pistol? shotgun? AK47?!
HAMILTON, Mont. — A Radio Shack in Montana is offering would-be
satellite television customers a bit more bang for their buck.
The Ravalli Republic reports customers who sign up for some Dish
Network packages at Radio Shack in Hamilton will be rewarded with
a pistol or shotgun. Those not interested in the gun offer can pick
a $50 Pizza Hut gift card.
Store owner Steve Strand says it took some haggling to get Dish Network
Corp. to go along with the promotion, but he says it has tripled his
business since it started last October.
The sign outside the business reads: "Protect yourself with Dish Network. Sign up now, get free gun."
The promotion includes a coupon for a gun and the required background check.
Strand says he plans to start the same promotion next month with DIRECTV packages.
SANFORD, Fla. — A Florida car dealership trying to drum up
business is offering an unusual perk for potential used-truck
buyers: A free AK-47 assault rifle.

was announced on Veterans Day, business has more than doubled at
Nations Trucks in Sanford.
Customers would have to pass a background check before using the
$400 gun shop voucher. They also have the option of using the
money toward other firearms, or they can request a check in that
The dealership has fielded some complaints about the deal, which
Ginetta acknowledges is controversial. But, he adds: "My buyer is
absolutely a gun owner, no question."
The promotion runs through the end of November.
