Want to get into gunmaking?
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.
