I’d watch The Gunfather – if my Time Warner sub included The Outdoor Channel and I wasn’t binge-watching The Black List on Netflix (where bad guys die silently from one shot). As the show enters into its second season, three questions. First, have you seen it? Second, are you getting tired of TV shows about people who sell guns? And lastly, what would you like to see gun-wise on TV? On a side note, TTAG has pitched a series on guns to follow the Top Gear format, but no dice. Help a guy out, willya? Press release on The Gunfather Season 2 after the jump . . .
Join Louie and his wife, Theresa (aka T-bone), their three children Allie, Nicole, and Louie Jr., and his father Joe (aka Pops), as they continue to adapt to their life out West. Produced by Magnum Global Media, in association with Outdoor Channel, The Gunfather premiered in September 2014 to much fanfare and quickly became one of the outdoor network’s most popular television series.
Louie’s knowledge of and passion for guns led him across the country to Hamilton, Montana to open The Custom Shop, his family-run firearms sales and restoration business. The reality show follows life with the Tuminaros, their spirited household dynamics, their New York resolve that drives them to succeed and their customer interaction on every negotiation, purchase and sale. Louie may have a direct personality and tough exterior, but it’s evident that he’s first and foremost a loving family man.
In the Season Two premiere, “Like Father Like Son,” Louie Tuminaro has a new load of guns to prepare and ship to clients. But he’s facing some very tight deadlines to meet if he’s going to get them out on time. So it’s all hands on deck as Pops, Theresa and Derek try to meet Louie’s expectations and get the job done. Meanwhile, little Louie gets a job and finds out he’s a lot like his dad.
During the course of this 10-episode season, more than ever Louie has to balance family with the growing popularity of his shop. He travels far and wide, tirelessly hunting down unique and collectible firearms, client-ordered treasures and restorable project guns. Fortunately for him, the rest of the family and Custom Shop manager Derek Poff are willing to deal with Louie’s continued pursuit for absolute perfection, even if it occasionally makes them crazy. In the end, all of Louie’s hard work and dedication pays off when he is presented with a big business opportunity for customshopinc.com.
In Season One of The Gunfather, viewers watched as Louie Tuminaro and his family adjusted from the hustle and bustle of New York to small town life in rural Montana. Having had time to settle down and deal with the initial culture shock, Tuminaro can now focus on his dream: owning the greatest gun shop in the West. The second season is expected to feature special guest stars and more vintage firearms than the first, drawing in gun enthusiasts and casual audiences alike.
