They're at EVERY intersection.

I don't want to waste my ammo for my precious sniper rifle, and my only secondary weapon is a pistol.

Are MAC-10's and Uzi's secondary?
How do I unlock them?

There is no way to deal with the guard posts, however there are routed I use around them like through deserts and jungles off road if you know what i mean.

The Mac-10 and Uzi are secondary and you must do missions for your gun dealer to unlock them.

There are usually Primary Weapon Ammo boxes at Guard Posts. So even if you snipe 3-4 guards, you still get your Ammo back (most of the time).

Just make sure you alway take a jeep with a turret on the back. Drive through the guard posts at full speed and if the enemy catches you and you need to stop, hit "C" to switch from driving to the turret. Then proceed to blow their brains out, fix your car, and continue on.

Drive around them if you want to.

Yeah you should do weapon dealer missions to unlock the MAC-10, combining it with the sniper rifle is a good combo, the pistols are kinda useless when you're surrounded. Also you can get more sniper ammo in an upgrade later on.

Better yet. Get one of the jeeps with the grenade launcher on the back. Aw man, those things are great. Especially for chasing the weapons convoys.

a) Drive around.
b) Use a rocket launcher. Almost every guard post has an explosive barrel and most have some form of ammo. and hitting it takes out almost everyone.

Drive through it at full speed (you will take damage) once on the other side hop into the 50 cal and unload on the occupants of the checkpoint as the run after you.

Actually, I find them very entertaining. Believe me, once you get farther with better weapons and the second half of the map, you'll find it fun to plan it out--should you spread fire throughout the area (the southern map is WAY better for burning), blow everyone/thing up with the GL? snipe everyone with the 50 cal? Mortar it? it's pretty fun.
