Gunsmithing schools
 
Hey guys I'm thinking of getting into the business of gun smithing, and I was wondering if any of you guys would now a where a good gun smithing school is. I'm also interested in selling not only regular firearms but also nfa items.

Some tech schools offer the program. Next best thing would be a machinists course.

There was a thread on this just the other day...there is a website listed somewhere in it that had a list of the top and comments people made on different schools...one day my plan is to attend one of these and open up a range/shop..until then ill keep dreaming :cool:

From what I've heard, don't do an online school, and well I did and was not that happy, got the books and info but no help or hands on, I have plenty of firearms to practice normal things on, guess that will be my hands on.

Good luck finding a school there are few out there hands on in the class room ones.

im going to mongomery in NC. there one of the ones recommended by the NRA. from what i heard though they dont teach how to start a business though.

Penfoster in which I did the online schooling was ok if you had hands on already, but beside that the material was handy and will come in handy as well. Instructor is probably in the know on a lot but never seem to reach him with even the few small question I had. Have heard from others that had no probs at all with pen though. If you are brand new to the firearms world don't do the Penfoster course you will get lost in terminology and nomenclature of firearms.

Have a look at Gunsmithing Schools HQ which lists all gunsmithing schools in the US by state, provides reviews etc. Also some posts on online schools.

There's a "sticky" right at the beginning of this sub-forum which should tell you all you want to know.
