Will Hayden

Will Hayden is the founding force behind Red Jacket Firearms. A native of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, his early exposure to guns came from his family "country people with a shotgun" who occasionally hunted. Will was a curious kid, and read everything he could get his hands on about history and warfare. This led him to start tinkering with guns, and by age 17 Will learned that building weapons was actually a good way to stay out of trouble. As Will says: "I wanted stuff I couldn't afford" so he found a way to afford them he made them. [+]
