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

Tulare, CA Location is one of Tulare’s best assets. The city is situated in the Central San Joaquin Valley along Highway 99, 45 miles south of Fresno and 60 miles north of Bakersfield. Our mid-state location benefits businesses needing same-day access to key California markets as well as residents seeking recreational opportunities in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east and the spectacular California coastline to the west.
The town of Tulare was founded in 1872 by the Southern Pacific Railroad to serve as its San Joaquin Valley headquarters. Transportation was the driving force behind Tulare’s establishment. The early years were difficult. The town burned down and was rebuilt three times in its first 14 years.
The city was incorporated in 1888. Residents faced hardship again in 1891 when Southern Pacific relocated its valley headquarters to Bakersfield.
When the railroad left, residents turned to agriculture for their livelihood, but faced the challenge of providing enough water to supply the new industry. To bring water to the area, residents founded the Tulare Irrigation District and issued $500,000 in bonds to construct an extensive canal system carrying water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The town paid the bonds off early and in 1903 celebrated with a bond-burning celebration.
Agriculture remains the lifeblood of the local economy and Tulare sits in the heart of some of the most productive farmland in the world. The strategic location makes Tulare very attractive to food processors and distributors because of the central location and abundant supply of locally grown products.
Annually, three to six times as many victimssuccessfully defendthemselves with handguns as criminals misuse handguns (thus handguns do up to six times more good than harm)

The climate of this agricultural community is varied, with cool and damp winters with a mean temperature of 45 degrees, but very hot dry summers, with a mean temperatures of 95 to 110 degrees. The mean average rainfall was 10 inches prior to the drought that began in 2012 and remains ongoing as of May 2016.
Average rainfall now hovers at about 2 inches annually. Tulare consistently suffers from year round air pollution and air quality that is among the worst in the United States because of both geographic conditions (hemmed in valley, weak winds) and the prevalence of diesel fuel exhaust from farming and truck traffic on Highway 99. Farming also exacerbates this because it kicks up tremendous amounts of dust, especially in the late summer and autumn months
Basic to the debates on gun control is the fact that most violent crime is committed by repeat offenders. Dealing with recidivism is key to solving violence. 71% of gunshot victims had previous arrest records. 64% had been convicted of a crime. 62,63 Each had an average of 11 prior arrests. 63% of victims have criminal histories and 73% of the time they know their assailant (twice as often as victims without criminal histories). Most gun violence is between criminals. This should be the public policy focus.
