Learn sitting by the side of the master… a Day at the Bench with Bob Dunlap
What if you could spend a day at the bench looking over a master gunsmith’s shoulder as he explains, not only what he is doing, but also what he is thinking as he works through a series of real repairs.
After learning complete design, function and repair as part of the Professional Level 2 Course, you will have the rare opportunity to get inside the mind of Bob Dunlap and understand exactly how he thinks through a gunsmithing problem. This training will take your professionalism to the next level. You will spend the equivalent of an entire day looking over Bob’s shoulder as he works on everything from a Luger Pistol to an Italian copy of a Winchester ‘73.
He talks to you about his thought process, how to diagnose problems and ways to make the fastest repairs. This is very “hands-on” additional training. Bob also shares with you his philosophy on setting up a shop and how to move efficiently. You, too, will have the ability to rapidly analyze problems and apply the most direct solutions. This is 4-1/2 hours of additional instruction packed with exclusive insider information.
