Industry news rownells has teamed with Trinidad State Junior College (TSJC) in Trinidad, Colo., to develop a third-year gunsmithing program called the Brownells Trinidad American Firearms Technology Institute. The program is designed to reflect realworld employment in a working gun-shop environment. “Students come out of the gunsmithing schools with the knowledge and ability to build and repair guns; however, they have not had enough time to experience running a business,” said Pete Brownell, Brownells president. “Whether they want to start their own gunsmithing shop or to work for someone else, they need to know how a business operates.” The program will teach students about retail sales, inventory control, counter sales, customer service, dealing with vendors and B Brownells Sponsors Gunsmithing Institute management functions. Brownells helps supply the real-world element. The company provided $250,000 in funding for facilities remodeling, plus the inventory and equipment for the new retail-repair facility. “Our intent is to open and operate a real-life gun shop with third-year students who will provide top-quality gun repair, parts and services for gun owners, collectors and hunting and shooting sports enthusiasts. We will offer retail, repair, bluing, reloading and even some light manufacturing,” said instructor Thomas “Speedy” Gonzales.
