Radio Shack offers free gun with purchase
When driving through Hamilton, there's no need to do a double-take when you see the sign hanging above the Radio Shack Super Store. "Protect yourself with Dish Network. Sign up now, get free gun," "I think it really, really fits the Bitterroot Valley," said Steve Strand, who has owned Hamilton's Radio Shack for about seven years. Strand, along with store manager Fabian Levy, wanted to generate more foot traffic at their location. So far, the gun giveaway has worked like a charm. "We have people literally stop by just to take pictures of the sign," Levy said. Qualifying customers have the choice between a Hi Point 380 pistol or a 20-gauge shotgun. The deal is only good for new Dish Network customers and they must buy a certain amount of equipment to qualify for the free gun. .
