Just out of curiosity, how many people here that wrench on guns have attended an actual gunsmithing school? How many just learned on their own?
I ask because I get Vocational Rehabilitation as part of my benefits from retiring from the Army for medical reasons. The Colorado School of Trades has a highly touted 14 month course on Gunsmithing that I am interested in.
Since the school would free to me, perhaps even getting some of the tools on the gov't dime, it has my attention.
But few of the gunsmiths I've heard of locally, none so far can claim actual schooling.
Just soliciting opinions
