Hundreds of area residents spent their Saturday and Sunday in Randolph County looking to buy, sell, and trade their wares.  

The two-day R&R Sports Show event began early Saturday morning with vendors showcasing everything from machine guns to handmade medieval weaponry.  Owners said the family-friendly event is a way for gun sports lovers and collectors to share their passion.

“A lot of these guys have grown up with guns and knives.  They are big hunters, but they also do a lot of collectible items like high dollar shotguns, rifles.  It’s a very knowledgeable atmosphere.  A lot of people don’t realize, you think guns, knives, rednecks, and that’s not always true,” said R&R Sports Shows Owner Nancy Gunnoe.

The gun show included vendors from throughout West Virginia and others from across the nation.
