AGI American Gunsmithing Institute In Montgomery, AL 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 Montgomery, AL 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 Montgomery, AL 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 Montgomery, AL is growing.
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Montgomery, AL 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 Montgomery, AL 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.

Docked beside the uniquely built Riverwalk Amphitheater, this elegant 19th Century riverboat is center stage of Montgomery's entertainment district. The Harriott II offers dinner, dancing, and live entertainment, making this a perfect night out for the family.
The recreation department of Montgomery was created on March 1, 1948, through the efforts of several Montgomery citizens, including Earl James. Mr. James used the recreation plank in his campaign for the City Commission, was elected and immediately followed through with his plans to create the department. T.A. Beiser was named Superintendent of the new department.
The only recreational facilities were two lighted softball fields and a pavilion at Hamner Hall Park, along with a grandstand and a baseball diamond that were located at Bruce Field, which is where O'Connor Tennis Center sits today. The O'Connor Tennis Center is an eleven-court facility, which opened to the public in September of 1971.
During its initial year of operation, square and folk dancing, arts and crafts, talent and puppet shows along with play days and softball dominated the first summer of activities and sports.
In April of 1949, the Parks and Recreation departments were merged into one unit. The board members were: Mrs. James Fitts Hill, Chairman; Junie J. Pierce, Vice-Chairman; Harold McGlynn, Secretary-Treasurer; Charles Covey and Florian Strassburger.
The Golden Age (senior citizens) program was initiated into the department by Miss Bebe Smith. In 1958, five large community centers were opened to the public under supervision from the staff of the department. These centers feature gymnasiums, club rooms, dressing rooms and foyers with football, softball and baseball fields adjoining these buildings. This phase of the department has grown into one of the finest in the South.
Montgomery citizens have benefitted from the facilities of the Parks and Recreation department for years, but the road to a successful program has not always been easy. Among the issues were the court battles concerning segregation ordinances. In the mid-50's several suits were brought up to erase the segregation rule in parks and playgrounds, but of to no avail. On January 1, 1959 the City Commission of Montgomery voted to close all parks and playgrounds to avoid the integration of races. With this order by the commission, 13 parks were closed, including Hamner Hall Community Center, the first of its kind to be built by the department.
