    I notice the new commercials are saying that the "original" rose city gun show is back. Is it still a collectors west event?

    It split into two. They switch off every other month now.

    So...is there a difference between the two, as far as what's there?

    Afaik, no. All the same vendors show up at both shows.

    My friend told me rose city ones have lots of scopes to look at. I only went to western ones, and barely any scopes to look at.

    Need to see some aimpoint units in person.

    Saldy, high quality accessories seem to be a rarity at the gun show these days. Everyone wants some nasty tru-glo red dot (or dare I even mention... ncstar tactical scope) and some UTG rails to make their cheapo olympic arms rifle look cool.
