(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Hundreds of people bought their tickets to the St. Joseph Big Buck and Gun Show today.

The event featured more than 150 booths with everything for outdoor fanatics.

Different guns, fishing and hunting gear and other outdoor equipment was on display, and on sale for visitors.

The event was open to people of all ages.

Exhibitors say, they're glad they got a chance to show off their merchandise.

"It's a chance to get together, to not only see what's new, what's fresh, but what else is out here along with the educational programs that are with the different organizations," said Jerry Cox.

"It's a good family time. To share something, it's wonderful because you can come out here and look at the deer, and compare them to ours at home. Or, we can look at guns and say wow, I want that on my wish list," Charity Theis.

The gun show continues tomorrow, at the civic arena, from 11am to 4pm.
