With Over 200,000 Firearms Industry Related Jobs in America and Rising, as well as Record Setting Firearms Sales in 2012, the Need for More Gunsmiths has Become Prevalent
Despite our country’s difficult economic times and high unemployment rates nationally, the firearms industry has continued to grow and has created over 37,130 new jobs over the past two years. The firearms industry as a whole has created 220,130 jobs as of 2012. Additionally, due to the current politically unstable climate, 2012 proved to be a record setting year for gun sales. With more jobs opening up in the firearms industry and more firearms becoming available in the market that will need to be serviced, the American Gunsmithing Institute, producers of the most authoritative instructional Gunsmithing DVD courses, and also the Nation’s Premier Gunsmithing School, is seeing the demand for more educated gunsmiths in the workplace. Due to this, AGI has announced a new goal of creating 1,000 new gunsmiths in 2013 through their gunsmithing DVD courses.
Now in its 20th year, AGI has educated thousands of certified Gunsmiths through their innovative at-home educational system that allows the student to learn at their own pace. AGI employs the latest technology and cutaway firearms to give their students a look inside and a clear understanding of exactly how a certain gun functions. Once a student completes the Certified Professional Gunsmithing Course, he or she will possess the most authoritative information available on the design, function, maintenance and repair of firearms. The AGI courses are like having the country’s best gunsmithing instructors available when one needs them.
“AGI’s training by using DVDs with the ability to study at my own pace, to pause, rewind and review again, to repeat any subject quickly, and to have all the information on hand for future review, has completely sold me on AGI’s teaching methods,” commented Charles Aycock, current AGI student.
Daniel Myers, another AGI student, added “I was originally trained by three Master Gunsmiths and Firearms Designers and thought that my training was fairly complete. I was truly surprised by what I further learned through AGI from Master Gunsmith Robert (Bob) Dunlap. His teaching methods are direct and fully explained.”
In 2012, the firearms and ammunition industry was responsible for as much as $33.36 billion in total economic activity in the country. Now is the time to learn how to become a Certified Professional Gunsmith. For more information on how to get started, please visit http://www.americangunsmithinginstitute.org/.
