Need A Gun With Your New Camaro?

Apparently people in Missouri are not nearly as interested in free gas as they are a free gun?!?

The dealerships here in Florida used to do that all the time. Usually around hunting season. You usually had a choice between a Winchester model 94 or a pump shotgun.

From a purely econmical point of view, a new gun is usually worth more than $250. For me, that would be 2 tanks of gas with about $10 left over. That would last me between 14 and 23 days. The gun is a material item. Granted, I own two hand guns, the choice for me is easy, but not because I am a gun owner.

I love the fact that this article makes people out to be "red-necks" based upon the choice between gas and guns and the inferential sterotypes of that part of the country. Too bad it is not portrayed as a sound financial position.

It's an interesting way to put an incentive on a car rather than just cash back.
Similar to how Chrysler is paying anything over $2.99 for gasoline for the first 3 years.
