Great Moments In Commercial History: Don's Guns

The 2nd amendment is alive and well at Don’s Guns… Greg, from Indianapolis, writes:

In the late 80s and 90s, I’d fall asleep with the TV on and his commercials would wake me up with the gunfire in the beginning. Scared the hell out of me.

He’s got everything you’d expect from a sleazy gun dealer – bright smile, slicked hair, cheesy slogan (“I don’t want to make any money, I just love to sell guns.”)

This is the sort of commercial that, unless someone had written in and nominated it, we’d have assumed was from Kentucky Fried Movie or something. All told, we’re glad Don sells guns and not food. We can’t really explain why, it’s just a feeling we have.

If you’d like to nominate a commercial for “Great Moments in Commercial History,” send an email to us at tips [at] consumerist [dot] com. If you’ve already nominated one, don’t fret. We’re working on it. —MEGHANN MARCO
