Get Unlimited ammo
You can exploit a game bug to effectively give Kang unlimited ammo with a gun of your choice. This trick will only work in the free-roam missions, as other missions won't allow you to holster your gun as the trick requires.
Pick up the gun for which you'd like unlimited ammo, and then pick up a secong gun to move the first gun to Nick's right hand. When your right-handed gun is low on ammunition, holster your guns and press R1 R2 to fire a shot into the air just once. Unholster your weapons and the right-handed weapon should have a full clip of ammo. Repeat the trick as necessary.
