    Easiest way to do this: Get the Bear (the armored personnel carrier). It's pretty close to invincible, especially if you upgrade it, and it has its own gun. You never even have to get out of the car. It's especially great on the Airport run; don't have to worry about the Brotherhood constantly destroying your vehicle and having to get another one.

    Note that you don't have to destroy the vehicles coming after you; just kill the driver and they'll quit following.

    If you haven't got the Bear from completing the Ultor mission, just get about 5 stars (4 in Saint's Row) and the police will start setting up roadblocks with Bears. Hijack one quickly and run to a Forgive and Forget. Then save it in your garage, and get all the upgrades. It's a great vehicle (also great in Snatch, and anytime you have to do a gang pushback).

    Fran1230koHey quick question? Everytime I start the activity it takes me away from the Bear, and I can't use it. Can you help me out?

    Troodon9999Yep, in order for this to work you have to have vehicle delivery, and ask them to deliver the Bear right after the mission starts.

    Just to add to Trooden9999's solution. To get the Bear at the start of the mission you have to of done at least level 3 of Escort in the Red light district.

    Level 3: Vehicle delivery 1000 dollars.
    Level 6: Vehicle delivery FREE.

    Then simply call for a delivery at the start.

    There are two locations you need to know:

    1) Hotels & Marina District (In the top corner next to the celeb. activity and the burger shop)

    -Level 3 Completed: Ronin Notoriety reduces 5% faster
    -Level 6 Completed: Ronin Notoriety reduces 15% faster

    2) Airport District (Next to the hangar where you can store planes; AKA your "crib")

    -Level 3 Completed: XS-2 Ultimax Shotgun at Crib
    -Level 6 Completed: Unlimited Shotgun Ammo

    Once you complete both activities, the achievement will unlock. Drug Trafficking is when you must protect a drug dealer driving around town, delivering drugs to people. You are in the passenger seat, and you can get out and follow the dealer. If your car blows up, get a new one. Eventually, the gang notoriety will get higher, and drug deals will become longer. And, the customer will sometimes run off, forcing you to kill them.
