The "Duck Dynasty" family is creating a new gun line for their Duck Commander brand, teaming up with gunmaker Mossberg to create the new products.

The new line, which will be in “waterfowl pattern” camouflage, will feature nine shotguns, two semiautomatic rifles, and one semiautomatic pistol, CNN reports.

The guns have started shipping to distributors, CNN said, although a Mossberg spokesperson didn’t reveal who will be selling the guns. The Mossberg & Sons website was down as of Thursday afternoon.

The Robertson family is already marketing the guns on four Mossberg video ads that are on YouTube. In one, patriarch Phil Robertson says, “Do you know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake’s head smooth off.” Another commercial features Phil Robertson saying, “Where there’s design, there is a designer. We were designed to kill ducks.”

The Robertson family business, Duck Commander, sells duck calls, clothing, and hunting DVDs through various retailers.

The guns will all sport the Duck Commander logo of a flying duck and each will come with an American flag bandana, CNN said.

As Mossberg released the video ads and announcements about the Duck Commander series over the past few months, people lined up online to tell the company that they’re proud Mossberg is standing behind Phil Robertson. The family leader was temporarily suspended from "Duck Dynasty" on A&E after he made negative statements about homosexuality and African-Americans.

Wrote one fan on Mossberg’s Facebook page where a Duck Commander ad was posted: “Thank you for standing up for what’s right and continuing support. There is a reason I own 4 Mossberg shotguns and this was the one sponsor I was hoping wouldn’t back down. This made my day.”
