mucus:
it was sitting on the roof in plain sight, he picked it up from there.


also...why is the priest sitting on the roof of the church shooting people?

Ryqoshay:
If it were out in the open, in plain sight, then he would not have to pull it out from anywhere, as stated in the original post.

As for why he is on a roof, shooting people, maybe he is a citizen of Texas, and those other 49 lesser states. He is protecting the House of God from heathen ne'er-do-wells by giving them a horizontal hail of holy handgun delivered, hallowed tipped, lead justice! Halleluiah! Let the sacred blessings fire forth from the divine mouth at the end of the righteous rifling! Let me here the reports! Can I get an Amen?!

Because they wouldn't shoot people from on top a synagogue, now would they?

mucus:
I question the validity of a roof-sitting gun-toting priest.
Wouldn't someone like that do better in the wild west?

There are plenty of examples of similar situations already out there in the world. In the real world, all you have to do is go south of the Mason Dixon line. My first time ever playing paintball was with a group lead by a pastor. I never went, but he also lead a group that went to the rifle range on a regular basis. My cousin recently became a preacher, but still is an avid hunter, granted usually with a bow. However, he takes an annual trip to Canada to hunt moose and bear and uses a rifle to do so.

In fiction... oh, where to begin? Chrno Crusade has an entire church of gun-wielding holy men and women. Father Cornello has a gatling gun at one point. Wolfwood's cross is 'full of mercy.' There is a Chaplain among the crew of the original Dominion Tank Police. Paul Bettany seems to be typecast in gun-toting holy figure rolls as of late.

That's all my tired mind can come up with offhand, but I'm sure there are plenty of other examples. I should also point out that none of the examples I have listed take place in the wild west. Well, Trigun does have a bit of wild west flavor in it, but... My point is, Final Fantasy Tactics take place in a world that has guns. Why can't a priest in this world have a gun? Just so long as he has the proper paperwork, I see nothing wrong with it.
