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

Tehachapi, CA, Tehachapi is located outside of Southern California’s congested highly populated areas and outside of the drier hotter deserts and valleys surrounding it. Tehachapi is like a breath of fresh air. Our higher elevation and mountain locale epitomizes outdoor living at its best. People here, whether resident or visitor relish their time spent outside enjoying the scenic beauty and all the recreational opportunities, extreme sports and wildlife the area has to offer.
But Tehachapi’s unique environment also means it’s located outside the mainstream and conventions of suburbia. It’s original. More unconventional attitude attracts people with fresh ideas and energy that manifest themselves in the arts, culture, traditions, technology and commercial innovations, and strong community spirit.
It’s about higher elevation. How the higher elevation is our competitive differentiator because we have clean air, four seasons, alternative energy, outdoor adventure, great agritourism… all because of our higher elevation.

In 2012, the City of Tehachapi solidified a new partnership with the Tehachapi Mountain Rodeo Association (TMRA) for the long-term improvement and operation of the Tehachapi Event Center and Rodeo Grounds. At that time, the City Council committed up to $500,000 in new improvements at the facility to be spent over the course of several years.
In year one, the City purchased grandstands to nearly double the seating capacity of the Rodeo Arena and made accessibility improvements to the spectator areas. TMRA also took their end of the partnership seriously by constructing new VIP seating areas, installing new bucking shoots and more to continue the enhancement of the arena. Future improvements are also being planned and implemented currently for the rodeo arena portion of the event center.
Planned enhancements to the facility are not limited to the arena however. In an effort to make this an outstanding multi-use facility, the City and TMRA began work with the City’s contract engineering and architecture firm to create a concept master plan for the entire site.
Over the course of several weeks and multiple design meetings, representatives from both groups discussed the types of uses appropriate for the facility, where these uses should be located, the visual style of the facility and more. The resulting concept is one that the committee is confident will allow for a large and diverse variety of uses that will help TMRA, the City, the airport and the community succeed.
The state will necessarily abuse the coercive tools we allow it to have. The overwhelming majority of private individuals, however, will use guns responsibly, and in many cases defensively. Violent private criminals can never be stopped with gun control, which only empowers the state and predators, both private and governmental, while disarming the victims.

Fact: Since police started keeping statistics, we now know that assault weapons are/were used in an underwhelming 0.026 of 1% of crimes in New Jersey. This means that thierofficers are more likely to confront an escaped tiger from the local zoo than to confront an assault rifle in the hands of a drug-crazed killer on the streets.
