Just reading this letter to the end will teach you several important things about this opportunity and most importantly, it reveals the time sensitive reason to enroll now.

Over 100 Million Firearms have been sold in just the last 7 years! – Who will do the Gunsmithing? Why not you?!

Do you realize how many of those guns are going to need professional maintenance, repairs, customizing and more?!  At a bare minimum 10% of them will need work at any given time.  That means an additional 10 million guns need your help right now, and that doesn’t even count the hundreds of millions of older guns that were sold prior to the last 7 years. So the opportunity is vast to say the least. Who will be the Gunsmith in your area that people will turn to and admire? Who is going to fix your guns?  Who will be the Gunsmith who is able to confidently maintain, repair, and customize firearms of all types. Why not YOU?

Once you get started, People will appreciate knowing you, and give out your name to their best friends. Just like they would the best contractor, electrician, or plumber they know, or even their favorite doctor. Your name will be on their lips. You will be respected and admired.

Think of how you will feel when you are both a Gunsmith and business owner. By choosing a field that is surely going to continue to grow, Gunsmithing, you will be able to protect and control your future.  If you haven’t yet watched the Introductory Video that explains what is covered in the American Gunsmithing Institute’s Professional Gunsmithing Courses, and even gives you a tour of an actual Gunsmithing Shop, go to: and watch it now. The hour or so it takes to watch this video is a small investment of time that will be an extremely valuable investment in your future. You will also learn some actual Gunsmithing from it. So go watch it now.

I want to invite you to learn real Gunsmithing by participating in the rare opportunity to “Sit at the feet and Learn” from the Grand Master of Gunsmithing, Bob Dunlap step by step through video instruction.

My name is Gene Kelly, and I am personally a first-generation student of Bob’s, having learned directly from him almost 40 years ago and now I am helping others learn his secret methods.

bob dunlap
Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap

As a result of learning Bob’s exclusive method of D, F, & R Gunsmithing, I am now a recognized Master Gunsmith, a Licensed FFL dealer, a Class 2 Firearms Manufacturer, an Expert Witness regarding Firearms in Federal Court, as well as being the founder and president of the American Gunsmithing Institute.


I am inviting you to learn exactly as I did, directly from the Master, Bob Dunlap, through the American Gunsmithing Institute’s, study-at-home, Certified Professional Gunsmithing Course on video!


Many of Bob’s students have gone on to become Master Gunsmiths, and some of them are now even instructors at the American Gunsmithing Institute.  But only because we first learned Bob’s exclusive Firearms Design, Function, and Repair System (D,F,&R). That is what enables us to repair or customize any firearm.

Even ones that we have never seen before. Through AGI’s Certified Professional Gunsmithing course, you will be able to become a Professional Gunsmith because you will learn the same systematic method of Gunsmithing that we did, directly from Master Bob Dunlap himself instructing you step-by-step on video.  This is what you will experience: The ONLY Home Study, Design, Function, and Repair (D, F,&R) course taught by true Master Gunsmiths in an easy to follow system, using Video Instruction and taught step-by-step, with special teaching tools such as cutaway firearms that let you see inside.  In this course we will teach you the major and minor Firearm Systems, how they work and the rules they need to follow.

Such as; Locking systems, Firing pin designs, Sear, Hammer and Striker systems, with Positive, Negative and Neutral engagement, Feeding systems, including box magazine, tubular feeding, belts and more. Critical extractor specifications and what every extractor must do, along with ejector systems, disconnectors, safeties, stocks, triggers, sights, bolts and slides and so very much more in the 168 Hours of professional video training contained in just the Professional Level 1 Gunsmithing Course.


As an upgrade the Master Gunsmithing Course covers all of the same training and adds to it; Machining, Welding, Bluing, Heat Treating, Custom Pistol and Rifle Building, Business Success Training and much more.  The Master Gunsmithing Course is our most popular level.


That may seem like a lot of time to invest, but it is so interesting to gun guys like you and me, that it goes by quickly. This course provides a higher level of training than any other Gunsmithing Course or School in the country and over the last 30 years, AGI has trained more working Professional Gunsmiths than any other school.


The other Gunsmithing schools still teach the same way they did 50+ years ago where you have to travel to go to their school. Old, inefficient, SLOW, and expensive. Students of those schools and even the Other Online Schools Do Not learn our exclusive Systematic Firearms, Design, Function, and Repair, method, so they end up just being “Parts Swappers.” Changing out parts and hoping to get it right, but not knowing why, if they finally do get it to work. I find that to be scary. Don’t you? You can’t truly repair something if you don’t understand step by step how everything internally functions and interacts together. This course is more detailed than any other Gunsmithing school, brick and mortar OR Online!

When you study AGI’s Design, Function, and Repair Gunsmithing Course you will know How and Why you are doing a repair and be confident that you have solved the problem.

