A record number of people attended this weekend's gun show at the Patriot Center in Rothschild.

Organizers said about 4,000 people visited the event this weekend.

They said people of all skill levels came to look at what was for sale and talk with experts about firearms.

"They're looking for ammo, they're looking for high capacity hand guns, and they're looking for AR15s and AKs," said Gun Show Director, Robert Pucci.

The gun show wrapped up Sunday afternoon.

Organizers said they've seen an increase in the number of people taking an interest in owning a gun.

They said the most popular item at the show was the AR 15.
