A rent-to-own store in Missouri is offering the opportunity to rent guns.

The store began renting guns to the public in February. The owner says it's legal, ATF compliant, and has a return policy.

The owner also says, it's no different than any other loan.

"It added a new avenue of business, which is always good for a small business man. Plus, I've always been a hand gun enthusiast, so it's kind of been a hobby of mine anyway. Brought in a new group of people into my store that hadn't been around here before, so it's helped all the way around. It's been real enjoyable, real enjoyable," Steve Parnell said.

Parnell says it's helped fill a need in his community.
