Discovery / Stephanie and Kris Ford

Stephanie (Hayden) Ford is the daughter of Will Hayden, another star of the show and owner of Red Jacket Firearms. For Stephanie's eighteenth birthday, her father made her a partner in his company and appointed her business manager, making her both the beauty and the brains of Red Jacket. She has a vast knowledge of firearms, having learned a lot from her father and her time at Red Jacket, and has voiced a particular interest in the suppressed AK-47 built at Red Jacket.


Stephanie married Kris Ford in 2011. Since the Discovery Channel is not one to shy away from a little family drama, there are several episodes of "Sons and Guns" that feature their relationship prior to and after their wedding and Will Hayden's reaction to their relationship. While Will wasn't so keen early on, it's safe to safe that he eventually warmed up to the idea. Priceless!


Discovery / Kris and Stephanie Ford






Kris Ford met Stephanie at a party thrown by a mutual friend back in 2009. When Kris mentioned the trouble he was having finding a job, Stephanie offered to get him on at Red Jacket. Kris started out by sweeping the floors and doing other grunt work for Will, but eventually won a spot as an apprentice where he learned all the tricks of the trade, as well as Stephanie's heart.








Townsquare Media's first annual Outdoor Expo will be held on Saturday, July 19th and Sunday, July 20th at the Old National Event Plaza in Evansville. Red Jacket Firearms will have a booth at the expo and you will have a chance to meet Kris and Stephanie Ford on on Saturday, July 19th (time TBA)! This is one event that you don't want to miss!
