    Is there any real difference between the Collectors West gun show and the Rose City gun show?

    I notice one is in October and one in November but just wondered if there was any real difference or are they pretty much the same when all is said and done??

    Neither is much good in the last few years.
    The Colostomy West show hoses you for parking and admission, and then again if you get hungry or thirsty. I can't help but think they're kicking around the idea of "pay as you go" toilets. I have only been to one show in the last 15 months and I still feel violated and walk kinda funny. Used to run across some deals on ammo, though not enough to offset the high fees for parking and admission.
    The Rose City "show" is closer to just that.
