At this time, Fang Linyan had already chosen the 2 milestones of “Forbidden Music Listener” and “Gun Lover” as a breakthrough.
First of all, he would go to a gun shop where he could test shoot, trying to get the milestone of Gun Lover with 1 attempt, then he would inquire about the whereabouts of the Black Friday tune along the way.
After throwing out 2 copper coins as a tip, Fang Linyan was taken by a shabby boy to the southern part of Yangfan City. The commerce here was also quite developed, but it was more chaotic relatively speaking.
The boy stopped in front of a shop, then he said timidly,
“Sir, you can definitely find a satisfying gun here.”
Then the boy left.
Fang Linyan looked up and found that the shop’s sign was unique. It was in the shape of a big skull inlaid with yellow bullet shells. The name of the shop was also very strange. It was called Three-legged Dog, but the guns placed on the showcase didn’t look good. 1 of the barrels was even rusty; some had only half of the stock left, and it was burnt to black; there was also a grenade launcher that was distorted like a twist bread.
But when looking carefully, these weapons were all placed in oak boxes, surrounded by gold rims, and finally cushioned with red silk. They looked quite solemn, and there seemed to be a nameplate underneath.
“Boy, you seem to be interested in my brothers?”
A voice suddenly came from behind Fang Linyan. A burly middle-aged man, with neatly combed hair, meticulous clothing, and a straight waist, was talking loudly. He looked energized. Probably because his leg was hurt, so he even had a cane in his hand.
Hearing what he said, Fang Linyan was taken aback and said,
“Ah, I’m sorry? I didn’t seem to hear clearly. Did you make a mistake? You mean brothers?”
The middle-aged man immediately said loudly,
“Of course! Will I, Boozer, lie? The thing that can accompany you on the battlefield, help you kill those damn robot monsters, and always stay with you, what is it if it is not your brother?”
As he said, he pointed to the rusty rifle and said,
“This is my brother, Mr. Winsef. Taang. He started serving in March 47 in the New Calendar and retired in April 49 in the New Calendar. During this period, he killed 3 mechanical creatures. The reason for his retirement was due to a broken bolt, and the rifling inside the barrel was flattened.”
After hearing what he said, Fang Linyan was stunned and pointed to the grenade launcher and said,
“What about this gentleman?”
“Wow! Zhukov has made great achievements. During his 7 years and 10 months of service, he destroyed 8 Reaper and 2 Purgers, and even caused heavy damage to a predator warship. At that time, its appearance of emitting smoke was really gratifying. However, Zhukov’s luck was probably exhausted in the last battle. The Purger’s destructive flail smashed on Zhukov, causing him irreparable damage.”
While the middle-aged Boozer continued to talk with great interest, a strong wind mixed with sand and dust suddenly blew over, causing both of them to cough at the same time. Boozer began to frantically close the windows. Fang Linyan saw that he was struggling, he took the initiative to step forward to help. When they closed all the windows, there were already big drops of rain falling.
In such inclement weather, Iron Fist Brotherhood directly stopped the power supply to non-critical areas. The middle-aged man took out the matchbox from the side and swiped it on the wall; an orange flame ignited. Of course, it was accompanied by the pungent smell of sulfur.
Immediately afterward, he lit a lantern that had been wiped clean and hung it on the wall. The dark room was brightened instantly. Although it seemed like a grocery store with a wide range of goods, a wall had been specially opened to display the firearms, which looked quite professional.
At this time, the sound of wind and rain were mixed together. It could only be described as a dreadful clamor. After a strong wind blew, the entire house was shaking slightly; little dust fell from above. Boozer found a towel to wipe his face, then he looked at Fang Linyan and said,
“Boy, you were wandering outside my shop, do you want to buy something?”
Fang Linyan nodded and said,
“Oh, I’m here to look for guns.”
“Then you are really discerning because you are already standing in the best gun shop in Yangfan City. I only sell fine products here!”
“May I know what you need? Just tell me. In fact, few people have been patient enough to listen to my introduction to the 2 old guys. Because of this, I can give you a 20% discount. “
After hearing this, Fang Linyan said,
Then he walked to the gun holder,
“By the way, can I take it down and see it?”
