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 Pala, 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 Pala, 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 Pala, 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 Pala, CA is growing.
Gunsmithing Programs Offered Across the Country
Prior to AGI’s founding, gunsmithing programs were only offered in Pala, 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 Pala, 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.

Pala, CA, Pala is a small, mostly Native American, community located in the Pala Indian Reservation, located within San Diego County, California near Fallbrook. For centuries a traditional gathering place of native peoples, it was selected in the early 19th century by Spanish Franciscan missionaries as the site of a mission to serve the Native Americans.
The community is east of Carlsbad in the San Diego-Carlsbad metro area. In the National Geographic Names Database, it is officially catalogued as feature number 1661174. The community is in ZIP Code 92059, and inside area code 760.
The community name may be derived from the Native American Cupeño or Luiseño language term pal, meaning "water." Another possible origin of the name is the Spanish word pala, which means "shovel."
The community is in the Pacific time zone. Pala is at an altitude of 404 feet, located at latitude 33°21′55″N 117°04′36″W (33.365N, longitude 117.075W).
After United States annexation of California following its victory in the Mexican-American War, Pala became known for its mineral resources, including gold and tourmaline. Numerous gem mines were established in 1890s, of which more than twenty are listed in the Mindat database. Gem mines in the Pala District still produce tourmaline, with the pink variety as the regional specialty.
China's Dowager Empress Cixi of Qing Dynasty highly prized the pink tourmaline mined in Pala. Under her influence, China's demand for this gem created a boom in the California tourmaline industry after 1902, particularly at the Himalaya mine. Demand fell off about 1911, declining after the Empress died in 1908.
Pala was the site where morganite beryl was first discovered. In 1902 it was found to have the first commercially significant deposit of kunzite, named after George F. Kunz, the godfather of gemology.
"I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within." General Douglas MacArthur

Engendered by the Pala Band of Mission Indians tradition and culture of preserving the environment, in July 2008 Pala Casino Spa & Resort initiated Planet Pala, a green program committed to environmental preservation, the efficient use of energy and resources and the improvement of life in the community. An initiative that started as an internal effort to recycle and save now touches humankind on an international stage.
Recognizing the world’s significant environmental challenges, Planet Pala involves hotel and casino guests, team members, management and vendors as environmental stewards in the implementation of sustainable, earth-friendly operational programs, including the conservation of water and energy, the use of eco-friendly products, recycling and community outreach. The entire program is funded by revenue generated from the sale of recycled materials.
Also in 2008, the Pala Band of Mission Indians opened the Pala Transfer Station and Recycling Center on the reservation. In addition to handling all recycling for the hotel/casino, the Transfer Station serves the public. Since the opening of the Transfer Station and the initiation of the Planet Pala program, an average of 309 tons of waste per year is recycled and diverted from land fills.
By expanding existing green processes and implementing easier, low-cost opportunities, Planet Pala was able to initiate a green culture throughout the entire hotel/casino very quickly.
