One free shotgun with every Hummer sold

One free shotgun with every Hummer sold

Hummer has had a short but large career beginning with catching the American public’s eye during Operation Desert Storm before success and then ultimately bankruptcy. First the Hummvee was a military-only vehicle, then the original model became available to the public, after that GM bought the rights and started churning out smaller but still huge H2s and H3s, then the original H1 was discontinued and now GM is preparing to power down the brand entirely. But before that happens there is time for one final pistol-shootin’ celebration, thanks to one American dealership that sees the truck for all it’s war-heritage goodness.

Lynch Hummer from St. Louis made headlines last year when they started filling their emptying showroom with gun racks, selling firearms to help compensate for pathetic sales of the large SUVs. Now the dealership is going one step further with a intelligent one-of-a-kind promotion – buy a Hummer, get a free shotgun.

The giveaway gun is a Browning Citori White Lightning worth $2,000 USD, and one will be included with each purchase of a new Hummer. Being a person who buys a Hummer should really be enough to guarantee responsible gun ownership but unfortunately, the same legal rules apply to the promotion as they would to anyone buying a new firearm. Seems unfair, but now Americans have a one-stop shop to kick-start their own personal militia, be afraid.
