"We had probably the biggest one day crowd that we've ever had in Abilene," said show organizer Kim Sanson.
"Everybody wants one now. They're afraid of what's going to happen with the proposed gun control," said Michial Dunlap, a vendor at the show.
Dunlap has been a gun show vendor for over 30 years. And he and other vendors are feeling the perks of the spike in gun sales.
"Over the last few months they have been just been over the top," he said. "They're, you can't get parts, you can't get things for guns. They're selling as fast as you can put them out."
But with the increased gun sales at gun shows like this one, many vendors are facing the same problem.
"It's a very double-edged sword. The more the government says they're going to ban them, the more people buy them, the less that are available," Dunlap explained.
The high sales have not only driven up the prices, they've depleted much of the supply. And the vendors are feeling that affect, too.
"The product is running out," Sansom explained. "So a lot of these people can't replace what they are selling, and so that in turn drops how many tables they get and how many shows they do because they don't have enough merchandise."
And though he'll be able to continue as a vendor at different shows, Dunlap says that the same can't be said for everyone.
"The availability of the product is pretty good for me because of my contacts. But a lot of the smaller vendors, they're going to have a hard time," said Dunlap. "They're still having a hard time now and there's going to be a hard time in the future."
