    Have one of those....and man is it a nice shooting gun. The balance and feel are just spot on.

    Collective wisdom sought-

    My father is a recently retired mechanical/aeronautical engineer. last christmas we got him a balsa wood model kit of a Folker Tri plane, he built it in 3 days :lol3-

    Thinking of a black powder rifle kit for this year (might take him a whole week :D)- Ideas for a "starter" kit, (complexity is likely not an issue, but ease of function, etc might be) Cap and ball I think he'd like more but I have no idea...

    Unless you REALLY like the flash in your face, go cap/ball. KY rifle perhaps? LOTS of possibilities for checkering, color, etc in those stocks.
