US store offers free gun with satellite dish
Saturday 26 March 2011
A US store is offering would-be satellite television customers a free gun.
The Ravalli Republic newspaper reports customers who sign up for some Dish Network packages at RadioShack in Hamilton, Montana will receive a coupon for a pistol or shotgun and the required background check.
Those not interested in a gun get a $50 Pizza Hut gift card.
Store owner Steve Strand said it took some haggling to get Dish Network to go along with the promotion, but it has tripled his business since last October.
The sign outside the business reads: "Protect yourself with Dish Network. Sign up now, get free gun."
RadioShack Corp released a statement that the independent dealer's offer does not follow the corporation's marketing practices and that it is in discussions with him.
