    In the gunsmithing forum under a current thread question this topic is likely to come up soon.

    im looking at lassen community college and trinidad state. from what i understand trinidad only accepts 15 studends that apply. so i need to try and pick a few fall back schools. are these ones good? any better ones?

    I really couldn't tell you. A campus school was not in the books for me.

    From what I have heard lassen community college has a very well known gunsmithing program. I am planning on attending this school shortly and thankfully it is only about 2 hours away from where I live.
    It would be pretty cool taking the course with another firearms talk member. Let me know how it's going.

    Check out Murray State College in Tishomingo, OK. They have a two year program and several NRA affiliated programs.

    i actually went to colorado school of trades. it is a great school and you learn alot. the owner is a prick but the instructors are awesome. i would reccomend it to anyone that likes to work on guns 8 hrs a day for over a year and not have to take other classes

    I have been talking to alot of people on here about this subject as well as local gunsmiths. Let me start by saying unless you wake up every morning thinking about weapons you may want to reconsider because it is a long tedious road to make it a good paying career where a second isnt necessary to make ends meet and takes great passion for weapons to do so. Colorado is where everybody has advised me to go due to its history and consistently awesome program. Good luck!
