'''Ammu-Nation''' is the standard and main gun shop in all [[GTA III Era|Grand Theft Auto III era games]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]. There the player can purchase [[Body Armor|armor]] and an assortment of [[weapons]], from a [[pistol]] to [[grenade]]s. The name ''Ammu-Nation'' is a portmanteau of ''ammunition'' and ''nation'', which implies the store is patriotic. The store opened in 1962. It seems to be the most long-lasting business in the GTA series.

'''Ammu-Nation''' is a major chain of gun shops featured between [[GTA III Era|Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. The chain primarily specialized in offering the player an assortment of [[weapons|firearms]] from [[pistol]]s to [[grenade]]s, as well as [[Body Armor|armor]], in exchange for [[money]]. In the beginning of the game, Ammu-Nation stores tend to have only weak weapons in stock; more powerful weapons are unlocked as the player progresses through the storyline.

The name ''Ammu-Nation'' is a portmanteau of ''ammunition'' and ''nation'', which implies the store is patriotic. The store opened in 1962.
  
The store is absent in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], explained by the [[Julio Ochoa|mayor]] having strict gun control laws. Instead, [[Niko Bellic]] can buy weaponry from underground arms dealers or from the trunk of his friend [[Little Jacob]]'s car. However, in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], the store makes a return, but this time it is online.
+
The chain is absent in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], explained to have been shut down as a result of strict gun control laws passed by then mayor [[Julio Ochoa]]. As alternatives, players may either purchase weapon from [[Illegal Gun Shop|illegally operating gun shops]] or [[Gun Car|out of the back of mobile gun cars]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], Ammu-Nation resurfaces but has shifted its operations online. The chain returns in [[Grand Theft Auto V]].

Weapons are bought by walking over a floating weapon pickup inside Ammu-Nation stores. When the player enters the store, the camera switches to a fixed position at the corner of the store until the player exits the store. The clerks carry [[Shotgun|Shotguns]] and will attack the player if the player is aggressive (i.e. the player shoots the clerk with any kind of firearm).

Weapons are bought by standing on the red marker inside Ammu-Nation stores. A menu to choose the weapon is displayed. The player can preview the weapon by selecting the weapon without buying it and the clerk will bring up the weapon to display. Ammu-Nations only open up after the mission ''[[Doberman]]''. All clerks wield dual [[Pistol]]s and will open fire if the player shoots inside the store or aims their gun at him.

There are a total of four different Ammu-Nation interiors, of which three feature shooting ranges. There is also an unused interior which features two floors and can only be entered using certain cheats or with cheat devices. The store is otherwise functional if entered properly.

Ammu-Nation stores in GTA Liberty City Stories distinctively combines design traits from both GTA III's and GTA Vice City's Ammu-Nation. Just like in GTA III, the same fixed camera view returns which makes the players unable to use first person view weapons like [[Sniper Rifle]] or [[Rocket Launcher]]; however, the game requires the player stand on the yellow marker in front of the counter to purchase weapons, and utilizes GTA Vice City's weapon selection system. Clerks carry [[shotgun]]s and will attack the player if aimed at or the player fires a weapon inside the store.
The Ammu-Nation stores in GTA Liberty City Stories functions similar to GTA III. The player will buy the weapons by walking into the yellow marker.

The Ammu-Nation stores in GTA Vice City Stories functions exactly the same as in GTA Vice City. But all clerks inside the stores carry Shotguns similar to GTA III and Liberty City Stories. The cost inside the parenthesis is the discounted price of the weapons after completing [[Phil's Shooting Range]].

These places test your skill in handling your weapons, and can be used simply to improve gun handling skills. Passing the shooting ranges offers the player a small sum of money as a reward, and completion of a shooting range is often necessary for 100% completion of the game.

Ammu-Nation radio commercials make it clear that the store is run with with a right-wing paranoia philosophy, describing itself as the "store leading the fight against communism". The store also seems to promote the purchase of its products for illegal purposes, even suggesting they be used to kill one's mother-in-law if she is "being a bitch". There is also one in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] that mentions an anti-aircraft gun 'actually used when [[Australian-American War|we whooped Australia's ass!]]'

However, the picture is hidden behind a wall and is not normally seen during gameplay. To see it, the player must stand at the inner end of the store's counter, aim a rocket launcher out towards the street, then turn around while still aiming so they can see through the wall.

[[Image:Ammu-Nation-GTA3-logo.gif|right|Ammu-Nation logo]] '''Ammu-Nation''' is the standard and main gun shop in all [[GTA III Era|Grand Theft Auto III era games]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]. There the player can purchase [[Body Armor|armor]] and an assortment of [[weapons]], from a [[pistol]] to [[grenade]]s. The name ''Ammu-Nation'' is a portmanteau of ''ammunition'' and ''nation'', which implies the store is patriotic. The store opened in 1962. It seems to be the most long-lasting business in the GTA series. At the beginning of the game, Ammu-Nation stores have only weak weapons in stock. As the player progresses through the storyline, more powerful weapons are unlocked. The store is absent in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], explained by the [[Julio Ochoa|mayor]] having strict gun control laws. Instead, [[Niko Bellic]] can buy weaponry from underground arms dealers or from the trunk of his friend [[Little Jacob]]'s car. However, in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], the store makes a return, but this time it is online. ==Stores== ===Grand Theft Auto III=== [[Image:Ammu-Nation-GTA3-Portland-exterior.jpg|thumb|right|Ammu-Nation store in [[Red Light District]], [[2001]].]] [[File:Ammu-Nation Blip.png|thumb|100px|The Ammu-Nation blip on the radar.]] Weapons are bought by walking over a floating weapon pickup inside Ammu-Nation stores. When the player enters the store, the camera switches to a fixed position at the corner of the store until the player exits the store.

