Re: Learning Gunsmithing
I have a rather sour taste for VoTech schools so you may want to filter some of what I have to say.
There's a saying. those who can do and those who can't, teach.
Given a choice between one/two instructors and a shop full of 20+ year veterans it's pretty cut and dry the direction to go.
The rub is the veterans aren't as apt to spill their guts overnight on how the best way to chew on a piece of stock is.
That being said, persistence and a good attitude go a long way.
It's how I started and given what I've interviewed/dealt with from "top schools" it'll be a real challenge to convince me otherwise. VoTechs have a nasty habit of filling a guys head with delusions of grandeur that just aren't realistic in todays world/economy.
Regardless, good luck and I wish you the best,
