Emmet vs Ammu-nation

Recommended Posts

Gian_Yagami

Did US have public gunshop just like ingame shop called "Ammu-nation"? I think if Rockstar put Emmet as gun dealer instead ridiculous public gunshop, the game will have more taste.

Yes, Although they are not as flashy. Most try to remain out of the public's eye regarding Outdoor signage.

There are many such gun shops All Individually owned.

 

The only National Gun Store I am currently aware of is Cabel's, and many do not know that they sell weapons. As their prime advertising is clothing, and sports equipment.

did actually we can buy guns at Emmet's just like written in this site? http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Emmet%27s

Emmet's is not a "store" It is a Free "Pickup" of only the .45 model 1911 Pistol. In the Alley. The lined piece is a Hype-piece to make it sound better than it is.

The Tech-9 (On Sweet's roof), the Mac-10 under the bridge also in the Rain Channel, may be more useful pickups.

Yes indeed, I always pick tec-9 on sweet's roof. There also pistol at corner of Ganton (between sweet's house and OGLoc' house), EZ game.

Ammunation shops were the most useless thing in SA.

You can complete the game without visiting them once.

(I myself never bought any guns or weapons)

But i agree. Having emmet as the source of weapons would have been more realistic.

Only for the early stages of the gang. Once CJ was exiled it wouldn't make much sense for CJ to go all the way into central LS to get weapons.

I agree with this. Emmet as weapons source during Los Santos walkthrough until King In Exile, this would be just realistic.

Can't go wrong with the trusty pistol. Especially when you get up to the mission "Ryder" and take the pizza guys shotgun

There is a mod called Gun Seller that allows you to buy all weapons in the game from Emmet. You call him up on your phone and he drives to meet you and sell you weapons at a discount price. Its great for realism roleplaying during gameplay. Check it out if you play SA on PC with mods.

It does not mean that they should have been omitted from the game. Its still more realistic to have them in the game, seeing as gun stores exist in the real life counterparts of SAs locations.

Huh ?? Bro, there is an Ammu-Nation in all 3 cities (2 in LV alone) and in most of the small towns in the state of San Andreas. Seriously, did you really play this game properly ? Im not so sure you did based on this comment among others youve made.

 

I will agree with you about the trusty 9mm pistol. Its my favourite weapon and I can use it alone with nothing else easily.

I'd have definitely liked to buy weapons from illegal weapon gunshops in some parts of the map, similar to those underground shops in IV. LS, countryside, and desert areas are perfect for illegal shops located in the most unusual, hard to reach places. It just feels very fitting for a criminal. Some interesting banter and missions could have been also introduced. Similar to Far Cry 2 side tasks.

But, I also want Ammunations in the game, featured in SF and LV. They are similar (to an extent) to the actual gun shops in US for purchasing weapons legally.

This way we could have had both types of shops.

This is why I love mods. :D

If one uses their imagination even more in depth you could even roleplay realism with gun purchases without mods in SA. In real life America, it is extremely hard to buy guns within the limits of most major cities. Most criminals from the city get their guns from suburban and countryside towns well outside of the city limits, where it is much easier to buy or obtain guns. For instance, only buy guns from the Ammu-Nation in the small towns, but never the 3 cities.

I've been looking for the said mod yet what I found was gun shop on grove. It's not what I want because it's unrealistic for street gang dealers to own and sell all guns that I can't but from Ammu-Nation. I'd also love to have hardware stores just like the ones from GTA VC as well.

Wrong mod you found. You want the Gun Seller mod. By pressing F6 you can call up Emmet and he will send gang members to drive to you anywhere on the map to sell you weapons, not just in Grove Street.

 

It is indeed realistic for gang members to sell you all kinds of firearms and artillery. Youd be very surprised as to what weapons real life street gangs can get their hands on.

This part of the Forum is NOT for Mods. There is a special Forum for the Modding Showroom.

\

There is also No Need to BUY any weapon available in the game. Some Exploration will find every weapon for Free as a pickup.

The Ammu-Nation is in the game for sub-game event at those that have a Firing Range, and the favourable glitch that allows for quick ammunition Doubling.

Emmet was useless person in the game it's only a gun spawns in there and doesn't even give you much ammo, and there's even one ammu-nation near his place that sells much more weapons and ammo lol i dunno what was rockstar games thinking back in 2003 / 2004 when they made the game and they added this useless feature...

Hardly useless as Emmet is a "school" for shooting.

Emmet is also pre-Ammu-Nation.

Many players are averse to Exploring, and never find the easy FREE pickups, other than by accident.

Every weapon and body armour is available for FREE pickup somewhere on the map.

True, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has no taste.

 

It's a joke.

 

I would like it to be much more realistic, but... yeah.

I'm honestly not certain if there's anything such as the Ammu-Nation in real life, but the underground gun shops introduced in GTA IV had far more charm in my opinion. I'm also good with Jacob's gun van, which is basically what Emmet should've offered in San Andreas (well, maybe with lesser weapons, as he isn't as powerful as the Yardies).

Don't be so silly.

 

1. It is not useless if you are still going to be given a gun with ammo, no matter how small the amount of ammo. You still have a gun to use and shoot at enemies to defend yourself.

 

2. Emmet was supposed to be a very low-level minor gun dealer. The story clearly demonstrates this in the dialogue with CJ and his GSF homies. They ridicule Emmet for not having much on offer to sell, hence why Emmet only gives you one pistol and small mounts of ammo. 

 

3. It would silly to be given lots of guns at the start of the game's story. You should have to work your way to unlocking such rewards, not just be given them. Otherwise, what is the point of a challenge in the game ?

1. Yeah gta games are easy to complete even with just a pistol if you have good aim.

 

2. Yup and Ryder and Smoke even get an AK-47 from his shop

 

3. Yes like you get a 3 star wanted level for entering in the countrysides and the other 2 cities and other tattoo shops are there but i never liked that you have to play the whole game to unlock all the clothing shops that's dumb imo at least Bully and GTA V didn't have that problem... And you can go inside without a problem

Yeah i agree specially weapons

Of course there is. There are many legal gun stores in the USA where anyone with a valid permit can just walk in and legally buy a gun. It is just that different states have different laws as to how they regulate them.

It would really be cool to see Emmet shown once again in the storyline,being able to give weapons that Ammu-nation doesn't offer,maybe couriers from GSF or Emmet himself coming with vans(such as the Burrito)or motorcycles(such as the Sanchez).

Emmet was useless. Wasn't there a Tec 9 on Sweet's roof? That and whenever I ran over a hooker I would get a pistol every now and then.

I get guns with respraying the tags (LS), taking photo shoots (SF) and collecting horseshoes (LV).

 

The only moment I used Ammu Nation is after The Green Sabre and when helicopter falls in Da Nang Thang (which is really annoying).

 

I never paid attention to Emmet.
