During its twenty year tenure, AGI realized that something was missing.

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 Opelika , 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 Opelika , 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 Opelika , 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 Opelika , AL is growing
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Opelika , 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 Opelika , 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.

Choosing The Handgun Perfect For You For Self Defense And Concealed Carry
Do you know all the Handgun regulations? You need to! Do you know where you can purchase a quality Handgun, or find a qualified firearms instructor that has the right credentials and city or state licensing? We at US Precision Defense do, we have all the information that you will need.
“God made man, Sam Colt made men equal, but John Browning keeps men free.” Yes, this is a variant of the original quote, but yet, it does ring true!
There is an incredibly wide variety of revolvers and handguns specifically designed for lawful self-defense. A significant portion, if not nearly all of the models for virtually every weapon manufacturer that makes a roscoe, are either specially designed for concealed firearm carry or can be used for both concealed firearm carry or open carry. Everything from a .25 auto handgun up to a .44 magnum revolver can be used for and or adapted to a lawful self-defense role as a concealed firearm carry weapon during a deadly run-in.
There is a weapon for every citizen’s needs in size, ammo, configuration, extended control, and ability to carry covered. Before making a final determination, it is suggested that you talk to several different permit trainers, and take the opportunity to discharge every weapon you are considering in order to find the one that best fits your hand, your savvy as a shooter, and your confrontation.
Typically, an automatic handgun requires more education for all possible discharging scenarios than that of a revolver. This is a result of automatic handguns having a longer learning curve, usually due to its functionality of the movement of the slide, sight picture, proper hand placement, and the activation and deactivation of any safeties.
Many prefer the use of a revolver as a lawful self-defense roscoe due to its ease of use and high reliability, they virtually never have any ammunition jamming, Also, due to their double action feature, there is significantly less risk of an accidental discharge.
There is a never-ending debate regarding the number of ammunition that a lawful self-defense roscoe holds, and many revolver enthusiasts will refer to this quote; “It is not the number of rounds you fire, it is the accuracy of the first shot fired”
