Sarah Palin made a weekend public appearance after keeping a low profile since she resigned as Alaska governor July 26.
The former Republican vice presidential candidate gave a speech on gun rights Saturday night at a banquet in Anchorage.
The event capped a four-day National Rifle Association seminar hosted by the Alaska Gun Collectors Association.
NRA director Wayne Anthony Ross, president of the gun collectors' group, says Palin attended the dinner with her husband, Todd. Ross says about 130 people were at the banquet.
Internet fans have been eagerly awaiting an update from Palin, who has been laying low since she resigned with 16 months left in her first term.
