(Newser) – Got a cottonmouth in your duck blind? The Duck Dynasty family says it has just the thing: a .22-caliber pistol, one of a dozen guns now being offered by the Robertson clan of A&E fame, reports CNN. The family's company, Duck Commander, teamed up with gun-maker Mossberg to create the weapons—nine shotguns, two assault rifles, and the aforementioned pistol.

While the cottonmouth-clearing ability is mentioned on the website, patriarch Phil Robertson, newly reinstated by the network after his anti-gay remarks, makes clear in a video for the guns what the main purpose is: "Do you know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake's head smooth off." They have a camouflage design and feature the family's now-famous duck-in-flight logo. (Read more Duck Dynasty stories.)
