Lynch Hummer dealership in Chesterfield, Missouri – Click above for image gallery

Peanut butter and jelly. Burgers and fries. Hummers and, um, handguns? That's right, where else but in the good ol' U. S. of A. could such necessary staples of everyday life be bundled together under one roof?

Like many other Hummer dealers, Jim Lynch, the man behind Lynch Hummer of Chesterfield, Missouri (a suburb of St. Louis), found himself with lots of vacant floorspace after fuel prices, the economic downturn and the court of public opinion conspired to restrict vehicle sales at his fine establishment. What to do? Seems rather obvious to us – add firearm and ammunition sales, what else? According to Lynch, "It is a natural fit. Our customers enjoy outdoor sports and the firearms have been a big hit with our Hummer owners."

It's all about customer service, says Lynch, "We take our mission of providing a pleasant shopping environment for our customers very seriously... We sold our first Hummer online in 1995 and have been a leader in online sales of off-road parts and accessories through our Adventure Accessories web site for many years. We plan to do the same with firearms and accessories on our website."

Interested in adding both a Hummer and a new Glock (or Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Kimber, Colt, Benelli, Beretta, Browning, FNH, H&K, Springfield Armory, Ruger, Walther, Stoeger, Franchi, Uberti, CMMG, DPMS, Bushmaster or Barrett) to your arsenal? Click here to visit GunsAndHummers.com and hit the jump for the official press release. In the meantime, we'll be waiting for the first Mini dealer paired with a Starbucks franchise.

PRESS RELEASE:

Guns and Hummers: Ain't That American


CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Lynch Hummer http://www.LynchHummer.com), 7 times the world's #1 volume Hummer dealer, has announced the opening of the world's first combined Hummer and firearms dealership. Jim Lynch has turned his $7.5 million Hummer facility in this upscale St. Louis suburb into every shooting enthusiast's must-visit attraction.

"It is a natural fit," says Jim. "Our customers enjoy outdoor sports and the firearms have been a big hit with our Hummer owners."

With the automobile industry suffering sharp sales declines, Jim Lynch found himself with a beautiful facility that was vastly underutilized. "We have been very fortunate with our newest venture. Firearm manufacturers have embraced our vision and have provided us with a huge inventory of items that are in demand and hard to find elsewhere."

Firearms from top-tier manufacturers Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Kimber, Colt, Benelli, Beretta, Browning, FNH, H&K, Springfield Armory, Glock, Ruger, Walther, Stoeger, Franchi, Uberti, CMMG, DPMS, Bushmaster and Barrett, among others, crowd the large showroom once filled with Hummers. Apparently ammunition suppliers have also taken note of Mr. Lynch's venture, as ammunition scarce elsewhere fills the shelves.

Lynch Hummer has always offered something different for its customers. Their facility boasts a rugged 60-acre off-road course along the Missouri River that has often been featured in print and television, including a starring role in a Travel Channel special.

Along with earning the title of the world's #1 volume Hummer dealer, Lynch Hummer has also earned awards for having the highest customer satisfaction in the nation. "We take our mission of providing a pleasant shopping environment for our customers very seriously," says Jim. Not only do they offer a pleasant shopping experience in the dealership but also online. "We sold our first Hummer online in 1995 and have been a leader in online sales of off-road parts and accessories through our Adventure Accessories web site http://www.AdventureAccessories.com) for many years. We plan to do the same with firearms and accessories on our websitehttp://www.GunsAndHummers.com."

Lynch Hummer/ Adventure Accessories is located along Highway 64 in Chesterfield, Missouri and can be reached at 1-800-HUMMER-9 or online athttp://www.GunsAndHummers.com

      You are right in many ways. As a pretty liberal guy I support the second amendment becuase if we weaken it, only the crazy black helicopter crowd will be carrying guns and the rest of us will be screwed.

      As soon as I read the post.........

      Don't own a truck, SUV, or Hummer. Honda Odyssey guy. I do own a XD45. I own and know how to handle my Springfield because, when I had to defend my family from two intruders, fighting them off with my penis never came to mind. The gun is a 5 inch tactical, while my penis-though larger-does not hold as many rounds.

      Fire away.

        willute, this is the funniest post I have read in months! I don't own a gun, never have, but I strongly support your right to own one.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I got a Kimber because the Springfield 1911 was in short supply ad the XD has no external safety. Yes I know it has other safety mechanisms but a true clicking safety is an absolute requirement for me to own a pistol.

        But good show with your comments. Quite possibly the most hilarious and dubiously funny rebuttal.

        Hey such********,

        Your information is incorrect. We are by far the most well armed country in the world as far as civilans. There is one registered firearm per every man woman and child in the USA. The second most armed country? It is India which has about 1 firearm per 100 people. And we have by far the most gun related fatalities of any developed nation.

        Theres absolutely nothing wrong with them being sold. Guns are sold all around the world. It's not a problem of selling it, the only problem would be irresponsible people buying them.

        Like the other man said in switzerland just about everyone has a firearm and they're taught to use it. They have 100 deaths per year from guns. This isnt just an american thing.

        and theres absolutely nothing wrong with having a gun. The only reason we rely on cops so much is because they have guns so if we all had our own weapons things would be a bit different.

        I was thinking the exact same thing. I wonder how long it will be before the rest of the world decides to blockade the U.S. for being a land of thugs, idiots, and gun toting hillbillies. We've got The Jefferson's "movin' on up" in the white house, a dog murderer headlining in a favorite national sports pastime. Now, the car dealerships selling guns. Why not sell them in church? Seriously; if I lived in Britain or Canada, I would be scratching my head and worried about the future of the U.S. The rest of the world has probably long given up hope already.

      that's why americans get threaded so brutal by police forces.

      you may keep it.

      in order to get a gun licinse here, you must proof you need it (security agents, bodyguards, officials, etc, etc) and you need to past a psychological examen.

      if you can't pas these, you may apply for a hunting shotgun.

      i remember a guy who stole a tank from the army, years back.
      the guy got shot by an officer without any form of trail.

      is that freedom?

      we get to see these video on the news how brutal the police gets, just because you people wanna own guns.

      i remember seing a video about a woman who only shouted, no even getting violent or an attempt to be and gets tazed by an officer.

      recently a very old woman got tazed and luckily she survived.

      i think it's also wrong that 1 car == 1 police officer.

      it's absurd that a 2 year old can apply for a license.

      i have read the gun laws on wiki, it's ridiculous, that you must wear your gun vissible, but unloaded, what the point.

      those shooting on schools.

      action causes reaction.
      you may keep it, i wish you the best.

        • 5 Years Ago
        Give you a dollar if you walk up to counter and say that Hector.

      Nothing says "I have a small member" like a hummer and a rifle.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I guess it is nice to shoot a load when you get a hummer...

      (surely the joke has been posted but I didn't see it in a quick look-see)
