I am cureous...what would you recomend would be the best way to learn & become a gunsmith who is capable of building every part of a rifle & assembling a custome peice of art? I'm interested in gunsmithing. It facinates me. But, until now, I haven't had the time to pursue a hobby that I could eventually turn into a lifestyle. I'm 41 & my last child is only a few years away from heading off to college. It may sound silly, but I would love to have the know how & equipment to fix & build anything...from a custom bolt to a tack driving long range hunting system. Any suggestions? I live in S. Louisiana & there are no specific gunsmithing schools near by.
