Free gun with satellite TV Or just get Roku.

The Radio Shack store in Montana is promoting the deal with a sign reading: 'Protect yourself with Dish Network Sign up now Get free gun, same store offer Roku box , but no contract and no gun :D
is't old story from CNN , but is so funny i have to share it.

"New subscribers can choose between a .38 handgun, 20-guage shotgun - or $50 of free pizza if they fail the free background check or just don't like guns.

Shop owner Steve Strand told CNN it took months for Dish Network to agree to the promotion, which had never been tried before, although 4x4 retailers have also offered guns - even an AK47 in one case.

'We have people literally stop in to take pictures of the sign,' said manager Fabian Levy.

Dish Network - owned by Echostar - is locked in stiff competition with both News Corporation's DirecTV and local cable networks for pay-TV subscribers in the US.
