Sup, /k/? So I'm about to graduate from a state university with a rather non-practical degree (spanish/polysci). This, coupled with the wonderfully shitty job market for grads these days, convinced me a while ago that I should look into learning a trade or actual skill after graduation. What comes to mind most immediately is learning gunsmithing. I was fortunate enough to have essentially all of my school covered by scholarships, so I wont be graduating with any debt at all, and can (sort of) afford to pay tuition at a college where i can learn this skill. So far I'm looking at:
>Colorado School of Trades
>Trinidad State Colorado
>Pennsylvania Gunsmith School
>Murray State College
Does anyone here have experience with any of these schools? Or gunsmithing experience in general? Its something i've kind of always wanted to do but never thought practical, now it seems like a much more reasonable option where I will have an in-demand, marketable skill.
tl;dr: anyone on /k/ got experience learning gunsmithing? advice for a prospective learner?

So I've really gotten into black powder lately after going to a "rendezvous", (basically a 18th century renaissance fair held in places where you can actually shoot too), and I really want to get a NEW blackpowder smooth-bore, (hopefully between .45-.62 cal; percussion cap). But I have no idea where to begin looking for the weapon, let alone powder horns, powder, caps, etc. Any blackpowder shooters here? I'm hoping since it's morning in yurop that they might get to put some insight in too, as most places there can own BP. Anyway, general blackpowder thread, post, discuss, recommend, etc.

I need help, /k/ommandos. I am an 18 year old Montanafag who wants to buy a handgun. I know it is perfectly legal for me to buy one from a private seller, but no one in my area has my desired firearm. I know I can't purchase a handgun from an FFL at my age, but could I purchase one from an online retailer and get an FFL transfer? Technically I wouldn't be buying it from the FFL, so would this be legal?