You might ask, can I really learn Professional Gunsmithing from Training Videos? Yes, you can. Thousands of our students have learned using this exclusive method over the last 30 years and we Guarantee it. Our students consistently state that the training is better than a classroom because we don’t waste any time, you can see extreme close ups, the teaching is clear and continuous, and you can review the material anytime you want.

We just got this Google Review this last week:

I have really enjoyed the classes so far. I learned enough in the first few classes, that I am working full time at nothing but Gunsmithing and building and selling my own rifles. - Quentin Snodgrass, Snodgrass Armament LLC

In addition, our students have access to continuing education from our Professional Gunsmithing Staff, at optional, bonus weeklong hands-on classes and through ongoing educational webinars. Plus, you get support from Master Gunsmiths by phone & email. (Shown in the picture to the left is an Example of a Cutaway Firearm we use as a teaching tool.)

After completing this course, You will be a real Firearms Expert, an AGI Certified Professional Gunsmith, able to maintain, repair and customize all types of firearms. You will have the ability to make money with your new knowledge, Part-Time, Full-Time, or as a Retirement Income.

We have already trained thousands of Professional Gunsmiths over the last 30 years, but the need continues to grow. We keep hundreds of student success testimonial letters on file along with videos from actual students. To watch and hear a few of them tell their success stories visit:

Earn the Respect that other AGI Certified Gunsmiths enjoy.

I want to include you in the 2023 Class of AGI Certified Professional Gunsmiths. You can join the students who have achieved personal freedom, self-reliance, along with the ability to make extra income doing what they love, while getting to soak in the admiration and envy of their friends.


We helped those students become Certified Gunsmiths by rapidly teaching them Firearms Design, Function, and Repair through our video based, study-at-home program and also provided them with the insider secrets to being successful as a Professional Gunsmith. I want to do that for you too!


After just a few hours studying our program, these students are now able to maintain, repair and customize guns and have provided themselves with the ability to make money part-time, full-time, or as a retirement income on demand, by offering those same services with total confidence to others. Why shouldn’t this be you?


Is it possible that we haven’t yet given you enough information to address your concerns, and questions about being a Gunsmith?! We aren’t afraid to talk honestly with you, and you should not be hesitant to ask us questions and discuss with us your vision of what you would like to be able to accomplish as a Gunsmith. Give us a call and speak to a Student Advisor, they will help you get the information you need to make a wise decision. You just have to give us a call. It is even toll free at 1-800-797-0867.


I feel that it is important to clearly communicate to you just How much Fun and how very satisfying it is to fix a firearm, knowing that you did it right on the first try.


The compliments and flattery you’ll receive from your customers and friends is pretty satisfying too. It’s certainly a lot better than most people’s “day jobs” where they have to show up every day for the same old grind and no one ever really says “Thank you”. Now is such an exciting time to be a Gunsmith.

It’s time to join the fun and make money!!! This is the Land of Freedom, there is nothing more American than being a Gunsmith!!


With the knowledge provided in this course and the  Federal Firearms License, (FFL) application package that we provide, you can be Gunsmithing in just weeks or months.


If you follow our system, you will get your Federal Firearms License (FFL) in as little as 90 days. (as long as you are not a Felon or a person prohibited from owning firearms) It only costs $200 for a 3-year license, and as a Gunsmith the record-keeping is pretty easy and hassle-free! What other part-time or full-time business can you start for just a few thousand dollars and be almost immediately charging $40 to $80 or more per hour for your time?

(According to one of our past students, they are averaging $138 an hour in their shop right now!!)

All with a low cost to get started and with the ability to even work from home.  You can almost immediately get started making easy money doing professional cleaning and repairs, installing sights, scopes, slings and recoil pads.  Along with providing basic and advanced customizing, accurizing, refinishing and repairs.


Can you think of a more fun and relaxing way of earning an extra $1,000, $2,000, $3,000 or more per month part-time than working on Guns? It is totally doable and if you are thinking of retiring this is a great way to extend your nest egg while staying as busy as you want to be, yet still being able to schedule work on your own time and terms.  Here is a question for you;

Could you use an additional $240,000 over the next 10 years?


Well, if you just worked part-time at Gunsmithing and only generated an extra $2,000 a month for the next ten years, that would be $240,000. (12 months x $2,000 x 10 years = $240,000) Your total investment in the entire Master Gunsmithing Course is less than $12,000!!

If you don’t get started now, how will you ever break free and enjoy the life you deserve?!

Are you afraid of the Liberals in Congress taking away your rights? They have tried before and have failed.

But even if they did get some legislation through, as a Certified Gunsmith you will always have access to guns, parts and ammo with people wanting you to repair their firearms. So NOW is the Time to Stick it to the Anti-gunners. What better way to do THAT, then by ensuring that you will always have the knowledge to keep your guns, along with friends and customers firearms in top-notch condition with the ability to repair them?
