I certainly hope that's not your dealerships policy.

My dealership would never do anything of this kind. I could deal with them giving away handguns (I have a concealed handgun lic). But I don't condone this kind of thing, not everyone is capable of owning a gun.:rolleyes:

I just saw it and thought that was an interesting way to get customers in the door. We have given away Remington Shotguns w/ the purchase of a Remington Edition Silverado. Or I guess I should say that Regency gave the gun away since it was their truck conversion package.

Besides, it's just another "GIANT PURPLE GORILLA" tactict to get people in the door and to get name recognition...

I'm sure if you just wanted the $450 dollar off they would do that too.

They don't hand to you it but like a coupon. I remember seeing it on one of the news stations.

A gun is a tool. So is a car or a hammer. They're giving one away? Cool!

Wow.. what a backwoods pr!ck. I don't so much have a problem with the promotion, whatever he needs to do to sell cars, but his "defense" of the promotion...God wants us to defend ourselves, America is a Christian nation, 80% classify themselves as Christians....I guess they don't read or have the internet down there in rural Missouri. I hate CNN with a passion, don't get me wrong, but I commend the newslady for having the restraint to not rip this country bumpkin a new one. If he had insulted me like that, I don't care how fast I'd lose my job, I'd tear him a new one.

There is a huge difference between a handgun, a shotgun, and an AK-47. Nobody needs an AK-47 unless they are in some sort of shooting competition for SMGs. I'm all for the second amendment, but come on now guys.

Ak-47's are not for your everyday shooter at a range, AK's are only made for one purpose....and it is not target shooting. Most people can control a handgun, but not an AK or even the military's AR15 (M16). They should not be using this kind of promo to sell a weapon (handgun maybe lol, but not an assault weapon)

Aks are not practical at all. They are a very hi-powered, ruggedly constructed assault weapon. Home defense? The round, basically a .308 , will go through your adversary, the wall( studs too) your kid in the next room, the TV, through the next wall, into the neighbors house, through their cat, through the next wall, through the Mustang in the garage , through that wall, into the next garage, and bounce off the 2010 SS sitting there. The point is, its overkill for any application other than open range killing. Same with anything that shoots a .223 , which is actually a DEADLIER round, because it tumbles, and its supersonic, like the 308. When it hits a human, it will bounce around inside and tear organs to pieces. M-16s and Ruger Mini-14s are the primary weapons you see that fire that round. The best home defense weapon is a 12 guage pump. The racking will make any intruder crap their pants, you cant miss, and in close quarter combat, the spread pattern is approx. a foot . Tex should give away 12 guage pumps, not something that an untrained civilian will kill himself or someone else with. Jeesh. Just because you CAN , doesnt mean you SHOULD...

That is for **** sure. That is one of the scariest things a crook will ever hear. And you sure as hell wont miss him.
I think not only will my shotgun scare the piss out of him but so will me racking a round into my .40 cal. I just feel alot better about getting that scumbag with a 12 guage. 12 guage might knock my wife on her ass but she wont miss either.
