Gun Show

Some still shots from gun show in Columbia, MO. Not great shots but I was grabbing some of these on the sly. I wish I could have interviewed some of the buyers and sellers but that wasn’t going to happen. It would be a mistake for me to draw too many conclusions based on a couple of hours a my first gun show. The temptation to generalize and stereotype is strong. Some were there to make money. Some were collectors and hobbyists. And some were probably arming themselves for the day they have to “take this country back,” whatever that means. I was somewhat reassured by the lady selling scented candles and the guys selling beef jerky and BBQ rub.
