From antique bullets dating back to the Revolutionary War to hunting rifles, shotguns, handguns, dog tags, collectable coins and more, the bi-annual Land of the Sky Gun Show enjoyed a record-breaking turnout. An estimated 2,000 buyers marched through the doors of the Asheville Civic Center on Saturday, Jan. 24, with many more following on Sunday.
