    Trigger so when your Unit, "Villager" is holding his "Pistol" item he can walk up to his "Closet". When in the region I've made he gains a new ability "Open Closet". When the ability is used he locks selection onto a unit named "Closet". This closet can store and withdraw your "Pistol" with 2 abilities, "Store Pistol" and "Withdraw Pistol" which is triggered to remove the Pistol and add it while removing and adding store and withdraw Pistol ability to the "closet" unit. When I try this trigger, whichever store or withdraw is used first, the second time using the ability is basically has null effect (the trigger doesnt run a second time).

    My trigger doesn't work, if I could get one that works i'd be happy to give rep.

    Well, one thing went wrong on the triggers: The condition in the Open Closet trigger should be "(Triggering unit) Equal to Villager (Male 2) 0011 <gen>", not "(Triggering unit) Equal to Closet 0015 <gen>".
    I tested it and it works.

    I'm such an idiot, I'm sorry for making you look at it, I was just getting annoyed with it so I didn't want to review it.

    Last question, can this be used for various items like, Store/Withdraw Pistol, and Store/Withdraw Belt, and Store/Withdraw Torch...

    Of course, although your system is not flexible enough, since it requires an ability for every item-type you have, it can be done.
