How do you become a gunsmith?
So with retirement in sight, I've been thinking of doing part time gunsmithing. Based on some stuff I read on the internet, seems like apprenticing is the best way to go. Unfortunately, I don't see that route working for me since this is something I want to do on MY schedule during retirement (i.e. don't want a boss). Are there formal courses?
Hey forgemonkey, how did you get started? I definitely do admire your knowledge of the 1911's inner workings.
