North Carolina Jeweler Offers Free Shotguns For Valentine’s Day

A jeweler in Wilmington, North Carolina is featuring a promotion that offers customers a free shotgun if they purchase a certain amount of jewelery ahead of Valentine’s Day, according to WECT:

Snowden says our area is rural and that this offer will not only please the woman in the relationship but also the man as well.

“A shotgun as a Valentine’s Day present I think a lot of guys would like and the girl gets jewelry too so I think it’s a win for both.”

But don’t be fooled. You can’t walk into the jewelry store and expect to leave with a shotgun in hand.

Snowden has teamed up with Executive Arms in Wilmington.

Customers must spend at least $1,500 in Snowden’s in order to get a $300 gift voucher to Executive Arms. When they arrive at Executive Arms, they will go through an extensive background check along with the necessary paperwork to hand over the gun.
