A tough town for musicians

I find it interesting that the two major outlets for guitars in my town are “Lone Star Music and Archery” and “Praco Gun and Pawn.”  (The latter is the place where we purchased a cool guitar case for my son with an image on it from Dante’s Inferno.)  There used to be a plain old music store with band instruments and lessons and such, but it recently closed, and there’s not a Guitar Center or a Music and Arts store anywhere to be seen.  Maybe something will open up.  Maybe there’s a wonderful shop that I haven’t found yet.  But I’m guessing that a music store just can’t survive in this town without weaponry.
