A first look about pistoleer in Hammer and Sickle
It's not as easy as S2 or S3, because you play with a small team until you get Moshe, which is a team of 5 (Liz, Larry, Fidel, and you). Pistoleer require nearby mates who will back you up, and early HS is punishing enough it's nearly impossible for pistoleer.
In term of weapons, it's also the same: punishing. It's very rare to find same gun or enough bullets for pistol. 2 Luger, but you have to buy the small stock of ammo from Conrad. Possibly two M1917, but not enough bullets. Ditto with possible two TT guns.
The shops are refreshing after new clues appear that you can report to Center. The list is randomized, so we can do the save in world map and get in to check, reload if the stock is too poor.
A side note: Throw weapon do have familiarity, and it can help in reducing AP cost. Moshe come with 3, though we can not buy more of the same type (though different type of same class).
Fidel coming in at level 15 and very high ENG. training him a bit with lockpick, disarm mines, and you can push him to 170+, coupled with Oiler and he can repair weapons better than new.
