Radio Shack In Montana Offering Free Gun For Subscription To Dish Network

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Montana Radio Shack`s gun giveaway for customers who sign up for the Dish Network is taking off like a shot, the owner says.

`I think it really, really fits the Bitterroot Valley,` Steve Strand, owner of the Radio Shack Super Store in Hamilton, told the local Ravalli Republic newspaper.


After signing a service contract and setting an installation date, customers get a gift certificate good for a Hi Point 380 pistol or a 20-gauge shotgun. They also can go for a $50 gift card from Pizza Hut instead. Read more

Prior to getting a cable hook-up, I subscribed to a satellite TV provider. I got horrible reception with the satellite dish, more than once I was tempted to blast the satellite dish with my shotgun. The Montana Radio Shack may be getting back a few satellite dishes full of holes.

There is nothing illegal, immoral or tawdry about this promotion, if you`re a pacifist get the Pizza Hut gift card.

Burglars in Bitterroot Valley will know not to break into any homes with a Dish Network satellite dish.

The promotion has been a tremendous success, everybody in Bitterroot Valley is happy except the burglars.
