    Store Offers Free Gun With Diamond Purchase - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.

    Diamonds are said to be a woman’s best friend. However, most men don’t enjoy shopping for the perfect cut for their lady.

    So, a shop in Georgia seems to have come up with a solution. It’s a simple concept: Purchase a diamond, get a rifle for free. The Atlanta based store is offering the promotion from September 20th through the 24th as a creative way to generate more sales.

    Although the offer is geared towards hunters, any customer who buys $2,500 worth of diamonds receives a free gun, valued at $430.

    The store representative note, “Things are tough everywhere, but what we've come to over the last few years is, if you want to stand out you have to make it fun.”

    Last year, another retailer offered free guns as a promotion. A Radio Shack in Montana saw a sharp increase in business after posting a sign that read: “Protect yourself with Dish Network. Sign up now. Get free gun.”

    Do you think it's a good idea to offer guns through promotions?
