"After 25 years in the military I wanted to do something that I thought was meaningful to me so I chose the MGS gunsmithing course. I am currently working on starting my own gunsmithing business, currently waiting on my FFL. The Online Student Center is easy to navigate and is great for someone who has done very little online course work. My overall experience with MGS was outstanding, the staff was very fast to respond to any of my questions. I have and will continue to recommend MGS to fellow gun lovers."
