Finish high school first. Then you can enroll in a gunsmithing school.

Being a gunsmith is not like being a doctor. There are no regulations requiring schooling.

I know the schooling isnt necessary. Im just saying that if i feel i didnt learn what i needed to learn in the national guard then id consider schooling. Wht i need to know is if being in the armour division for 6 years in the national guard would be enough education to go on.

Dude, folks like Blackwater and Triple Canopy hire military trained armorers all the time.

Can't really say I like companies like that myself, but you said you wanted to bring down some big bucks.

You did come here for advice, right?

If you have made up your mind just say thanks, don't fight the help!
