Tom Morgan Of Holley’s Pawn

There were rumors on the streets of Semmes that Holley’s Pawn at the intersection of Moffett Road and Schililngers Road had a pretty good sale on cases of bottled water. Always looking to save a few bucks, I stopped in to check out the rumor and found cases of the water stacked up on the sales floor.

Tom Morgan, owner of Holley’s Pawn, had read the article about the hog at the Multi-Mart and he kind of laughed and said “you can’t hog-tie a hog.” So, naturally, I asked for a little more information and he then said “I’ve been selling handcuffs to hog hunters for years. There’s a lot of people around here that go out and catch ’em just for sport. They have to handcuff them while they are marking them – they mark them so they will know they have caught that hog before.”

If you want to take advantage of a good sale on bottled water, Holley’s Pawn Store is at 7801 Moffat Road. I doubt you will miss it – it’s the mustard colored building with all the mums out front. If you need handcuffs for hog hunting, they have them too.
