Share Your Amazing Story!

Currently we are accepting written and/or video submissions using the form below. Here’s what we need:

Tell Us Your Story: Make us laugh. Make us cry. Tell us the amazing story behind your gun and why having it restored would mean so much you. We’ve helped wounded warriors and families who have lost a loved one. We’ve restored family heirloom firearms that united entire towns and communities. Now we want to hear the story of YOUR gun and possibly share it with the world!

Show Us Your Gun: Please provide a short synopsis of the gun specs (manufacturer, model, caliber) and what kind of repairs/upgrades you need help with. How bad of shape is she in? Do you have any parts we can work with, etc. Please also include…

  • Photos of the gun. (assembled, disassembled “if applicable” and from all angles)
  • Photos of the area where the gun is stored.
  • Photos of the owner/family.

Please note that ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE MADE THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, so please do not contact the production company directly. Acceptance of submission is not an indication of interest or a promise to include your gun. But the project gun you submit could be chosen to be featured on upcoming episodes of The GunFather!

With your submission you will be automatically enrolled in The GunFather’s newsletter and eligible to receive offers, exclusive inside info and updates from Custom Shop Inc. and show personalities. Feel free to opt-out/unsubscribe at any time (but you may break Louie’s heart into 1000 pieces if you do!).

The selection of a gun to be used in The GunFather is at the sole and complete discretion of the producers of The GunFather.

The more complete your submission is, the easier it will be for us to evaluate your gun for the show. Above all else, tell us your story and why your ride would make a great episode of The GunFather!

Yes!! We read EVERY submission that comes in and do our best to get back to everyone. While we may not be able to help you right now, we save all submissions for future shows. Even if we can’t get your submission on television, we would love to help restore your firearm to its former glory.
