Can’t decide what to get the love of your life for Valentine’s Day?

Tired of buying her the obligatory dozen roses, box of candy or sexy lingerie?

Here at the Outdoor Newshound, we feel your pain, men!

That’s why we’re passing along a tip from Big Al’s Guns, located in Pineville, Louisiana.

Big Al’s is running a radio ad for Valentine’s Day suggesting that “if your lady’s hotter than a $2 pistol,” a handgun may just say “I love you,” better than flowers or chocolates ever could.


Stephanie Forest, co-owner of Big Al’s Guns, told the Pineville Town Talk newspaper that she thought up the Valentine’s Day tie-in between guns and love while driving in her car. She couldn’t get the George Jones song, “The One I Loved Back Then” out of her head and decided it would make a good ad for the sweetheart holiday.

Forest’s suggestions include the feminine-sized Keltec 9mm, and the pink-gripped .22-caliber revolver made by North American Arms.

Take it from the old Newshound: Pink is the ticket this February 14th!
