you are suppose to be able to obtain unlimited ammo for the revolver from the police car near the hotel but this isn't the case in my game. The only thing that appears in this car in my game is the ability to turn the siren off and on. The comment was posted as recently as March of this year even though the game is as old as it is so I was thinking it should have been accurate. Was this patched, did it only work on PC or the 360, or what?
Hey you, yes YOU! If you're not going to answer the posted question, then don't bother to reply!

Unlimited ammo guns are pc mods. PC players can change the stats of the weapons in the game files on console game saves.
If you play co-op, you will likely see those guns, as well as unbreakable melee weapons, huge money drops, invisible grenade launchers, and "God" mode players.
Many items do respawn if you leave then return to an area, so they may have been referring to a respawning ammo pick up.
Other than buying or making ammo, killing human criminals that are scattered throughout the game is another way to resupply.
When you get to the jungle, there are also NCP's that will trade different types of ammo for various supplies. Some have to be opened through quests, like the guy in the outpost camp. He won't trade until you save the lady on the bridge and bring him some medical supplies iirc.

If you need ammo, you will automatically collect when you get close to it. If your ammo is full, there will be an "X" over the icon when you look down at it.
This may be what happened to you. There is an ammo drop at that cop car. When you got close, you instantly collected it. It's why you didn't see it. You will only see it if you don't need it.
Also, dropping a spare gun will add that gun's ammo to your inventory.

Shotgun ammo is found for free at the Supermarket (spawns on a shelf in that little office area), but a far more convenient and flexible source is at the Laboratory after you do a quest for the guy at the Lab's entrance.
Pistol ammo is by far the easiest to restock - just hunt down some Punks. A pair spawns roughly southwest of the Church.
Since you can reclaim ammo from guns when you drop them, loading up a gun and putting it in storage is a good way to store ammo should you need it, and you can use the above tips to refill them too.
