Florida Store Will Give You a Shotgun If You Buy an Air Conditioner
The store, owned by Tim Toole and Jim Harden, is struggling, and hopes that offering customers free Remington model 870 12-gauge shotguns if they also buy and install a new A/C system will help their business fortunes. The pair is also starting a licensed gun shop called Shoots-n-Irons, so it makes a little sense. A tiny bit, at least.
Toole says he's just trying to promote his businesses, and doesn't think he's making any sort of pro-gun stance.
"I'm not in this to make a political statement," Toole told MyFoxTampaBay. "I'm not in this to promote the NRA. I'm not in this to do anything, but promote my business."
Costumers will have to undergo a standard background check before they get their shotgun though.
Potential costumers the news station talked to suggested that perks like grocery gift cards or a gas voucher might be more enticing, but they seem to forget that this is Florida and very few things make sense here.
