get a degree in business also. learn how to attract investers, because starting a gun business, or any business for that matter is costly.

Take shop classes, get an FFL, and either go to a Gunsmithing trade school (one of the best is in Colorado), or find a gunsmithing master that would be willing to take you under his wing. (gunsmithing master does not mean Bubba in his shed (at least not most of the time ))

lol, I said "at least not MOST of the time". You fall into that small percentage of people who are master backyard gunsmiths.

lol, thats still more then I do. I have an old sxs that I have taken apart many times to refinish it (cold blue SUCKS, and I can't find the parts I need to make the guns safe and functional. ), but that is where my gunsmithing experience ends. I'm hoping to get into more gunsmithing, I just need to find another project, or finish the one I'm working on if I can get a decent finish on it, and find those parts. But that is for another thread. I think I may go start it now.
