Buy a used truck get a *FREE* AK-47!

submitted on November 16, 2010 by sareece in "Sales / Promotions"
A truck dealership located in Sanford, Florida is running an unusual promotion, trying to get the attention of rednecks and hillbillies who might not already have a pick-up truck and an AK-47 to go with it. The dealer is giving away a free AK-47 automated rifle with every used truck they sell.

    I think this qualifies as a 'Sale'. Not sure why you placed it in 'Other'. Amused

    The promotion which lasts until the end of the month is actually for $400 vouchers to a local gun store. Customers still have to go through the application process and qualify under state and federal law. Ginetta said that buyers who don't want a gun will be given cash.

    This promo has brought in customers though. How many people who will actually end up with an AK-47 is questionable.

    I didn't know selling full-automatic firearms was even legal in the US. When I was in high school, part of the school curriculum was a couple visits to a local range to shoot from AK-M (a modern version of AK-47). Also, disassembling and assembling the gun was done for a test. I think I could do it within 10-15 seconds back then. Big Grin

      This says for an "automated" AK-47. I am guessing they mean to say automatic, not automated and that is considered a semi-automatic (i.e. not a single action or single shot.) It would be called "fully automatic" if it was like you are thinking of a machine gun type of thing haha! And fully automatic rifles are legal in some states you just have to have a certain license to own them. I think they just started legalizing them a few years ago.
