Gun sales allowed at Key City Coin show for first time

Key City Coin Show draws in collectors

ABILENE, Texas - Dozens of coin collectors took the opportunity Saturday to trade and buy coins and guns.

Organizers of the event invited a local gun shop to set up at the show. This was the first year guns and ammunition were allowed.

Michael Tibbett, owner of Tibbett Gun Works in Floyd County, said it's important that people know where they can find ammo because it is still in short supply.

"Ammunition has been in short supply for some time and it seems to be an increasingly short supply," Tibbett said. "It has to do with both supply and demand, it's driven. The candle is burned at both ends." 

The Key City Coin, Stamp and Sports Card Club meets every first Thursday in the Senior Citizens Building at Rose Park.
