(After the mines, in the building, after that cut-scene, before going downstairs; there are two lockers near a desk. IIRC.)
... so, yeah, not like it's expensive to buy, but if you want to save... I don't know, a minute or something... it can be found.
Thats where I found it too, it was on my first playthrough so you don't have to have it unlocked or anything. I was wondering why that wasn't in the guide
