None. Sam is trained in various forms of armed and unarmed combat, and is a skilled marksman. He sometimes wore a bulletproof vest. He trained himself relentlessly in automated training sessions, utilizing live ammo against himself.
Initially, Buchanan was single-mindedly resistant to believing in the existence of the occult. Despite witnessing and participating in numerous adventures involving magic, demons, etc., he continued to rationalize things as having some mundane explanation. Eventually, even he was forced to see the light, and accept the existence of the occult. But that doesn't mean he had to like it.
Sam also was quite attracted to Victoria Montesi. Eventually, he learned that she just didn't swing his way, although he never quite accepted it.
Buchanan later obtained a version of the Exorcist gun, derived from Frank Drake's weapon, Linda (named for Linda Blair). This weapon released blasts of energy that specifically attacked the structure of magical beings.
