Lets Get Started
I'm ready to rock, what do I do first?
We are excited for you! The first step is to familiarize yourself with laws in the jurisdiction you reside. These laws vary widely from locale to locale and may include serialization requirements, limits on parts, and specific regulations on ownership of unfinished frames and receivers. We do not sell any parts, components, or frames/receivers, so please check with manufacturers on items available in your area.
I live in a free State. What is next?
Great! Next is to decide which learning path best fits your needs.
I prefer to watch videos
- Go to the Store and Video section Here
I prefer a mix of imagery, video and written explanations
- Go to the Self Paced section Here
I prefer live instructor lead classes
✅ Must be at least 21 years old

How much does it cost?
We do not charge a tuition fee. As far as we know, we are the only firearm learning platform that does not charge tuition. You pay only for what you want. Choose from video downloads, self-paced courses, virtual lessons, special ticketed events, or private instruction.
So I don't have to pay a membership or tuition to become a student?
That is correct!
Do I have to enroll and fill out an application to take classes?
If you plan on taking any live instructor lead classes you will have to be a registered active enrolled student. It is also REQUIRED you successfully pass the Safety Course Here:
Once you pass the safety course, your profile will be assigned a safety badge which will give you access to book live virtual classes.
I'm trying to access a course page, but it's saying denied?
You are not an enrolled student with the correct badge access or you haven't completed the
Gun Builder Safety Course *required*

The class I want to take is in session, but it says full:
There is enormous demand for some courses. We try to make every effort to add more classes as the session fill. Emails are sent out when new dates are added. Active students receive priority notice. Enrollment is on a first come first serve basis. Do not wait to register.

2. Take a self-paced course
3. Visit the student support page and request a private class
