Duck Dynasty stars have taken to promoting their guns via the services of Mossberg. The Reality TV show already has many spinoff products including wine and cigars. Now with the addition of guns to the repertoire, they are all set to expand in matters of influence and popularity.
The Duck Dynasty Company has joined hands with weapons specialist, Mossberg to create a set of designer guns, rifles and an automatic shotgun. Already several products of the company are sold on a mass level. The head patriarch of Duck Dynasty has spoken of how there is a no such thing as a design without a designer. He also said that he and his family were designed to hunt ducks. In his own words, to blow off the head off a mallard was the ultimate goal.
Phil Robertson got caught up in a controversy due to his inappropriate remarks about gays and African Americans. But later on due to the support of many Christians and conservatives, including Sarah Palin, his reinstatement in the show became a possibility.
Phil Robertson stated in an interview with GQ magazine that God meant a man and a woman to be together and it was the accepted model throughout the world. He also spoke of how African Americans before the civil rights era were a happier lot.
These statements caused a storm in a teacup for the Duck Dynasty star. But all that is so much water under the bridge. With the range of weapons for hunting purposes out now, Duck Dynasty is not just a Reality TV show but a virtual empire in the making.
