Want to get into gun­mak­ing?

Shooting Gazette - - Shoot Briefing -

Put your­selves out there! Get­ting into the trade is not the eas­i­est. There are only a small amount of ap­pren­tices taken on each year. I started work­ing at my lo­cal ground aged 14 at week­ends and school hol­i­days. At 18 I ap­proached a lo­cal gun­smith and was of­fered a po­si­tion as a ap­pren­tice. Ap­proach as many com­pa­nies as pos­si­ble. Even if they do not have any­thing avail­able right then they may have in the fu­ture.

If you don’t find a po­si­tion straight away keep try­ing, re­mem­ber the trade needs ap­pren­tices.
