American Gunsmithing Institute Brings Training Courses In Enterprise, AL Into Your Home
During its twenty year tenure, AGI realized that something was missing. While there were various gunsmiths and gun enthusiasts in Enterprise, AL and throughout the U.S., they were missing an outlet to come together, share ideas, stories and most importantly, have some fun together! So AGI created The Gun Club of America (GCA). It stands upon four pillars: education, fun, savings and fellowship.
AGI Teaches Basic and Advanced Firearms Maintenance, Customizing, and Gunsmithing Repair for hobbyist and Professional. Study at home and get Certified as a Gunsmith.
AGI American Gunsmithing Institute In Enterprise, AL Has Over Two Decades Of Experience
Two decades ago, American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI) Founder and President Gene Kelly saw an increased demand for gunsmiths in the firearms industry in Enterprise, AL and realized that there was a growing need to train new gunsmiths on a faster and more efficient basis.
Kelly made it a goal to preserve the art of gunsmithing for future generations and to provide a way for gun enthusiasts in Enterprise, AL to pursue their hobbies from the comfort of their own homes through AGI’s course load.
With over 330 million firearms in this country, at any given time 10 to 20 percent of those are in some need of cleaning, repair or customizing. After WWII, a large crop of new gunsmiths appeared, but now they are retiring or passing away and demand for new, young blood in the gunsmith world in Enterprise, AL is growing
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Enterprise, AL at a couple of campus based schools and most people could not afford to attend them so the number of gunsmiths continued to decline.
This gave Kelly the idea to found AGI. Using Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap’s teaching methodology, combined with the video techniques developed by AGI, Kelly was able to create a unique teaching method that allowed students to learn at home in Enterprise, AL at their own pace. And thus, AGI was born. Since its inception in 1993, AGI has gone on to use this same method to teach people welding, machining, locksmithing and other trade skills.

The best options for your self-defense weapon
For many self-defense situations, the small sporting rifles in light to medium calibers have been proven over the years to be a solid option in this role.
They say that if you know you’re going to shoot during a a threatening event, you only use your sidearm until you can get to your rifle! That sounds all well and good for military personnel or law enforcement / law enforcement, yet the problem is you never know when a a threatening event can suddenly appear.
For the average Enterprise, AL civilian, the next best thing you can do is carry a concealed pistol with you at all times when in public so that you’re always in a position to defend yourself and/or a family member should a sudden, a threatening event occur.
Although the mainstream media in this country rarely reports self preservation stories where a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy, many people would be quite shocked to find out just how often that actually occurs in this country! A search of conservative news reporting societies and stories posted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and NRA websites reflect just how common it is that someone who is legally carry a concealed pistol defended their life or the life of another from an evil individual. If only the truth was reported accurately, the entire view of guns by the liberal left in this country might even have a chance of changing public opinion.
For anyone in Enterprise, AL considering carry a concealed pistol legally in public, whether it be open carry or concealed carry, I highly recommend that you speak to educated, a pro and licensed instructor, along with doing your own research on the make, model, and caliber that is best suited for your physical stature and your self preservation needs. Luckily for the consumer, there is a very large number of options that will be suited for every possible self preservation need you may have.
Another consideration with the a gun itself is the caliber of which you wish to carry, unlike in the past where caliber size was critical, it’s no longer as important because of the major advancements in calibers construction, design, and stopping performance.
The most popular caliber by far is the 9 mm, and as such, a lot of development has gone into this particular caliber, leading to some major advancements in just the last five years. The cost of this caliber is relatively low, availability is widespread, and the physical recoil is extremely manageable in virtually all makes and models of sidearms. Most importantly, it has the necessary stopping power to end the attack by an aggressor.
One thing to always remember is that regardless of the sidearm or the calibers, the most important thing is bullet placement! You can fire 15 rounds at the bad guy, but if you only hit them once in the shoulder, there’s a high probability you are not going to stop their attack. Whereas one round properly placed in center mass, a heart shot, or a headshot, the fight is over immediately.
Make sure to do your research, talk to the Enterprise, AL local pros that are in the know and are licensed, ask a lot of questions, and before you make your final decision, I would highly suggest that you go to a reputable range with a instructor and try out the different makes and models of sidearms to find that one that fits your hand perfectly. With just a little bit of effort, you can find the perfect sidearm for your self preservation needs!
