So im getting really close to my goal of being able to buy a full set of caldari navy cruise missile launchers for my raven navy issue , and somethings holding me back, people have been telling me dont do it for fear of me getting suicide ganked? so im asking people and please be honest what are my chances of getting ganked?

Depends more or less entirely on two things.
Suicide Gankers wanting to gank your ship
And Suicide Gankers being around to gank you ship

If the only faction things fitted are your launchers, then your chances are pretty low.
Put on a complex shield booster or a CN invul and your chances rise greatly.

More mission runners in system, means more chance of suicide gankers operating in system.
A good rule of thumb is, if you are frequently being ninja salvaged in that system, you're chances of getting suicide ganked are very high.

And of course, don't fly what you can't afford to replace.

As I'm a w-space dweller, I'm in the habit of looking for probes on the directional scan every few seconds, even when doing a mission.

CN launchers and other faction stuff will not get you ganked. A lot of deadspace might. Officer gear will.

Tengu often get ganked because they usually have no buffer. If you pilot one, expect gankers to shoot-first-scan-later if you are in a Tengu.

Of course, if you are doing missions in Motsu you are also being stupid because:

* It's the gank capital of Caldari space
* There are better hisec agents for Caldari Navy (0.5 sec > 0.9 sec)
* There are other corps with better agents in lower traffic hisec systems

If you are careful you will not get ganked. Keep an eye for people scanning you out, have insta undock bookmarks, be weary of a large number of people jumping in your system around the same time.

Since you are in a CNR, you do not really have to pay attention to optimal and range, so just align to something the moment you enter the pocket. As soon as something shows up on scanner warp out.
