After discovering he will be assigned to the mission, he will take the gun he "found" and ask for permission to go get changed. When he discovers that we have rifles available Simon will offer his services there as well. "I've used a rifle a few times, and am handy with one against a moving target if we need it."
Up to this point, Lars had no reason to know there were rifles aboard.
At the invitation of Reginald Monday, the excursion party began to assemble in the aft passageway; the Captain and Dr. Burton appeared there also. Simon Lars saw that Catherine was armed with a hunting rifle, a Winchester 1910... a classic of sorts, .401 calibre, apparently in excellent repair.

He then goes in search of Reginald Monday. "Thanks for inviting me along. Not sure how much use I'll be, but I sure am curious to find out where we are. Listen, I've had a thought: maybe we should bring a diplomatic gift of some kind to present to the high honcho. Might smooth things over a little bit. I have no idea what that might be; maybe some nice silverware from the dining room? What do you think?"
"An excellent idea, Mister Evans," he replied. "Doctor, Catherine... can you suggest something?"
"A good knife is worth more to most native peoples than most things we might offer," replied Dr. Burton. "Oh, certainly, baubles and the like would work, but I'd rather do them some actual good. Captain, could we perhaps part with a steak knife or two?"
"I think we might be able to do that," he replied. Opening the door to the forward passage, he yelled "Mister Bishop, come here please!" When the chief steward had appeared, he continued, "Doctor Burton suggests we might offer the savages a few steak knives as a gift. Please see to it."
"Yes, sir," replied Bishop. "The cutlery is on B deck. Excuse me, please." He worked his way through the crowd to the stairs and went down.
"While we wait, let me pass out the weapons we've... collected. Mister Evans, here's one of the Lugers. We don't have a lot of ammunition for them. I've evened out the two weapons, so both have eight rounds loaded. Here, take this one too, give it to Mister Thornton when he appears. Mister Lars, here's the weapon you found."
GM Note: I like how Mak has done it here. Please list the items you plan to carry on your persons.
