Tri-State Gun Collectors held its first gun show of the year Sunday, January 7th, 2018.

People from all over the region traveled to Lima to buy, sell, and trade and even just get a look at different types of modern and antique guns and accessories. Around 2,000 people come through each weekend to see hundreds of vendors with their weapons on display. Tri-State Gun Collectors, Inc. Treasurer Tom Baeumel says the group has been hosting the popular event for around 60 years now, and the variety of vendors help to attract a big crowd.

"The shooting industry in America is a big, big industry," says Baeumel. "That's how this country got started, so the shooting industry, shooting sports is big, it really is."

Tri-State Gun Collectors holds a gun show every first full weekend of each month from October to May.
