please do a search on this site for "gunsmith school". This topic has been pounded to death.

In the gunsmithing forum under a current thread question this topic is likely to come up soon.

I really couldn't tell you. A campus school was not in the books for me.

From what I have heard lassen community college has a very well known gunsmithing program. I am planning on attending this school shortly and thankfully it is only about 2 hours away from where I live.
It would be pretty cool taking the course with another firearms talk member. Let me know how it's going.

Check out Murray State College in Tishomingo, OK. They have a two year program and several NRA affiliated programs.

I too have heard that Lassen Community College is a great school for gunsmithing.

Take a look at Trinidad State Jr college in Colorado it is a NRA affilated school, I went there 1979/81 they had good courses that will give you
a firm foundation in this field, hopefully someone who has graduated
in the past couple of years will chime in as I am sure instructors and
some courses have changed, hope this helps
