Retailers say that due to the national tension regarding gun control that was in full force this time last year, gun sales soared. Customers also stocked up on extra ammunition, even if they did not need it at the time.
Compared to last year, this year's show was dramatically calmer. The show sill attracted a great number of people, however, the turn out was nothing like last year's.
Gun retailers are still hopeful for another good year of sales because they say that guns are products that sell pretty regularly and then of course, this is Texas, and Texans love their guns.
