50th year for Syracuse Gun Show
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- The 50th annual Syracuse Gun show drew in thousands from across New York State.
The event started on Saturday at the Center of Progress Building at the Fairgrounds and lasted until Sunday evening.
More than 1,000 vendors showcased guns that dated back to historical events like the Revolutionary War.
Organizers and vendors say the highlight of the show was the diversity of the crowd and the record number of women that attended.
"More and more ladies are here with their boyfriends and husbands because they want to start shooting guns...they either want to own them or learn to shoot them correctly. So we see a lot more women than we've ever seen in the past," said Doug Roberts, vendor.
