Okay, guys, I'm sure this thread has been done before but I wanted to get the opinions, thoughts and advice from people who have been there, done that. I'm 25, I've been shooting firearms since I was 6 and I am a self-proclaimed gun enthusiast. However, I've been wanting to step up my game lately and instead of just talking about and shooting guns, I've actually been wanting to work on them and even build them for a living. So obvious question first: How does one go about becoming a gunsmith? Second question: Is there a school that teaches you the finer points of gunsmithing? And Finally: Which school is considered the best i.e. has the best all-around curriculum? I'm very serious about this and have even been considering opening my own shop if I'm able to actually get all the tools and training that I need.
