Sig Sauer offers 'Cash for Klunker Handguns' as trade-ups

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blogging for a message from one of our valued advertisers (in my dreams) Sig Sauer:
SIG SAUER - Gives you $200 "CASH For your KLUNKER* Handgun"
Purchase a new SIG SAUER® P220®, P226®, P229®, 1911, SIG556 pistol, or SIG556 rifle from your dealer’s inventory from September 7th through November 30th, 2009, and SIG SAUER will give you $200.00 for your old KLUNKER* pistol or revolver.
Now there's a cash for klunkers program I can support. The wife and I briefly considered trading in her high-mileage Chevy Blazer for something better on gas during the recent guvmint economic stimulus plan for the nation's auto industry unions. (When it comes to "saving jobs" no group of workers ranks higher with the Obama administration than labor union members.)

But we just couldn't bring ourselves to take the ol' Chevy out behind the barn and shoot 'er in the head. She still runs good, gets fair to middlin' mileage and just because the federal guvmint wants to give you a welfare payment, is that any reason to take it? We decided the answer was "no" so we kept the Chevy off death row.

So Sig Sauer takes the idea and runs with it. Only problem I have is none of my handguns are klunkers. And I can't find a barely functioning piece of junk at the shop and use it for a trade-in because we have no "klunkers' at the gun shop. All our guns are there because we bought 'em or accepted them in trades and we don't take in no junk.

But if you've got a klunker, here's your chance to trade it on a genuine new Sig Sauer. Go for it!
