"American Guns" will not return to Discovery. According to, Discovery has pulled repeats of the series as well.

The reality series followed the Wyatt family and the staff of Gunsmoke Guns, a Colorado gun store that specializes in gun manufacturing, customization and trade. In a press release from April 2012 following the second season premiere, Discovery touted the ratings were 50 percent higher than Season 1.

"'American Guns' concluded earlier this year," a spokesperson for Discovery told The Huffington Post via email. "Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show."

The fate of "Sons Of Guns," another Discovery Channel series about fire arms, is unknown at this time.
