The year's first gun show back in January set record breaking sales for some gun salesmen and folks were at it again at the MPEC.

Guns, ammunition, and knives were just some of the many items people bought downtown Saturday.

Coordinators of the event say the sale had about 50% more sellers.

They also enlarged the space used during the sale.

And after a lot talk of stricter gun laws since the Sandy Hook school shooting, gun sellers say they're finally beginning to see their sales taper off. 

"The show is January was crazy, I mean it was insane, but like everything else the bill didn't go through and it's calmed down," said Travis Stewart, a Licensed FFL Dealer.

The gun show continues Sunday at the MPEC from 10:00 to 5:00 p.m.
