A spokesman for a group holding gun shows throughout the Dakotas says the number of participating collectors and vendors are on the rise this winter.
The eleventh annual Brookings Gun Show this weekend is the second of eleven events scheduled by the Dakota Territory Gun Collectors Association through the spring.
Group spokesman Vic Carter says the Brookings show has space for 340 booths, all of which were rented. He says the event has drawn vendors from North Dakota, South Dakota and other states.
Carter says the talk about gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting has led to higher prices. He believes sales will return to normal once the debate settles down.
The group will hold its next show in Bismarck, N.D., this weekend.
