Signs - What a deal!

I cannot take credit for the photo, stumbled across the story on the internet.


Yes, you are reading that correctly. A jewelry store in Atlanta, Georgia decided that this was a good idea. Talk about a "shotgun wedding"! The buyer had to spend at least $2500 on a ring to get a free rifle. But not to worry. The person didn't just walk out of the store with a ring in one hand and a rifle in the other. The buyer was given a voucher and then had to comply with applicable laws at the gun stores.

Well, THAT'S a sigh of relief!

That's pretty funny stuff! A ring and a gun combo. Very redneck.

Country Gal said...

Funny ! Take her hunting with ya in exchange for the ring lol !

VioletSky said...

Prem said...

This is pretty hilarious, I am glad that it wasn't that easy though to get the rifle. :D

Brian Miller said...

Sounds like a fair deal - both parties are happy! ;-) And, yes, I am glad the buyer is required to comply with the pertinent gun laws. Gotta be able to put food on the table now that a ring has been purchased. Thanksgiving is coming up!

On another topic entirely...Your header shot and background are just fantastic!

RedPat said...

Wow that is something you won'r see everywhere. I find it quite scary.

Pat, isn't that called "getting two birds with one stone"? Scary thought....desperate hunter gets a deal he could not refuse.....I feel sorry for the bride, if there still is one!!

Love it!

I was just back in Mississippi this past weekend. I wouldn't have been at all surprised to see a sign like this one there as well. The guys are going to get their rifles anyway, so at least this deal makes both sides happy! :)

Lesley said...

a scarier sign would be if it was in reverse...

and yes, there really is a Leslieville!
