NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa (CBS St. Louis/AP) — Have you spent your life hunting for the perfect wife? Maybe you have met the one but are feeling gun shy?
An Iowa jeweler is offering free rifles for husbands-to-be who spend at least $1,999 on an engagement ring at his store near Iowa City.
Jeweler Harold van Beek told KCRG near Cedar Rapids that he wanted to “do something for the boy who doesn’t like to hunt for diamonds but likes to hunt for deer.”
“Fun is more important than anything else, we try to put some fun in it,” he added to the station.
The deal at Jewelry By Harold in North Liberty starts Thursday and will run through the end of October.
The rifle offer is subject to Iowa laws on gun ownership. Those barred include felons and addicts.
