BBQ restaurant offering $1 discount to pistol packers

ATHENS, Ala. —

Bill Davis Jr. is an advocate of pulled pork and pistol permits.

The Athens barbecue restaurateur is offering a $1 discount to customers who present their pistol permit when ordering at Hickory Barn Bar-B-Que.

The offer isn’t just a cheap appeal for customers; Davis is an authentic proponent of concealed weapon laws.

“There are a lot of law-abiding people who carry a pistol, and it would be nice to appreciate some of them,” Davis Wednesday in announcing the promotion. “We thought it would be a little something different to do to promote folks to get them a pistol permit.”
