Hi guys,

I need to confirm with you. Does 关系 refer to a relative or telephone in this context?

下午,他通过关系,搞到了一把巴雷特狙击枪。

Thanks guys

    关, means “closed” while the character xi 系 means “system” and together the term refers to a closed system of relationships that is somewhat analogous to the term old boy's network in the West.[2]
