I doubt it ...... I know that I've never met one.
The main reason why is, that everyone wants you to be the low cost provider, with on-time service and yet offer the highest quality work on the planet.
Cheaper, Faster, Better ...... and anything less, is less.
How many gunsmiths do you actually know? I don't know a lot but I know quite a few that are happy and content. Sometimes its not always about the money. I understand a lot of people don't want to pay more bit thats people in general.
But to answer your question... I'm guessing its always best to start at attending a school. Be it a community college or a private one.
