians rise to the challenge daily. Trusted experts they handle the requests of customers Law Enforcement, Military and Collectors. Guns, knives, swords and cannons, Will sells, trades, buys, builds and customizes them all.
Twenty-eight-year-old Kris Ford has spent the last year working his way up the ladder at Red Jacket. Despite coming from a family of hunters and gun enthusiasts, Kris didn't consider himself a gun person. That all changed in 2009. That year, Kris met Will's daughter Stephanie Hayden at a party. Kris was in need of a job and Stephanie offered him an apprenticeship at Red Jacket. He started out by sweeping floors and now, under Will's tutelage, can build a gun from scratch. Kris that says his main job will always be "happily saying yes to Will" who has become a real mentor. In his free time, Kris likes to read, write and play music.
