SANDY — After several weeks of intense debate about gun control, the Rocky Mountain Gun Show saw a record turnout.

About 20,000 attended the opening day of the weekend-long Rocky Mountain Gun Show Saturday. Typically, this gun show draws about 17,000 people throughout the entire weekend.

People wanted to get their hands on guns, high-powered rifles and ammunition. Long lines and shoulder-to-shoulder crowds waited to get inside the Southtowne Expo Center.

Matt Webster came to get parts and ammunition for his AR-15, only to find, he was out of luck.

"We got here, maybe around noon and they were sold out of the .223, which is the main round for the AR-15 and they were just out. We asked if they had any .223 and the guy just laughed at us," Webster said.

Matthew Gomez got his hands on ammunition, but for a price.
