LAWRENCEVILLE — You don’t need to go to the malls to find gifts for everyone. Those who would rather own a handgun can look for a new piece without stepping into the Christmas crowd.

On Saturday and Sunday, the RK Gun Show returns to the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds. This past January, a line of customers stretched hundreds of people deep into the parking lot. Gun enthusiasts bumped shoulder-to-shoulder browsing the 300 tables.

Organizers of the event say it allows gun buyers and sellers to browse antique and modern firearms of all types, from rifles to shotguns and handguns.

Attendees ranging from all legal ages and from all walks of life come to this event, including gas station employees and company executives.

At the gun show, each vendor is required to have a federal firearms license, and require each buying customer to fill out paperwork and pass a background check prior to the purchase.

The show ends at 5 p.m. Sunday.
