If You have access to a gun smith that is close just go and ask him if he needs good cheep help
on occasion and that you want to learn . There is a lot of grunt work that needs to be learned
and it is a good way to get in the door.
Next would be to start a good on line school or go to one if available.
If none of this is a option then start by reading as much about gunsmithing and purchase some
good books and start slowly on your own.
Start with testing, cleaning,and accurizing factory rifles.(Bedding and floating,cleaning,loading
ammo and things that require no machining) and as you improve then start by buying a good
Lathe and basic tooling and learning how to use it.
This all takes time and you will get better as long as you try for perfection each time.(You may
not get it but you have to try if you intend to improve.
Everyone had to start somewhere .
