The closest town of any size to where my sister lives - Wenatchee, Washington State - has 33,000 people and about a half-dozen gun shops. We visited last year and stood in a queue in its Walmart, which also has its own gun section, behind a group of 3 young mums pushing strollers loaded with their toddlers. Each mum packed a handgun in differing holsters wrapped around their ample middles.

When Jo and I were short a bike in Arkansas we went to a town called Searcy where we were told there was a dealer with a few second hand bikes. The town of Searcy had a population of about 24000 and a motorcycle dealership about the size of all of the Peter Stevens branches in Melbourne combined.
