    Any idea of the cost or requirements to attend a Glock Armorer School? Is this a week long course?

    TIA

    That's true, but you are now a "Certified Glock Armorer"

    Well, you get to order parts, cheaply, from Glock/Smyrna.

    I have never ordered parts from smyrna so you guys may be right. Have to order a lot of parts to pay for the class though.

    The Glock Secret Decoder is worth the price of admission.;)

    I have no regrets in becomming certified, or re-certifying twice.:cool:

    I plan to re-certify again in 2006.

    So a professional gunsmith / armorer can't obtain certification?

    Seems like it's less about training and more of a sales gimmick.

    That's about it. Hobbyists do it for fun. Professionals do it for the duckets.

    Can someone point me to a professional "armorer" that does that for a living. I would love to see it.

    Not a gunsmith but a armorer.

    Would be awful tuff making a living changing parts that a common guy that can use google could do himself.

    Well that are a lot of them. Of course they wear uniforms and maintain the entire inventory of stuff that their department uses.... And there are some in the military too.... but again, they aren't doing at home in the basement.
