American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI), producers of the most authoritative instructional gunsmithing DVD courses, continue to expand certified course offerings to include new firearms, new instruction and new opportunities for anyone interested in learning about guns.

The AGI Certified Professional Gunsmith course provides future gunsmiths with all the current information and how-to’s to set up and start a successful, certified gunsmithing business for a small investment in dollars and time. The AGI Professional Gunsmith course has provided thousands of students with the tools and skills to make money part-time or open their own business.

Unlike most trade schools, the AGI program allows you to complete the program in as little as three months, studying from home, through DVD instruction representing the latest technology and packed with current information on the design, function and repair of firearms. With over 108 hours of DVD instruction in pistols and revolvers, rifles, shotguns and .22’s, you will also receive instruction on what tools to purchase, how to set up a shop and run a successful business. Students also receive written and practical application testing during the program and when completed receive their certification ready to hang on the wall and announce they are open for business.

The Professional Gunsmith course is an excellent opportunity for anyone recently retired or out of work, who are passionate about firearms and are looking to become certified, start their own business or as an additional service provided by current firearms dealers.

The American Gunsmithing Institute is the Nation’s premier Gunsmithing School and has been providing students with the highest level of certified hands-on instruction in the comfort of their own home since its founding in 1981. AGI provides Instruction by internationally known and respected Gunsmiths such as; Gene Kelly, AGI President; Robert Dunlap, AGI’s Senior Instructor; Darrell Holland, custom Riflesmith; Gene Shuey, world-class custom Pistolsmith;  Ken Brooks, Repair Gunsmith Instructor and T.R. Graham, an authority and gunsmith on GLOCKs and other handguns. These Instructors help every AGI gunsmith course to provide students with the latest information and techniques on firearms repair, building and rebuilding.
