    >Look up gun stores

    You look up gun stores online. The nearest one is a few blocks away, and it has a shooting range too! The customer reviews say that the prices are reasonable, at least considering the 2011 gun control laws. (Not being a /k/ommando, I have no idea how much guns cost. Help here would be appreciated.)

    From close range, we can stab somebody faster than they can shoot us.

    From long range, we're getting sniped and are fucked no matter what we're packing.

    Actually, at close enough range (10 paces or so) you can.

    The issue is that we aren't well adapted for gun use; unless he's already pulling the trigger or he has complete conscious control of all of his musculature, you can be up in his face before he reacts to your charge and pulls the trigger.

    Farther out than about ten paces and you're fucked, of course, but if you're getting shot at from beyond that distance you're probably boned even if you have a gun.

    You turn to Mark. "Should we take the car or go by foot, or do we wait here for orders?"
    He replies, "Well, if we go by car they might track us. By foot, we'll be more vulnerable. If we wait here, they know where we are. It's no-win any way, but I'd like to have some protection as soon as possible. Let's take my car."

    If he does that, then chances are pretty good that your ass is getting pumped full of lead before you realize he's going to shoot you.

    It's literally impossible to be full paranoid all the time and still function. Or retain enough discretion to identify genuine threats. In those situations, knife works well enough, and won't run out of bullets.

    Cash in pocket is a few hundred dollars, but you also have a credit card. You have over a hundred thousand dollars in the bank, which you've saved up for an emergency, but is fairly easily accessible. Aside from that, you have a safe at home with your birth certificate, passport, and some emergency money (about $8000) in case the banks go tits-up like they did 6-7 years ago. You make a few tens of thousands a year at some menial desk job.

    Not knowing much about guns, you pick one of the pistols on the wall not knowing exactly what model or manufacturer, or even what caliber ammunition it takes, and say you'd like to test it out at the shooting range. (I'm not sure how these things go, if I make any mistakes I would appreciate a correction)
    You've never held a gun before, so your aim is poor and the recoil takes you by surprise. Silently you wish you had told your dad to go screw himself and joined the military when you turned 18. Ah, well.

    If we've got $100k in the bank, we can buy pretty much anything we want to without concern (not like it's probably safe in the bank with the whole conspiracy going on). However, the problem I see here is that the gun laws have gotten more strict in-game, and in real life there's already a 3-day waiting period for buying a pistol in America, which is probably what we want to get. THEREFORE, we should get the process going on a decent pistol, and pick up the most impressive non-concealable rifle/shotgun/other in the store. Plus any accessories we may find useful.

    If we've never held a gun before, we need to ask them for shooting lessons starting immediately. Otherwise the gun is more of a danger to us than a help. Also check with our two companions and see if either of them knows how.

    Mind you, I don't want to trick Mark into getting himself killed, it's just that this would probably be an especially bad way of doing it.

    You tell mark the message, except that the password is "green ocean," and that he's supposed to do it alone. He seems to believe you. You then delete the message, saying, "Oh, shoot, I think I erased it." He tells you not to worry.

    You arrive at the building. It's old, dilapidated, in a russian immigrant-dominated district. Mark goes and knocks on the door. There is a brief exchange. The man there gives Mark a box, while Mark pays the man.

    He walks back and says, "Are you sure it was green ocean? I had to bribe that guy with a hundred dollars to have him give it to me."

    Bob comes around the corner and walks up to the man. There is a brief exchange, and the man points to the car. He walks over to the car. "Thought you'd get here before me. So did you get the package?
    "Yeah, I told the guy green ocean, but he made me pay him."
    "Green ocean? It was blue moon."

    It's the sort of thing that's used for passive surveillance.

    You get to the address. It's an office building that's been closed down for the day. Mark is still pretty mad at you, but he seems to be cooling down a bit. Your phones all ring at once.

    >> ConspiracyGM !/Kdp27qTEY 01/05/10(Tue)01:57 No.7434026

    The spot corresponds to an area above one of the cubicles. The person who works there has a koosh ball and a few other knickknacks on his desk.
    You stand up on the desk and remove one of the ceiling panels. You put the camera in a corner, with a little piece broken off for the rather small lens to fit through. You look around for wiring to tap into, but it's too dark to see.

    The files are in cabinets about 20 feet from the cubicle. You tell Mark and Bob to go look around for some files.

    Using your cellphone as a flashlight, you find a brightly-colored cable. You find a letter opener on the desk and use it to hack through the outer covering to tap into the current. You then use scotch tape from the guy's desk to secure the assembly.

    Bob and mark return as you put the tile back into place. "This place apparently handles shipments of materials overseas to and from Singapore. Computer hardware, mostly."
