"To learn gunsmithing I drove to Tishomingo Oklahoma (Murrray State) every summer for 8 years. ‎I have also taken classes in North Carolina and Oregon. 95% of my instruction has come from Mr. Bob Dunlap, the former head of the gunsmithing program at Lassen community college in California. Other instructors include Jack Rowe, Ron Power, Dean Arnold, and more. I have been blessed with excellent instruction and always do my best to live up to their quality." - Kevin Neblock

Coursework & Certifications

Master 1911 builder class

In April I had the privilege ‎of being accepted into and attending a Master 1911 builder class taught by Bob Marvel.  Bob is known for building the ultimate in accurate and reliable 1911s. With match ammo, his pistols are well known for 1.25" groups at 100 yards!! To get the opportunity to learn from someone of Bob's level is very rare and I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity.  As an added blessing, Bob has invited me to his shop for additional one on one 1911 training. I hope to have completed this by the end of August.  - Kevin Neblock
