This mission introduces firearms (Pistol to be exact) to the player, which the player keeps as a reward for successfully completing the mission. The mission also introduces Little Jacob, who will be important for the remainder of the game as a friend and source of jobs/missions.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
Go and pick up Little Jacob.
Go to Schottler.
Go to the lookout spot.
Wait for Little Jacob to get into position.
Get Little Jacob back to the cafe.
Niko picks up "Little" Jacob Hughes and drives him over to Dillon Street in Schottler. Little Jacob has heard from Roman that Niko has experience with weapons, so Jacob asks him to watch over a meeting he has planned, and gives him a Pistol (with 150 rounds) to do so. At the location of the meet, Little Jacob gets into position as Niko goes to the lookout spot.
Three gang members turn up, but only one was expected. They open fire on Little Jacob, prompting Niko to open fire too. After they are killed, another gang member appears on the roof. The player can shoot the man on the roof or can go down to the ground and pick up a brick and throw it at the gang member. This is not wise to do if you don't have body armour. After all the gangsters have been killed, Niko and Jacob escape the alley way with Little Jacob impressed with Niko's shooting skills. He then gives Niko his number so they can work together later on, and Niko then drives Little Jacob to the Homebrew Cafe.
Shortly after completing this mission, Niko will get a call from Roman welcoming him to the "family business". Niko can now call Roman anytime for cab-driving jobs.

Fail Cutscenes & Dialogues
Little Jacob is dead.
Niko Bellic calls Roman Bellic.
Bad shit happen, cousin. Jacob ain't around no more.
Jacob. Oh, oh... I don't want know what happened. Fuck, now I have to call his friend Real Badman. This ain't going to go well, cousin.
There is an SMG to pick up on a roof in the back alley where the mission takes place. It's a great chance to acquire a very strong weapon early in the game.
Also, take in note that if you had a Combat Pistol equipped with you, it will be replaced by the standard pistol given by Jacob. You won't lose ammo, though.
Little Jacob's thick accent makes him almost unintelligible. It may be useful to have the subtitles turned on during missions featuring him, although he should be easy enough to understand after three or so missions with him.
The gangsters drop ammo when they're killed -- look for the red glow and be sure to pick them up before leaving the scene.
The main part of the mission will not start if you have a wanted level.
The rival Jamaicans arriving at the meeting will be randomized models of the Hillside Posse.
Jacob's gunfire does no damage to your enemies. But Jacob will not get killed no matter how long you take to kill the goons. However, if the player walks away during the shootout, the mission will fail saying Jacob was killed.
If you call 911 for police during the mission, you will be told that they are unavailable. If you have a police car, you can use the onboard computer to call for backup, however the police are unable to kill your enemies.
The mission name may be a homophone of the tropical climate of Jamaica, and a slang term for weapons.
This is the first official appearance of Little Jacob (not counting his cameo in First Date).
The Ruiner that the other Jamaicans showed up in has a unique color not seen anywhere in the game.
The gangster's vehicle will often be parked in such a way that blocks the driveway where you parked. Making matters worse, it may cause a traffic jam with police cars involved; be very careful when driving away.
