American Gunsmithing Institute Brings Training Courses In Jamul, CA Into Your Home
During its twenty year tenure, AGI realized that something was missing. While there were various gunsmiths and gun enthusiasts in Jamul, CA and throughout the U.S., they were missing an outlet to come together, share ideas, stories and most importantly, have some fun together! So AGI created The Gun Club of America (GCA). It stands upon four pillars: education, fun, savings and fellowship.
AGI Teaches Basic and Advanced Firearms Maintenance, Customizing, and Gunsmithing Repair for hobbyist and Professional. Study at home and get Certified as a Gunsmith.
AGI American Gunsmithing Institute In Jamul, CA Has Over Two Decades Of Experience
Two decades ago, American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI) Founder and President Gene Kelly saw an increased demand for gunsmiths in the firearms industry in Jamul, CA and realized that there was a growing need to train new gunsmiths on a faster and more efficient basis.
Kelly made it a goal to preserve the art of gunsmithing for future generations and to provide a way for gun enthusiasts in Jamul, CA to pursue their hobbies from the comfort of their own homes through AGI’s course load.
With over 330 million firearms in this country, at any given time 10 to 20 percent of those are in some need of cleaning, repair or customizing. After WWII, a large crop of new gunsmiths appeared, but now they are retiring or passing away and demand for new, young blood in the gunsmith world in Jamul, CA is growing.
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Jamul, 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 Jamul, 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.

Jamul, CA, In 1999, the Tipai Band of Kumeyaay Indians, with 64 members living on 6 acres (24,000 m2) of sovereign land in the Jamul area designated the "Jamul Indian Village," announced their intent to develop a new hotel and casino. The original plan, which required the US government to annex 81 acres (330,000 m2) of surrounding land to complete the project, met with strong opposition from local residents. After the annexation effort was denied, the casino plan was revised to fit the 6-acre (24,000 m2) reservation grounds. Despite continuing opposition from townspeople, a ceremonial groundbreaking took place on 10 December 2005.
The $200 million project is financed by Lakes Entertainment of Minnesota. The casino's original concept was to be developed according to the State of California's gambling compact. Proponents emphasize increased revenue for the state and the tribe, as well as 2000 new jobs for all members of the community, while opponents fear strain on its police and fire services, a major impact on the local water supply, and argue that a 15-story building will permanently change the town's character. The chief concern is the increased traffic on the main road through the town, Highway 94. The proposed casino location is such that all the traffic to and from would likely pass through the middle of the town.
On Feb 7, 2003, the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs held a meeting to discuss the environmental impact report produced by the Jamul Indian Tribe in support of the casino project. Hundreds of Jamul residents showed up to express almost unanimous opposition to the casino.
On Sept 13, 2006, casino organizers held a meeting with the townspeople on site to address their concerns. The casino plan was further clarified, with an artist's conception of the proposed six story casino and 12-story hotel complex on display. A court reporter was on hand to receive comments for or against the proposal, and of the 40 who did so, three were in favor. Most of the negative comments were in regard to increased traffic on Highway 94, which narrows to a two-lane road at the proposed site of casino.
Revolver: A handgun which has a set of revolving chambers set into a single cylinder to align with the barrel to shoot cartridges (or lead balls in the case of a black powder revolver).
Jamul, CA , East County business organization has folded in the bitter wake of a botched beer festival.
The Rancho San Diego-Jamul Chamber of Commerce announced the closure in a letter emailed to its members late Monday, less than three weeks after it left festival vendors and ticketholders in the lurch by canceling the Qualcomm Stadium event at the last minute.
Valerie Harrison, who had been the chamber CEO and president, said on Tuesday that the collapse of the festival was a key factor in the decision, along with the weak economy.
She said leaders of the defunct group still hope to make good on $22,000 to $23,000 in debts from the event, including money raised through booth deposits and promotional expenses.
“No one feels worse about this than I do,” she said. “The bottom line is I wish I could pay everybody back.”
The 4-year-old organization emptied its Avocado Boulevard office in Rancho San Diego late last week, after a formal eviction notice was taped to the door.
Several people who had made deposits or racked up other expenses before the festival said they were still waiting for refunds.
Mike Shess, executive editor of the West Coaster, a publication that tracks San Diego’s craft beer industry, said he had struck a promotional deal with the chamber tied to the event.
But he said efforts to reach Valerie Harrison or her husband, Jeffrey Harrison, who had been a chamber board member, have so far proven fruitless.
Artist Pablo Iniguez said he’s out $500. He had reserved a festival booth.
“I’m hoping for that money, but what do I do?” he said. “Do I take the organization to small claims court?”
Former chamber leaders also may end up owing money to the county. The organization in recent years had received $9,600 in community enhancement grants through the office of Supervisor Dianne Jacob.
Following the festival fiasco, Jacob’s office scotched plans for an additional $3,000 grant and asked county staff to investigate the previous allocations. The supervisor said late Tuesday that part of it has not been fully accounted for.
“I will urge the county to take all steps necessary, including legal action, to account for or recover the (money),” she wrote in an email. “Chamber officials need to face the music and provide a more thorough explanation for the organization’s closure, the (festival) cancellation and missing monies.”
The business booster group was founded in 2007 and had about 120 for-profit and nonprofit members, according to Valerie Harrison.
