Looking for a new truck and a gun? Head to Lumberton
Posted August 20
Lumberton, N.C. — In the market for a fully-loaded pickup truck and a fully-loaded handgun?
Head to Lumberton, as in Lumberton Ford Lincoln to be exact.
The dealership is offering a $350 gift certificate to Rhudy’s Gun and Pawn Shop in Fayetteville for anyone purchasing a new Ford F150 pickup truck.
And yes, a background check will be required.
"Without getting political, there's probably a lot of people who feel some of our constitutional rights are being infringed upon, and I've been one of them,” said Jim Drost, sales manager. “And we thought it was a decent place to draw a line and show our support."
The dealership hasn’t received any local or national backlash, but people are talking about it. The National Rifle Association did a radio interview with the dealership’s general manager.
More than 20 certificates have been handed out so far.
The promotion lasts until Sept. 1.
“It generated a little stir, which is what we like,” Drost said.
