One of my Sgt's graduated that course too. I don't consider that a legit certification. You don't even get any hands on work. Just reading and taking a test or two doesn't make someone a gunsmith.

If you can't do a trigger job on anything, flip burgers.....
can and have all the above. Even flipping bugers left handed. JUST WANT TO BE LEGAL AT WHAT I LOVE TO DO AN GET OUT OF THE RAT RACE

Not at all. I was just saying that it's not a course that will teach someone gunsmithing. Maybe the basic knowledge of guns but gunsmithing requires a lot of hands-on training. How long did it take you to finish the P/F Course?

I know the feeling.
The Government regs, have stopped me from, starting my gun shop.
To go by the regs, I need about $ 200,000.00
Just to start.

So much, for helping a small business get started.

JMHO

I have built quite a few guns from Mauser actions and Winchester actions......and a few others.

I do my own smithing and do not do work for others.....however I occasionally jewel bolts for others.

Here's a few of the guns I have built lately.
A M-70 fwt I rebarreled to .25-06:


A Mark X in .30-06 restocked to Mannlicher


A 9.3 X 62 Mauser on a VZ-24


A .404 Jeffery on a Montana 1999 action


A .35 Whelen on a Mauser VZ-24


and quite a few more.
