The army can and will provide gunsmithing training. Best part is, your actually making a living at it right away.

Trip286 Trinidad State is very good. The area is on the NM border near the NRA Center at Raton. Had some family that homesteaded there during the frontier days.

Yeah I looked at it, the job I've applied for is in Gould, between Ft. Collins and Walden. A long ways to go if I end up living in that area, which is what I'm hoping for.

Thats a long way from Trinidad. Walden is a nice area not far from the Free State of Wyoming. I have a friend in Red Feather, Colorado.
