most gunsmiths for the most part don't go into the profession with the idea of making huge amounts of money. many went that route simply because they had a love and passion of working on firearms. it's something they enjoyed doing and wanted to do for a living. being a gunsmith is a commitment to a way of life that many would like to do but in reality are incapable of doing. most of the gunsmiths i have met over the years, very, very few do it full time as their sole means of making a living with many doing it part time at nights or on the weekends. there are times when you will have nothing to do but twiddle your thumbs and then times when you need half a dozen people to handle all the work.
