The Paradise Falls Shopping Mart was selected as one of the test sites for receiving Nuka-Cola Quantum. Two centuries later its storefront became "Lock and Load", the Slavers mediocre weapons store.
Inside the Lock and Load, there is a workbench in the inner-left corner. The counter is littered with weapons. Behind the counter is the locker that holds Lock and Load's inventory, which requires a key to open, as well as two owned ammunition boxes sitting on the floor. Another owned ammunition box is on the desk next to the counter. To the left of the main counter, a cage containing a skeleton equipped with a party hat with a plate in front of it can be seen. The door which can be opened takes one to the basement where Pronto sleeps.
The shop has a very limited supply of anything and everything it does have is in very poor condition. Typically the store's owner, Pronto, only has around 150 to 400 caps on him at the very most. His repair skill is also very low. The only way to improve his inventory is to "invest" in Lock and Load by completing the Economics of Violence unmarked quest. This will not, however, improve Pronto's repair skills. After investing, the quality of the goods rises significantly.
- Bottlecap mine on the workbench.
- Lock and Load supply key - In possession of Pronto, opens locker behind the counter.
- The store does not actually close. One can enter the shop at any time and just go downstairs to talk to Pronto and trade.
- After investing in the shop, it will likely sell more of the rarer weapons in the Capital Wasteland, such as sniper rifles and scoped .44 magnums.
Lock and Load appears only in Fallout 3.
