    Well as for distance learning there's penn foster, sonoran desert institute, and agi. Sonoran desert institute I've heard good things about. As for on campus learning, I've heard really good things about Trinidad state in Colorado.

    Greetings,
    One question. What is your background and specific experience that you can use to further your goals?
    Gunsmithing has it's hidden attributes and requirements. Expensive tooling capabilities, specialty tools specific to the variety of different manufactures, and Liability insurance out the roof. Licensing, both state and Federal levels.
    Not to discourage you, but also creating a customer base through your reputation, which you'll have to create, is essential.
    I do wish you a great deal of success. I just hate to see you spend your retirement money for less than satisfactory results.
    Good future to you! And regardless, enjoy your retirement as you've earned it.
    Hobie

    NRA Summer School is the ticket if you're not a full time student. Go to Trinidad.
