PM sent.

I did the Penn Foster course correspondence. Learned some things, but am a LONG ways from being a gunsmith.

This comes up many times. There are some good hands on schools out there, or find someone that you can apprentice with to learn. Maybe get some basic skills and offer limited services to a local gunshop.

Do a search here and there should be other postings with more info on the schools.

Start with a search of this site and others; the subject has been covered dozens of times from a number of angles.
