This Exists: Florida Dealership Will Give You A Free AK-47 If You Buy A Truck

AK-47If you’re looking for a new truck, you might also be in the market for an assault rifle. That’s the idea behind a new promotion at a truck dealership in Sanford, Florida, which gifts all new truck buyers with a $400 voucher to a local gun shop.

The Associated Press reports that once customers pass a background check, they have the option of using the voucher to purchase an AK-47 or another firearm. Alternately, they can request a $400 check instead. The promotion began—when else?—on Veteran’s Day.

According to Nick Ginetta, the dealership’s general sales manager, the deal has so far been a great success—in the last four days, his business has more than doubled. And though the AP writes that the dealership “has fielded some complaints about the deal,” Ginetta assures that the right people aren’t offended by it: “My buyer is absolutely a gun owner, no question,” he says.
