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?

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."
