It is Tuesday and I am watching Sons of Guns. For the last three days, I have gotten handfuls of queries to this blog asking about Vince Buckles leaving the show.
So I google “Vince Buckles leaving Sons of Guns.” And I see on the Miki-mouse-a-pedia page that Vince has indeed left the show:
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms settlement
During a routine inspection in 2009, Red Jacket could not account for ten registered guns. In a settlement, William Hayden and Stephanie Hayden surrendered their gun-making licenses and were allowed to choose a licensed individual to control Red Jacket.
Initially, that person was Vincent Buckles, but Buckles has left the company and now two others individuals control the company.
Wow, is that possible? I follow the footnote at the bottom of the page to (who else other than the gun experts themselves) TMZ:
TMZ has learned Vincent Buckles has since left the company — and two other licensed people are currently in charge of the business.
I have learned no new facts, other than that Will and Steph are no longer the gun-making license holders.
Is Kris Ford holding the license? Remember, he was supposed to be kicked out of the shop if he dated Steph. Well, he and the Steph-meister are hooking up and he still works there. (Yikes, this is rapidly turning into a junior high-schoolish blogpost.)
TMZ has a slide-show, right below the above post, of “strapped stars.” Does that mean movie stars who are strapped for cash? Is Nick Cage going to pop his eagley hairdo up in there? Nope, apparently it refers to movie stars with guns. One of them seems like quite a stretch:
Is that even a gun? I can’t tell. Okay, maybe a revolver. Stick to gossip there TMZ and I’ll stick to, um, er, whatever it is I do ’round here!
Update: Welcome curious readers. I am an active-duty naval officer. When enlisted, I was a linguist and this is the story of me serving as a test subject for the SEALs. Look around, make yourself at home!
Update II: Vince has a new business called Mesa Kinetic Research.
