    Hamilton Radio Shack offers free gun with new Dish Network service
    Story

    When driving down U.S. Highway 93 through Hamilton, there's no need to do a double-take when you see the sign hanging above the Radio Shack Super Store.
    You read it right. Customers who buy Dish Network will be rewarded with a firearm.
    "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.
    "It's been really successful," Levy said.
    According to Strand, it has tripled his business since the promotion started last October. And, he said, easily hundreds of people have stopped in to see what the sign is all about. "Protect yourself with Dish Network. Sign up now, get free gun," the sign reads.
    "We have people literally stop in 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.
    After the customer signs a service contract and sets up an install date, they are given a gift certificate for their gun. They can also opt for a $50 gift card from Pizza Hut if they prefer, Strand said. And customers who purchase new Dish Network service that don't qualify for a firearm are still given the Pizza Hut gift card.
    thought this was pretty cool promotion

    I was given a hi point 40. years ago. Thing shot straight as a lazer but jammed every other round.
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    Coolest incentive ever. Almost makes me want to move to Montana.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
