How many here on the forum are actual certified gunsmiths? just wondering actually. I'm contemplating one of the basic courses myself, albeit distance learning. I feel I might be above some of the basics taught in an accredited course since I've done so much on my own over the years, but I want to get the official stuff, diploma, hang it on your wall things under my belt. I'd like nothing more than to take the Journeyman's course, and actually go through several months of hands on training under the guise of a professional gunsmith, but for now, that's out of the question. I care for firearms very much.....so much so that some that I've seen through friends or relatives has actually got me to thinking poor firearms care could be one of the original sins punishable by a trip through hell. I'm no kitchen table gunsmith at home, I take everything seriously, and I use my tools and firearms after the job has been done. This week, I'm going to make an investment for my future, and Gunsmithing would be something of a job (or part time) that I would enjoy immensely. I'm just wanting to get my foot in the door for starters, and that's all. The rest will come in time. Any advice would be more than welcomed. I'm serious about this, and my FFL will come along the way. Thanks.
