Some Survivors have starting weapons beyond the standard randomly dealt cards. They are indicated in their Blue-level skill. From the core box, Phil starts with a Pistol. From the promos, El Cholo starts with two Machetes.

I believe Phil starts with a pistol, if I'm not mistaken.

So does Phil start with a pistol, then the other survivors are dealt a pistol, crowbar, axe, and pans, or does Phil just automatically get the starting pistol?

In other words, when Phil is in play, do the survivors start with 2 pistols (Phil's and the randomly dealt pistol), or just one (that Phil gets automatically)?

The rules explain this:

First deal the random starting equipment normally. After that, anybody with a skill that grants them a weapon is given that weapon.

Great, the sentence explaining that does not appear in the Spanish version of the rules

Yeah, I've looked several times in the English rules, and I've not seen it. Maybe it's hidden away somewhere.

You can find it in the English rules avaible at Guillotine games site:

Randomly deal the starting equipment: a fire axe, a
crowbar and a pistol. That’s right kids, if there are more
Survivors
than starting weapons, well, that’s just too
bad... As a consolation everyone else gets a pan. Any
starting weapon listed in the Survivor Identity Cards
does not affect the above starting equipment.
Example: Phil is dealt randomly one of the starting
equipment. He then takes the pistol, listed in his
Identity Card, from the equipment cards deck.
