Nowhere.....Just here in East Texas.
Thanks eveyrone. I plan on taking her here and we're going to talk to a professional --

Awesome. If it's good archery shop, the initial cost might be a little higher than some of the big box stores or chains, but the set-up, tuning, service and instruction will more than make up for the small amount saved in the long run.

Best of luck to your wife.

My girlfriend really wants a compound bow for her birthday. That's coming up in a few weeks. I have a budget of about 300 bucks. What should i be looking at? She's 30 (turning 31) and is not what I would consider "strong" so I think any draw weight over 30 is going to be impossible for her. Not that I know this. So adjustable is preferred. But I am your expertise mercy as I know NOTHING about archery.

Understood on saving money…maybe. It is possible that the deal you find in the pawnshop has issues. In some cases it is IMO better to spend a little extra and support the local store especially if you are going to have them tune, repair, setup, and such. That way you build a better customer service experience and you are not throwing in an unknown variable on a bow that you have no information on its history of use/abuse/care, etc.
