We will be assuming the default availability of guns in Golarion. Per the SRD:
“Emerging Guns: Firearms become more common. They are mass-produced by small guilds, lone gunsmiths, dwarven clans, or maybe even a nation or two—the secret is slipping out, and the occasional rare adventurer uses guns. The baseline Gunslinger rules and the prices for ammunition given in this chapter are for this type of campaign. Early firearms are available, but are relatively rare. Adventurers who want to use guns must take the Gunsmithing feat just to make them feasible weapons. Advanced firearms may exist, but only as rare and wondrous items—the stuff of high-level treasure troves.”
Guns and ammunition are not generally available for purchase, though the components needed to craft these items are generally available.
Metal cartridges may be crafted per the Gunsmithing rules. Advanced firearms may not be crafted by usual means, and must be acquired as wondrous/rare items. Methods may include side-quests, befriending influential NPCs, treasure troves, the liberal application of funds, and so forth.
Note that when using the Rapid Reload feat with firearms, you must select a specific type of firearm to gain the benefit of the feat. Rapid Reload may be selected multiple times to apply to multiples types of firearm.
