(CLICKORLANDO) — Nearly 8,000 people attended the first day of the Florida Gun Shows’ exhibition this weekend in Orlando, according to event organizers.

Crowds broke records on Saturday, and organizers said it’s possible they’ll see even larger numbers of gun enthusiasts before the weekend ends.

Hundreds of gun buyers took vouchers that would allow them to return on Sunday because it was difficult to get into Saturday’s events.

“[Gun enthusiasts] are buying and they’re buying as fast as they can get them,” said Victor Bean, promoter for Florida Gun Shows. “We’ve had some exhibitors who had to cancel because they didn’t have any inventory from their gun shops.”
