American Gunsmithing Institute Brings Training Courses In Florence, AL Into Your Home
During its twenty year tenure, AGI realized that something was missing. While there were various gunsmiths and gun enthusiasts in Florence, 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 Florence, 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 Florence, 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 Florence, 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 Florence, AL is growing
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Florence, 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 Florence, 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.
Typically when the conversation about defend comes up, most think it’s about an individual who either carries openly or is carrying a concealed firearm, a revolver.
Consider the history within our country of civil unrest, anarchy, and in recent history, what one could consider being even insurrection resulting in the damage and destruction of buildings and property, and other violent acts including rioting and looting.
Taking this into consideration, defend is not only inclusive of just your person, it also encompasses your family’s safety in your vehicle, in your home, and in your business.
To be prepared for all possible eventualities that could happen in Florence, AL, we suggest that you consider not only a revolver, but also long rifled guns such as ~shotgun2~ or AR15 style rifled guns, which are both excellent home and business protection firearms.
It is a known fact within historical records that during the time of rioting and looting, that just the mere presence of a long gun, rifled gun, and/or a ~shotgun2~, the aggressors immediately retreat. In the very unlikely event that the aggressors should continue their advance, you would be in a position of superior firepower and be able to defend your home and/or property.
Look up historical footage of the riots in Los Angeles when the store owners took to the rooftops with rifled guns and ~shotgun2~s. After open fire only a few bullets, the word got out. While the rest of the city was under siege, these particular store owners and businesses were untouched. A perfect example of why we have the 2nd amendment. The government cannot always protect you and in such cases, you have to take on the defend of yourself, your family, your home, and your business on your own!
Defend is not just about yourself, it’s about everyone and everything that makes up your family, your home, and your livelihood. Only you, as an individual, are responsible for all that you have to be protected.
