    For those of you needing something other than brick-and-mortar schools or correspondent/on-line courses;

    Penn Foster Gun Gunsmith Program

    The Sonoran Desert Institute - School of Gunsmithing

    NRA LE Training - Tuition Free Armorers Schools

    Shout-out to kerstingm for the following suggestions;

    Here are the links, first is the link for AGI which is by far the best out there (in my opinion) for an online option.

    American Gunsmith Institute

    Second is Modern Gun School (MGS), which is not a bad course, but they do seem a little on the disorganized side trying to get the materials to you in a timely manner, mostly on the supplies and practical projects. They also jump around a little too much in the topics where you might study stocks in one chapter then cover four or five more things then you're back into stocks again. To me I think we should stick with a subject finish it then move on. Just my opinion. All in all they do cover a lot of material with an option to get 21 (I think that's the number) optional specific firearm models for an additional cost.

    Modern Gun School

    I hope this helps with a some other options of what is available out there. - kerstingm​
