    What are the better schools for gunsmithing? I am new to this board, but have been around guns and machine shops for many years and I am about ready to put the two together. Any information will be much appreciated.

    Check out Montgomery Community College in Troy NC. I graduated there 5 years ago and although they have done away with the engraveing school the gunsmithing school is still there. They also have a well recognized taxidermy school if anyone is interested in both sides of the issue.

    I am a recent graduate of Piedmont Community College in Roxboro, NC. I highly recommend this school. The program is self-paced and the instructors are excellent.

    In my opinion, Trinidad State Jr. College in Trinidad, CO still has the best gunsmithing school in the nation. I'm sure others have opinions on this, but I know more quality gunsmiths that have come out of there than anywhere else. http://www.tsjc.cccoes.edu/gunsmithing/

    Where else can you buy a barreled action at the school bookstore?
