    Tax Free Weekend on Firearms

    In the state of South Carolina, they are having a tax free sale on all firearms. Did not find this out until today when I went in to get some ammo. It will run through Saturday. I am not planning on purchasing anything but thought it was funny idea.

    Does anybody else possibly know the reason behind such a decision. Its not like gun sales need a stimulus at the present time.

    In the county I live in, it would add up to another 8% off the gun of your choice.

    I have a dealer I go to a lot that will give me an out the door price that will be under sticker and no tax figured in. If it's getting paid he's taking it from his end. Usually always get a box or two of some good ammo too with each one tossed in. If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times. Build up a good relationship with a shop owner and it will pay off in the long run

    This was passed in late June. Sales had increased, but not to the extent they have now.
