From South Carolina’s The Columbia State:

_Business was, you might say, booming this past weekend, as the state’s first sales tax-free weekend attracted throngs to gun shops.

“It was a tremendous incentive,” said Ronnie Thrailkill, manager of Shooter’s Choice, a West Columbia gun shop. . . .

“We probably had more than 150 people in our shop at any given time all through the day,” said Thrailkill. “I had 15 employees here.”_
