Large turnout for Fairbanks gun show

Posted: Tuesday, October 20, 2009

FAIRBANKS - Record crowds turned out for this year's Tanana Valley Sportsmen's Association Fall Gun Show.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that more than 2,000 people walked through the door at UAF's Patty Center to peruse an array of firearms ranging from 1860s antiques to the latest competition rifles.

Buyers, sellers and spectators all attributed the nationwide surge in gun and ammo sales to worries the Obama administration will try to restrict gun ownership.

Organizers say good weather and the release of the Alaska Permanent Fund dividend also helped boost attendance.
