At the end of this year I am going to gunsmithing school is Susanville Ca. Does anyone know how much a gunsmith makes? Almost everyone In my family thinks I'm crazy going into something before I know if I can make a living off it. I keep telling them I don't care how much I make because I am going to be doing something that I enjoy. They all hate guns anyway. They are all still mad that I joined the Marine Corps instead of getting a 4 year degree like they all did. I just want to know what I could make so they will quit asking me.
