American Gunsmithing Institute Brings Training Courses In Montrose, CA Into Your Home
During its twenty year tenure, AGI realized that something was missing. While there were various gunsmiths and gun enthusiasts in Montrose, 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 Montrose, 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 Montrose, 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 Montrose, 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 Montrose, CA is growing.
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Montrose, 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 Montrose, 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.

Montrose, CA, For decades, there have been stories told about the origins of Montrose that have turned out to be false. When Robert Newcombe was researching his photo history book on Montrose, he discovered that he had been duped by these stories along with everyone else.
“Developers Holmes and Walton” built Montrose. Reality: Holmes sold his share of the company to Walton five years before Montrose opened. Robert Walton teamed up with an investor named J. Frank Walters to buy and grade the land.
Montrose was named after Montrose, Pennsylvania. Reality: Walton and Walters held a contest in late 1912 to name their new community. Eight people submitted the name Montrose, which was picked the winner by a panel of judges, one of whom was Lt. Governor Wallace, who was building a Scottish style castle nearby. From the eight submitters, one person was arbitrarily selected the winner. He happened to be from Pennsylvania (150 miles away from Montrose, PA), but Walton and Walters never publicly said why they chose Montrose. Since Wallace was of Scottish descent, it’s most likely that the community was named after Montrose, Scotland. But no one knows for certain.
Montrose was laid out in the pattern of a “mountain rose.” Reality: While the streets look remarkably like a flower, especially from the air, the truth is the streets were planned and laid out in that pattern months before the name was selected. None of Walton’s marketing material mentioned a floral pattern, but they do say that the “circular pattern of boulevards give it a park-like effect.” It’s certainly possible that the pattern of the streets inspired people to submit the name Montrose; and it’s possible that the judges made the same connection. (Related to this, Montrose means “pink mountain” in French, not “mountain rose.” In Scottish, it’s simply a family name.)

Montrose, CA, The area was originally part of the homelands of the Tongva people. It became part of Rancho La Cañada, a Mexican land grant given in 1843 by Governor Manuel Micheltorena to a Mexican schoolteacher from Pueblo de Los Ángeles, Ygnacio Coronel (1795–1862).
La Crescenta does not mean "the crescent," which in Spanish would be la creciente. From his home, early settler Benjamin B. Briggs "could see three crescent-shaped formations, which suggested to him the artificial name," accepted by the U.S. Post Office in 1888. Montrose was chosen "as the result of a contest for the subdivision established in 1913 on part of the La Crescenta development
