I. Intro
********************************************************************************

Hey, everybody. This is my first FAQ. I'm hoping to create more, especially for
GTA:SA. This guide's weapon locations will be entirely made up of input from the
readers. Please do not ask any questions about their location especially if I
have put it in the FAQ. I'm a little obsessed about proper grammar, punctuation,
and spelling. If you write me something, please write it correctly. If I can't
read it, I won't try! And please also don't write to me to correct me on
spelling and such. If you can read it enough to correct me, then others probably
can, too. Chances are that I will make a mistake or two; no one is perfect.





********************************************************************************
II. Weapons
