South Carolina Gunsmithing Technical Schools:
Gunsmithing combines the skill of an expert craftsman and a mechanic to make and repair guns. Training in this field comes from the military, apprenticeships, or from a vocational degree. Classes in a gunsmithing degree will cover a wide range of topics designed to equip students for immediate entry into the workforce. Every gunsmith needs to be licensed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. The requirements and forms for getting a license are on the ATF website, along with explanations of current firearm industry laws.
Gunsmiths generally clean and repair firearms, and also make modifications to them per client requests for custom work. If a weapon needs to be restored to working condition or a scope needs to be mounted, then it is a gunsmith that does it. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not track gunsmiths specifically, but the state employs 43 people per 1000 in Installation, Maintenance, and Repair occupations as a whole. The average wage in these occupations is $39,920 per year, according to BLS
. Because the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not report specifically on gunsmiths, the job outlook is hard to determine. There are gun shops all over the state, but most gunsmiths are self-employed, with a few working for the military, specialized sporting or hunting stores, or ammunition and weapons manufacturers.
