To answer the question more fully, the best way to become a real professional gunsmith is to attend a gunsmithing school.

These are trade schools or junior colleges that offer hard core gunsmith training by master gunsmith/instructors.
This typically takes at least 2 years and costs some significant money.

However, if you can graduate from one of the better schools like Colorado School of Trades, or Trinidad Junior College you'll have world class training which is recognized industry wide as the best.
A degree from a good school will get you a serious job interview anywhere.
These schools aren't internet or mail order rip-off Billy Bob "training".
If you're not stone cold serious, don't bother coming.
