POSTED: 8:57 PM Jan 13 2013

In the midst of a touchy debate on gun control, the Gun & Knife show was held at the Abilene Civic Center.

The show happens five times a year.

Three booths sold out Saturday. Gun sellers said this event experienced a huge increase in first time buyers and new conceal and carry owners.

Patrons also brought holsters and guns for conceal and carry.
