Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country

Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Alamo, CA at a couple of campus based schools and most people could not afford to attend them so the number of gunsmiths continued to decline.

This gave Kelly the idea to found AGI. Using Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap’s teaching methodology, combined with the video techniques developed by AGI, Kelly was able to create a unique teaching method that allowed students to learn at home in Alamo, CA at their own pace. And thus, AGI was born. Since its inception in 1993, AGI has gone on to use this same method to teach people welding, machining, locksmithing and other trade skills.

Hemme Station Park

Coming soon…. A new park for Alamo residents and travelers along the Iron Horse Trail to open later this summer!

Park Features

This new park, located at Hemme Avenue and Danville Boulevard and accessible from the Iron Horse Trail, will provide a respite spot for travelers on the Iron Horse Trail and for the local community. It includes restrooms, drinking fountains and water station, bike racks, benches, shade structure with picnic tables, trash and recycling cans, “Mutt Mitt” station, decomposed granite walking path, a central turf area, and associated landscaping. A train themed tot lot play area and interpretive elements with historical and park environment information are also included. The park will be fenced with semi-solid fencing adjacent to the roadways and Iron Horse Trail, and solid fencing adjacent private property. The facilities will be accessible, per American with Disabilities Act guidelines. Access for park users will be via a paved connector to the Iron Horse Trail.


This property was identified as a future park site by the Alamo community as early as 2008. The County acquired the property in 2014. A public meeting held in September 2014, a Community Survey, and subsequent meetings of the Alamo Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) through 2014 and 2015, gathered public input and led to the completion of a conceptual design by the County’s landscape architect consultant (Stantec).

Environmental testing has been conducted to ensure that the park soils are safe for park users. With the exception of two locations along Danville Boulevard, the soils at the park site were found to contain no lead, arsenic, pesticides or hydrocarbons above background and/or residential screening levels (the most stringent requirements).

The two exceptions had surficial soils containing slightly elevated lead levels; these soils are being removed and replaced with clean soil, in accordance with a Remedial Workplan prepared by the County’s environmental consultant, ENGEO. Elevated lead levels are not unusual close to the roadway due to the use of leaded gas in the past and the fact that Danville Boulevard used to be the main route thru the San Ramon Valley. 

There are several gun ranges in and near the city, many offer both NRA certified Range Safety Officers and Instructors. There are also five differnt stores that sell sporting goods including firearms.
