Interview with Gunsmithing Student Jeremy Chan

I am often asked by readers how they can become gunsmiths, but, never having gone down that path, I am as clueless as they are. My friend Albert Rasch has published an interview with Jeremy Chan, a gunsmithing student at the Trinidad State Junior College Gunsmithing Program. The interview is well worth reading.

Albert writes

I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to a young man who is now studying to become a gunsmith at Trinidad State Junior College in Colorado. Jeremy Chan is now immersed in the famous gunsmithing program started by none other than PO Ackley famous writer, gunsmith, and wildcatter. I think we will be seeing some great things from him in the future, and I want you, my fellow sportsmen, shooters, tinkerers, and students to be the first to get to know him!

  • TFB,

    Thanks for the shout out! The kid is doing some really advanced work, he seems to have a real knack for the craft! I’m personally going to keep tabs on him and see his progression. I think we are going to see some great work come from his hands!
