The entire time I lived there which was about 4 years. I never came across anything other than HFB and goodwill. Miss the area and people.

You may not find much. Your best bet is online.
All kinds of L.D. online.

I don’t think very many people in the world have the luxury of walking into a store and buying what they want off the shelf, especially players. In Tokyo, Japan, yeah. In the US, I don’t know. If a place did exist in the US I sure wouldn’t assume it was anywhere in Texas except maybe Austin and probably not even there.

I stopped looking at thrift stores and such for LDs, they just aren't out there and if they are they have been dumped
like that one large collection that I wasn't able to get and don't know if the other person picked it up or not.

Just too many standard regular titles out there now in bulk.

Last time I saw some LDs was at a peddlers mall in KY, they had about 10 and that would have been over 4 years ago.
Other than that record stores are your best bet if they can afford the floor space to keep the crates there.

The best place I knew of for used LD was Thomas Video but they closed down (I bought 2 feet of LDs from them at the time).

Even back in the day you had limited selection. Only whats in print, only what the store will stock. Most players were only on sale for a year or two and no shop stocked every model (aggressive value engineering). Even if you had a 704 you bought new on day one it would be hard to find a replacement when that one wore out, even just a year later. Only with the advent of eBay could you just...decide what you want from all of history and then go buy it with nothing but cash. I guess when you start with eBay and LDDB you get spoiled a little. Those are the two largest shops ever outside of YAJ.

LD is a slow and steady kind of thing...

I bought a copy about 3 weeks ago of Deathstalker III. A very lucky find in my opinion. I am looking for Deathstalker IV now but I think that wasn't released on LD was it?
