MARIETTA, Ohio The Campus Martius Museum hosts its 11th annual "Contemporary Gunmakers and Allied Artists Show."
Gun makers and collectors shared their love for historic guns and other ancient weapons.
Attendees say, they were excited to showcase their creations and explain their craft.
Many collectors traveled from all over to participate in the show.
"To be able to keep gun building alive, it seems like we've lost some of that along the way and try to get some of the newer, younger generation involved in it so we can keep it alive," said Graig Osborne, gunmaker.
Museum goers say, events like these give insight into important parts of our nation's history.
