It's good to hear that you are interested in gunsmithing. I found that gunsmiths are reluctant to take on apprentices because many of them go on to become competition. Good luck in your quest.

I can recommend CST. I went through the program in 2005-2006 and enjoyed it very much. The cirriculum is 80% hands on and 20% classroom. They have a very large machine shop and the school is an actual working gunsmith shop where customers can bring in guns to be worked on.

I have a friend who does IT work for gun related industry in the New England area. I'll make a post to see if he can get me some info to pass on to you.

I too wish I could get into gunsmithing. Currently I am training to become a Radiologist technician, maybe once Im done with that I can move out to Colorado (Im sick of living on the east coast, too many laws about long range rifle shooting) and attend the school you mentioned, perhaps in night classes or part time somehow. Anyways I wish you the best of luck.
