One Stop Shopping

As frequent visitors to My Viewfinder 2 already know, I am always on the lookout for a good sign. Anything funny, quirky, odd, or unusual - I want a picture of it. I like old signs, and ones with mis-spellings are a particular treasure. And so I introduce my newest acquisition, the Drug & Gun billboard.

Drug & Gun Billboard, Cherokee County, NC  -  2014

Is this a slice of life from one of America's inner cities? No, this beauty resides on U.S. 64 West, just a few miles outside Murphy, NC. The combination of the words "Drug & Gun" is an attention getter for sure, along with the bright yellow print, and a photo of a new Ruger SR1911 pistol. Who would have thought of combining a gun store with a pharmacy? I guess in northern Georgia where this store resides, being able to get your prescription and a box of .45 ACP in the same location meets a local need. The store owners are obviously hoping that their neighbors in nearby North Carolina will also see the wisdom in this one stop shopping opportunity!
