Am I selling? Yeah. Am I selling to you? No. Sorry to hurt your feelings, but you're small time. Move along.

Alexander is a Gun Runner at 188 trading post in 2281.


Alexander is a salesman for the Gun Runners and appears beneath the 188 trading post in the Mojave Wasteland. He also makes trips to Camp McCarran and Hoover Dam around once or twice a week, to make sales and to take gun and ammunition orders. He usually just stays at the trading post because caravans take that route to avoid the I-15. He also checks his and their stock and directs their shipment deliveries. He must also make very good money as he states he is able to visit the Strip once a month and still save money for retirement.
