You know what would make something instantly better when you know you're going to buy it anyway?
Getting a free gun with it!
Well that's the mindset of a Radio Shack in Hamilton, Montana! They started giving away a free gun with the purchase of Dish Network in October, and it's been extremely successful for them.
The customers, of course, have to go through an extensive background check before they receive a voucher for a free gun at a local guns and ammo supply store.
Don't want a gun? Can't get a gun? No problem, have a $50 dollar Pizza Hut gift certificate instead.
Wait, does that mean people have been getting guns that are only worth 50 bucks? How does that work? We figured guns would be a little pricier than that!
No matter how you feel about gun laws and safety, it looks like they're taking the proper precautions, and it IS a good thing for the business, which has claimed tripled sales since the start.
Plus you can't beat a sign that says:
"Protect yourself with the Dish Network. Sign up now, get a free gun."
How do U feel about this program??
