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

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.

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.

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

You can also check out Gunsmith School HQ . They have a map where you can click on your state to see available gunsmith classes including online classes. They also have a lot of other good references including gunsmithing videos, and how to get your Federal Firearms License, which you will need to become a gunsmith.
