There is also a shotgun hidden in the police station in the room on your left as you enter, then to the room at the right at the end of that one. The shotgun may not respawn as soon as you enter, but in at least 60 seconds one should appear. You can use this available shotgun to reach Hitman status with.

To raise your weapon skills quickly, enter a dance club, such as the "Alhambra" in the Idlewood area. Begin shooting people with the weapon of your choice. Doing so during the afternoon or night hours (12:00to 04:00) greatly increases the amount of people that respawn in the club. Since so many people spawn, you have a virtually limitless amount of people to "train" with. Doing so however, raises your wanted level greatly. Enable the "Lower wanted level" code or know where the police bribes are, as you will need them.
Admiral DuGalle.

Drive to the Burger restaurant where OG Loc is working. Mark the location of the Pay 'N' Spray near the beach closest to this spot on your map. Go into the restaurant with a two or three star wanted level. Order food if needed, then hold the place up. Everyone will crouch down into a fetal position. You may kill them if desired, as they have some money. The police will morph into the building but they will be in the same position as the customers. They will not shoot you, never stop coming in (usually seven at a time). You have all the time needed to reach Hitman status on any gun. Make sure you have at least 400 bullets or more. You may also go back out and immediately return if you get hungry, but you must hurry to the counter. Sometimes the police will be eating there and they will shoot at you immediately. However, as soon as you aim your gun, they will stop, but the food will not be available if this is done. When you are finished, make sure all seven officers are alive in the building (this seems to cause less police shooting at you on the outside), then hold X + Left Analog-stick Right to run around to the back of the building. There are always two vehicles parked here. Take one and make two rights then a left to the Pay 'N' Spray. Wait inside until the flashing stars disappear.

Shoot them first, and because you are in the shop, it has a lot of cover areas (for example, behind clothes racks and the counter). You should always be able to get a clear shot, but they may not. You will have the advantage. After you get five stars, enable the "Lower wanted level" code and go outside. Your skill should have increased by a large amount.

G to the Los Santos police station with your weapons out. You should get a two or three star wanted level. Quickly run to the second cell in the basement.

Use it to increase your muscle and stamina. when you need to eat, there is a free hot dog stand down the path east of the gym, or just save the game at your house. To get "Hitman" status with any gun, find the weapon of your choice and shoot people or cars. Try going to any parking lot and shooting cars. It is easier and they respawn if you ride a short distance away and return. You can get as much money as desired doing the fire truck missions, then going to the off track betting after getting at least $10,000. Bet 10% of your money on the last horse until you win. If you lose too much money, reload your game and return. Repeat this process until you have a good amount of money.

Once you pass Los Santos International Airport, fly to the top of the second altitude bar and release X to allow the plane fly in autopilot. About every three minutes, look at your stats and examine the Gang section to find that the Vagos or the Ballas have gained a territory. Sometimes the Grove Street also takes more territories. To get the entire map filled with gang territories, let the plane autopilot for over two hours. Check you plane periodically so that it does not crash in the ocean. Once you die, the territories will be visible on the map.

You will be able to drive through the town and use it like a giant shooting gallery. There is no need to worry if the military starts chasing you. The trolley car can ram right through the tanks, sometimes flipping them over. If your health gets low (you can still be shot by pedestrian cops), enable the "Health, armor, and money" code. This trick allows you to live a surprisingly long time while being hunted down by the feds. To enhance your experience, you can also enable the "Pedestrians riot", "Pedestrians with guns", "Aggressive traffic" and "Lower wanted level" codes, then relax and watch the havoc unfold around you all from the safety and comfort of a big red trolley car.

San Fierro: Fall off building and live:
Go to the Big Pointy Building (the one with a parachute) in the Downtown area and jump off. Open your parachute and land. Go back up to the top. This time, you will not get a parachute. Jump off. Before you hit the ground, you will hit the side of the building and slide down. When you are close to the ground, you should hit one of the many slanted poles that hold up the building. This will slow you down enough so that you only lose about one sixth of your health. Note: Sometimes you will not hit a slanted pole and lose more health or die.

San Fierro: Ride on top of tram:
Get in a car and place it across the track so that the tram will hit it sideways when it arrives. Then, jump on top of the car and wait for a tram to arrive.

G to very top of Mount Chiliad. There should be cars, a bike, and a parachute. Get on the bike and it should start a mission. Instead of doing the mission, go forward and you should see a flag with a ramp next to it. Get on the bike, go very fast, and jump off the ramp. Once you are going down, the screen should blur.
