During a snowstorm near Moscow, Idaho, a Marine gunnery sergeant accidentally rolls his car; while he calls for help, an unknown pursuer executes him with a pistol; two days previously someone used the same weapon in the same way to kill Rachmed, a vocal Indonesian supporter of radical Islam, suspected of dealing in illegal arms, shot in Los Angeles, California, 1,100 miles away. While Kensi and Deeks seek and find Rachmed's shoes, G and Sam fly to Moscow to join both Granger and the NCIS Red Team, a mobile team based in Georgia. Eric gets a lead, which Kensi and Deeks trace; the bunch in Idaho run into trouble with a snowplow. Eric finds a major clue; Granger sends G and Sam back to LA plus three members of the Red Team; upon arrival they chase bad guys but lose the main one. A man, Roy, arrives as a temporary guy on the Red Team; he shares a history with Paris, the head lady in charge of that team. The Red Team goes to El Centro to trace a lead.

The Red team uses Glocks. It's common knowledge that NCIS standard issue side arm is the SIG-Sauer which is the case for the regular cast members of NCIS: Los Angeles (with the exception of Deeks who is still an LAPD officer and has used a Beretta 92F which is the standard issue side arm for LAPD) and in the original NCIS.
