Trophy Hunter Errata Where?

The Trophy Hunter Archetype, a nice option for the ranger except for one minor problem.

Unlike the spellslinger and holy gun counterparts, the Trophy Hunter does not gain proficiency with firearms NOR the gunsmithing feat, heck they don't even get a starting gun!

Was this intended or did the trophy hunter just get pooched during the ultimate combat errata, for I have searched it high and low and all I have found in the errata are very few people asking about it but no real answers.

I was wondering the same thing today. It seems especially weird that the Firearm style that they get in place of their combat style does not provide any of that, or at the very least just the weapon proficiency.

I'm pretty sure the idea was to have amateur gunslinger include firearms proficiency. They probably changed it because that would make it simply better than the Exotic Weapon Proficiency feat, and this is a legacy.

I think it is only for Guns are Common scenerio, since then guns are martial weapons.

that doesn't really make any sense since the Holy Gun and Spellslinger are effectively built for the same scenario but still get the gunsmithing, proficiency AND a gun

I agree, it seems more like an oversight. For the time being, my group seems fine with letting them have the gunsmithing and proficiency.
