Last week I was at my FLG for a society game and one of the players mentioned in conversation that according to him, gunslingers could craft firearms. I'm pretty sure he's wrong on that and I couldn't find anything on any form that supported his claim, I know gunslingers can purchase ammunition at the same price as though they had crafted it. But they still have to pay full price for guns. Could anyone tell me if I just missed something obscure that he caught, because I do play a gunslinger myself and finding a way of getting guns cheaper would be a great help.
Gunsmithing does not grant the ability to craft firearms, ammunition, or black powder. Rather, it allows the purchase of bullets, pellets, black powder, and alchemical cartridges (with 1 rank in Craft [alchemy]) at the listed price, but does not grant a discount on the purchase of any firearm. Resold items gained through this feat are worth half the actual cost paid, not half the regular market value for the item. No PC can purchase a gun without this feat, even if they possess the Amateur Gunslinger or Exotic Weapon Proficiency (firearm) feats.
