A member on another forum i visit has a BP pistol for sale. It looks close to the "kentucky" style i've been wanting. I had planned to buy a kit after Christmas & stain it to my own odd taste, but this one looks nice enough for a first foray into the BP arena to my undereducated eye. Any input at all could be helpful. It doesn't look exactly like any of the kits i've been considering. The trigger doesn't seem as "fancy" as most of the kits i've drooled over, but "fancy" isn't an attribute i really chase. The seller indicates that he has fired it a bit and that it gives all appearances of being in sound condition. I know i have some reading to do before i dare to "test drive" this pistol. I don't know the seller personally, but his other posts don't immediately reveal anything uncool. He has offered additional pictures, and sounds like a good guy. This one is not exactly what i want, but i think i have a buddy who will want it if i tire of it (assuming i don't blow my hand off). I'm not looking for anything more than a range gun and don't expect 2" groups at 50 yards. Thanks for the knowledge, guys!
