Pronto is one of those guys who has always been around, but one cannot remember how they met him or when he showed up. Rumor has it that he is the son of an old slaver, but he does not get a lot of respect from them. He is a nice guy, and nice guys do not do well in Paradise Falls. Pronto has run Lock and Load since the last owner met an untimely end. According to Forty (then called Thirty-Two), the previous owner died when a weapon accidentally went off in his shop. If anyone knows differently, they are not saying anything.[Non-canon 1][clarification needed]
Pronto's inventory is extremely limited and he is always in need of parts. According to him, this is because his only suppliers are his fellow slavers and they keep all of the "good stuff" for themselves.

- "Guns, guns, and more guns. What do you need?"
- "You ain't got no artistic sense, man. There are a million different ways to kill someone, all it takes is a little imagination."
- "Yeah... you know, I could really get this little shithole going if I had some better stuff. First thing's first, bring me some Chinese Assault Rifles. People always need 'em for parts. Twenty should get me going."
