    Anyone who has taken the course, do you have an opinion on the instructors? I'm going to take the course and am trying to decide whether there is an appreciable difference among the various instructors. Thanks

    He was really good.

    I've had Ramsey the 1st time & Goldsmith??? the 2nd time. Both were good. Always looking forward to going back to Smyrna.

    Thank you Gentlemen for your helpful and quick reponses!

    Follow-up question: Were any of you novices regarding the subject matter, or did you have prior experience with armory/smithing? I am quite the novice....

    I was a novice.
    (Still am, I'm not and have no desire to be a gunsmith. I took the class because I thought it would be interesting.)

    I had Jim Greene and a guy that is no longer with Glock. I have seen Jim Greene teach another class where I wasn't a student but was providing the meal.

    If Jim lets you out for a break at 0957 and tells you that it is a 10 minute break, he will start back teaching at 1007 exactly.

    I've been interested in this also but didn't know what experience level is required. What is considered a novice? Should you be able to completely disassemble a Glock and put it back together? I just know how to maintain my gun (field strip, clean, oil).

    And do you need to bring your own Glock?

    No...as a matter of fact they tell you not to bring your own weapon. They will have pistols for you. When I took it. we worked on gen 3 glock 22s. Also i was a complete novice and the instructor will show you step by step on what to do.

    You should take t from Glock, it cost $150.00 and it is one day When you do this you can purchase parts etc for your weapon from them.

    As a civilian, you must be a member of GSSF to take the Armorers course at GLOCK.

    I'm planning on taking this course within the next few months.

    Seems like everyone here has had a favorable experience during this course. :)

    Do they give the students any reference material/special tools/etc to take home?
