Dozens of vendors showcased a variety of unique guns and knives, including some weapons from the Civil War.

The event drew hundreds of shoppers and collectors who could also get training in self-defense. Other items for sale ranged from ammunition and flashlights to jewelry. Event officials say their gun show is always well-attended in this area.

“It’s really popular down here. I think there is a lot of shooters down here, a lot of target shooters. There is also a lot of great hunting down here in southern Missouri, and Oklahoma, and Kansas and I think that’s why we get such a great attendance here,” said Rex Kehrli with RK Shows Missouri.

The RK Gun Show has been coming to Joplin since 2005.