Boozer shrugged and made an inviting gesture. Fang Linyan went to check it, and he took it off the gun holder and looked at it carefully.
To be honest, these weapons were well maintained. They should be disassembled frequently and wiped with gun oil. The surface was very smooth and spotless.
But the first pistol immediately made Fang Linyan feel a little inappropriate because firearms were, after all, industrialized products with many metal parts inside. For Fang Linyan, who had the top level of benchwork, could almost know the conditions of these parts!
“This gun looks okay on the outside, but it’s just superficial. At least, 3 parts are refurbished. The durability of the other 2 parts is extremely low. If this gun is used a dozen times, there will immediately be a problem.”
After just touching it twice, Fang Linyan came to this conclusion in his mind.
However, a gun could not explain much, so Fang Linyan took down another KMC rifle. This rifle was obviously modified to deliberately strengthen the range and armor penetration, but the weight and noise were significantly increased. This gun seemed fine on the surface, but it was just fine; it was still too far away from being a quality item.
When Fang Linyan saw the third gun, the urge to comment was already surging in his throat, reaching the point of unstoppable.
Because this stun gun had a complicated structure, so according to Fang Linyan’s visual inspection, at least 3 different parts of the old gun were used for assembly. Some parts even had to be forcibly bent before they could be assembled together. The gun seemed functional, but Fang Linyan could make a bet that if this gun could fire more than 10 times, he would share a photo of him wearing a bikini!
Now, Fang Linyan already knew what kind of goods were sold here……..
His original purpose was to find a cheap bargain here. He wanted to see if he could find a weapon that could be recognized by the Space, then he would buy it directly with platinum coin. Wasn’t that a beautiful plan? However, the truth was always cruel. The boss here just regarded him as the “cheap bargain”…
After discovering the truth, Fang Linyan shrugged and carefully put down the gun, then he said,
“I’m so sorry, I don’t think the guns here are suitable for me.”
Boozer’s face suddenly showed a hint of astonishment, and he said sincerely,
“What? I have all the good things here! Everyone is a rare quality gun! Boy, look at you, you are so weak. Walking alone on the wasteland is really dangerous.”
After finishing talking, the middle-aged man easily took a Mauser rifle from the gun holder. Fang Linyan was familiar with this gun and couldn’t help saying,
“This, is this what the legendary…”
Boozer immediately said,
“Yes, it is the famous 98K! When the enemy sees it on the battlefield, they are frightened!”
Then he handed the weapon directly to Fang Linyan,
“Trust me, it is your partner in this life. It can protect you from others, help you find food, let you escape from those damn mechanical creatures, and help you rescue beauty from bad guys. …….”
“I have treasured this gun for 30 years. It’s called William. It’s like my godson. Today, I think it’s a good match for you, so I will only sell you 2 platinum coins. You have to treat him well.”
Fang Linyan took the gun stupidly, and he couldn’t help but complain in terms of its weight. It was not as heavy as a child’s toy gun.
Then he tapped on the gunstock… he was stupified instantly. Although he was mentally prepared enough, he did not expect that someone would compact it with sawdust and apply a layer of paint on the surface to pretend it as an oak gunstock.
He didn’t dare to dismantle the gun at this time. In case this thing, oh no, Mr. William had any accident, wouldn’t he really have to use 2 platinum coins to compensate!
For an instant, Fang Linyan felt as if he had touched hot coal, then he extremely carefully put Mr. William back onto the gun holder.
Then, he first put his hands in his trouser pockets. This was to prevent Boozer from suddenly passing strange things over again. He then said in a decisive tone,
“I’m sorry, sir, what is the platinum coin you said? I only have copper coins.”
Boozer was stunned, but he immediately said with a big smile,
“It doesn’t matter, copper coins will do as well. Please allow me to introduce Mr. Laxia to you… Hey, hey, what are you doing? Don’t open the door, it’s still stormy outside. It’s very dangerous!”
TL: The legendary toy gun🤣?
