gunsmithing schools(Update) I am a home gunsmith and I found buying and watching some of the AGI DVDs a great way to advance my gunsmithing knowledge on a very specific topic. Gunsmithing schools tend to cover all topics at a very high level which is too high to really be an expert and many of the topics I find myself disinterested in. I recently purchased and watched the entire series of DVDs to become a certified 1911 gunsmith. While I didn’t really need a certification as I only do home gunsmithing projects, I appreciate the sense of accomplishment and the added confidence that I can now fully service 1911 style firearms.
