COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Gun buyers can save a few bucks this weekend during the South Carolina's third annual Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday.

Shoppers looking for some handguns, rifles and shotguns won't have to pay sales tax Friday through midnight Sunday during "Second Amendment Weekend."

Accessories like ammunition, black powder, holsters and archery supplies are taxed. There also is no exemption for antique and collectible handguns, as well as handguns that do not fire a fixed cartridge.

South Carolina holds a tax break weekend for back-to-school items in August.
