Joe Perry steps out of Aerosmith and into reality TV Wednesday night when he makes an appearance on Sons of Guns on The Discovery Channel. A gun collector, Perry pays a visit to Red Jacket Firearms in Louisiana to have his Lyle cannon restored and to do a little shooting, including the sinking of a replica pirate ship. Perry tells us, "We're a very second amendment family and we made a few phone calls and talked about the show 'cause I was interested in stopping by and checking their place out."

Sons of Guns airs 9 p.m. ET/PT.