Ammu-Nation is a major chain of gun shops featured between Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and Grand Theft Auto V. The chain primarily specialized in offering the player an assortment of firearms from pistols to grenades, as well as armor, in exchange for money. In the beginning of the game, Ammu-Nation stores tend to have only weak weapons in stock; more powerful weapons are unlocked as the player progresses through the storyline.

The name Ammu-Nation is a portmanteau of ammunition and nation, which implies the store is patriotic. The store opened in 1962.

The chain is absent in Grand Theft Auto IV, explained to have been shut down as a result of strict gun control laws passed by then mayor Julio Ochoa. As alternatives, players may either purchase weapon from illegally operating gun shops or out of the back of mobile gun cars. In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Ammu-Nation resurfaces but has shifted its operations online. The chain returns in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

GTA III

Weapons are bought by walking over a floating weapon pickup inside Ammu-Nation stores. When the player enters the store, the camera switches to a fixed position at the corner of the store until the player exits the store. The clerks carry Shotguns and will attack the player if the player is aggressive (i.e. the player shoots the clerk with any kind of firearm).

Ammu-Nation is featured in GTA III's official website in the Portland section of the website. It includes an audio advertisement and a pop-up to Ammu-Nation's website.

GTA Liberty City Stories

Ammu-Nation stores in GTA Liberty City Stories distinctively combines design traits from both GTA III's and GTA Vice City's Ammu-Nation. Just like in GTA III, the same fixed camera view returns which makes the players unable to use first person view weapons like Sniper Rifle or Rocket Launcher; however, the game requires the player stand on the yellow marker in front of the counter to purchase weapons, and utilizes GTA Vice City's weapon selection system. Clerks carry shotguns and will attack the player if aimed at or the player fires a weapon inside the store.

Ammu-Nation is featured in GTA Liberty City Stories's official website in an e-mail under the name "Y2K is Coming!"

GTA Chinatown Wars

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, there are no stores, but weapons can be purchased on the Ammu-nation website via the PDA that will be delivered to the nearest safehouse.

Ammu-Nation scratch cards can also be purchased at various stores, and the player can win body armor or various weapons. Ammu-Nation apparantly sponsors a "Guns For Ca$h" amnesty program with the LCPD, although the player cannot make use of this.

GTA V

Ammu-Nation returns as an in-game store in Grand Theft Auto V. Like its previous appearances, players are able to purchase different types of weapons. For this appearance, players can also customize different weapons with different modifications, like suppressors, extended magazines, fore grips, scopes and sights, color tints for different weapons, etc. The company has stores in Vinewood in the Vinewood Plaza shopping center, Chumash in Chumash Plaza, Paleto Bay, Cypress Flats and Pillbox Hill, Los Santos and one in Sandy Shores, Blaine County.

Shooting ranges

Shooting ranges can be found in some Ammu-Nations throughout the GTA III series and in GTA V. These places test your skill in handling your weapons, and can be used simply to improve gun handling skills. Passing the shooting ranges offers the player a small sum of money as a reward, and completion of a shooting range is often necessary for 100% completion of the game.

Commercials

An Ammu-Nation advertisement in GTA III.

Ammu-Nation radio commercials make it clear that the store is run with with a right-wing paranoia philosophy, describing itself as the "store leading the fight against communism". The store also seems to promote the purchase of its products for illegal purposes, even suggesting they be used to kill one's mother-in-law if she is "being a bitch". There is also one in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that mentions an anti-aircraft gun 'actually used when we whooped Australia's ass!'

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, there is an Ammu-Nation radio commercial about Saturday Safety Fun With Guns with Derek the Dodo.

Trivia

The hidden Ronald Reagan imagery found within the walls of the Downtown Ammu-Nation in GTA Vice City.
  • Inside the Ammu-Nation in Downtown Vice City in GTA Vice City, a picture of American president Ronald Reagan can be seen doing a thumbs up while wielding a pistol that was clearly used to fire at a bulls-eyed picture of Soviet head of state Mikhail Gorbachev. However, the picture is hidden behind a wall and is not normally seen during gameplay. To see it, the player must stand at the inner end of the store's counter, aim a rocket launcher out towards the street, then turn around while still aiming so they can see through the wall.
  • A target cutout in the Ammu-Nation stores in GTA San Andreas bears a likeness to GTA San Andreas protagonist Carl Johnson dual-wielding TEC-9s. The cutouts are derived from an early pre-release screenshot of the game.
  • In GTA Vice City and San Andreas, there are 2D textures on the walls of Ammu-Nation stores which depict unusable weapons, such as the AUG A1, FAMAS F1, Galil SAR, M1921 Thompson, Barrett M95, M4A1 SOPMOD, M1903 Springfield and the AKS-74U. Most of the weapons on the shelf were not manufactured during the game's timeline, including the Barrett and M4A1, and would be unusual to find in an American gun store as most of them were manufactured in Europe or the Middle-East, such as the Galil and FAMAS.
  • A popular rumor thought the clerk in GTA III and GTA Vice City was actually modeled after Dan Houser or Sam Houser. However, Rockstar has since commented that it was not and "it does look (but not sound) like a relative of" Dan Houser.[1]
