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.

All I know is Gals make good breakfast in Cobb County.
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!).
Not at all.
I had me a time down there.
A dang good time
Do not want!
One of the local Tobacconist/Beer Gals had her shop closed by the landlord today.(she was doing hella business)
I told the other Gal, She will be fine.
She just needs to sell Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms in a drive through!
She agreed the drive through is the ticket LOL
ATF should not be a Federal Agency, It should be a Convenience Store!
We never drink and shoot, but why the heck can’t I buy both in one place when I am sober?
Now, that looks like hoot!
That finger smells like ***
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.
There was one up near my grandparents place in Virginia that said “Liquor, Guns, Beer, Ammo”...
That’s unique. I like it!
I woulda held out for a SureFire LumaMax flashlight. I’m more weird than you! :)
Not a problem in my book, any more than the old joke about the gas station advertising cold beer.
