NORTH LIBERTY, IA - Have you spent your life hunting for the perfect wife? Maybe you have met the one but are feeling gun shy?
An Iowa jeweler is offering free rifles for husbands-to-be who spend at least $1,999 on an engagement ring at his store near Iowa City.
Jeweler Harold van Beek told KCRG near Cedar Rapids that he wanted to "do something for the boy who doesn't like to hunt for diamonds but likes to hunt for deer."
The deal at Jewelry By Harold in North Liberty starts Thursday and will run through the end of October.
The rifle offer is subject to Iowa laws on gun ownership. Those barred include felons and addicts.

It may seem a little far-fetched right now but it could become a reality if space companies like Virgin Galactic realize their aspirations over the next 30 years or so.
