A friend can camo- paint a cheapo .22 auto pistol, tie on a pc of fishline, swing it around a few times, and throw that sob nearly 100m, at night. It will probably just lay out there in the grass next day, til the inmate who KNOWS to look for it recovers it. He's ALREADY dug a hole for it under the sod of the yard someplace, of course, next to a metal post, bleacher, etc, so the metal detectors will be screwed up in that area. Then the negotiations start between his attorney and the prison's warden. Get your sentence under 5 years(actually left to SERVE) you can go to an unfenced "camp", if u have no "violence' in your jacket. VERY few dope sentences, "maintenance-$" sort of dealing, go over 10 years, actually SERVED, and most don't go over 5 years, in State prisons anyway. Just know enough to NEVER sell base or "crack" coke. Stick to powder-coke, get about 10% as long a sentence as if you sold "rock" coke. Almost no unarmed bank robber gets more than 5 years, first offense, and the armed ones rarely get over 10 years, first offense. So ONE buddy, with some balls, who knows what to do, CAN get you OUT.
