During the advent of the new rule where illegal-natured adverts become an OOC offense, I thought it was about time for another guide.
Today, we'll be handing out a few ideas/things to remember when you're a drug/arms dealer.
I'll also include a few practical OOC tips, that would hopefully reduce the amount of whining due to SAMP flaws.

OOC tips
1.) Tired of people MGing that you're selling a gun, despite your oh so clever "/me takes out a medium-shaped object from his backpack, which is wrapped in white cloth." Stick with /ame's! That way people would be less likely to see your gun dealing, OOCly as well.

2.) Tired of people MGing that you're selling a gun, who are alerted by the **Your_Name gives Their_Name a weapon**?
Try going inside an abandoned interior and proceed with your dealings there!


DOs
Always make sure you're in an appropriate place.
  • It's funny how people sell their guns in front of the news corp, in front of the pizza stack, in front of the general store etc. Not only is that very risky for YOU, but it's also non-RP. Don't be surprised when a random passer-by whips their cellphone out and snitch on you.
    Preferably, do deals in abandoned alleys, abandoned warehouses - heck, even your own house! Be creative and careful!
Keep an eye out and a certain level of suspicion.
  • I agree, this is very obvious but please allow me to go more into details. Look for suspicious cars that could be undercover SASP/FBI, the majority will be suspiciously cruising around your block 5-6 times in a row. If that doesn't hint that things are getting dangerous for you, you're a bit daft my friend. This also goes for people who just so "happen to be in the area." Always be suspicious.
Pack some heat for yourself.
  • The nature of your so called "job" is very dangerous, where your life and freedom is usually on the line 24/7.
    It's common sense that you'd want to pack a gun other than the one you're selling.
Always go alone, or at least appear to be.
  • Okay, so you've found a person who wants to buy some guns/drugs from you. You're also doing the deal in an abandoned alley. You're POSITVE that nobody suspicious is hanging around. BUT, you brought a buddy along.. which ends up in the buyer getting too intimidated and suspicious, hence cancelling the deal. If you're going to bring a friend with you, have him hide at least - so he can come in when something goes wrong.

DON'Ts
Avoid unoriginal, uncreative illegal-natured adverts.
  • Title says all. Adverts that are too obvious and repetitive will most definitely get attention from SASP or FBI.
    Unless you've taken the extra mile of RPly preparing real sugar for your "Selling sugar" advert, avoid doing this.
Avoid masking, hiding your face.
  • People tend to distrust people in this line of work easily. What can we do to fix this? /unmask.
    If you do honest deals with people (honest in the sense you don't scam/rob them in the process), you'll be getting more regular customers! Which ultimately means.. PROFIT!
Avoid giving out your name, better yet make an alias.
  • There are a lot of obvious pros in doing so, not only do you get known in the underworld under a harmless alias (of which LEOs would have a hard time tagging to your name, unless you fucked up big time)
Obvious DON'T is obvious.
  • Do NOT deal guns/drugs out in the fucking open. Don't open with "Hey, are you the buyer/seller?" If you were dealing with the FBI/SASP agent, you're practically digging your own grave.

RP tips for Buyers/Sellers

First of all, it's going to get pretty hard to find a dealer because they don't announce that they are.
If you've spent quite a bit of time in RCRP, you should know by now that it's the "gangs" who control the illegal trade.
So that's your first clue, find a person/group who you think is selling - be polite. Don't act like you're close buddies or anything, they might hate that ICly and just beat the shit out of you or flatly refuse to talk with you.
Start out the conversation slow, then gradually adjust depending on the situation.
Here are a few examples :

Person 1 : Hey, things are getting messed up 'round here huh?
Person 2 : Yeah man.. wait, who are you?
Person 1 : Nothing, nothing. Just passing by.. can't believe this place is going down the pits.
Person 2 : What do you mean?
Person 1 : Well, my brother died yesterday.. got mugged, shot in the head.. *sigh*
Person 2 : *shakes his head* What do you need?
Person 1 : Man, this place ain't safe anymore. You know anybody who can hook me up with some heat?
Person 2 : Yeah, yeah fo' sure man. You came at the right place.
**Proceed with buying the gun**

Person 1 : Hey man, what're you doing in a place like this?
Person 2 : Nothing, mind your own fucking business.
Person 1 : Chill! Just wanted to ask you if you knew what happened here..
Person 2 : What do you mean?
Person 1 : Murder. That's what. Poor guy got shot in the head.
Person 2 : Aw, fuck man. This place is getting more dangerous everyday.
Person 1 : You're right.. hey, if you need some protection yourself.. I'm your man, 'aight?
Person 2 : Hmm.. what you got?
**Proceed with selling the gun**
Be creative or reinvent some of these!
Got anything I missed? Post them below, thanks for reading.

I take the time to PM people who I think would benefit from reading these guides when I'm IG, actually.
It's the first time I've actually liked the /checknumber command xD
