Buy a diamond, get a gun
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | Sept. 21, 2012 | Christian Boone

The juxtaposition of diamonds and guns may seem a bit peculiar on the surface, sort of like Britney Spears judging musical talent or Dr. Phil writing a diet book.

Even the man behind this unique promotion, which continues through Saturday, was a bit circumspect at first, but now Mike Geller is sold.

“It makes some sense when you think about it,” said the owner of D. Geller and Son Jewelers, which has two locations in Cobb County. The store is giving away a voucher for hunting rifles with any purchase of $,2499 or more, which appeals to its mostly male customer base.

The promotion comes just in time for deer hunting season, which begins Oct. 20, giving outdoorsmen a chance to kill two birds with one bullet.

“The first customer we had in today saw the billboard and decided to go ahead and buy that diamond ring,” Geller said.

Years ago driving through Wisconsin there was a “red barn” type place with a sign outside that read “Guns, Liquor, Antiques”.

I thought of one stop shopping so when you got home you can sit on the porch in your rocker with a beer in one hand and plinking at squirrels with the other. (No - I am NOT seriously advocating drinking and shooting!).

Anyone ever been to the diving rock on the Chattahoochee River?

I would have never believed it.

The Diamond in my wedding ring was purchased at a gun show! One of the dealers took the loose stone in on trade; my husband called me down to look at and we picked up a nice 1/2 carat stone for $250.

We are weird...LOL!

You’re just frugal.

Makes more sense than than going 5 years in debt for a ring.when you could use the money for a house.

Not a problem in my book, any more than the old joke about the gas station advertising cold beer.
