Bob Dunlap

AGI Senior Instructor, Master Gunsmith Robert "Bob" Dunlap is recognized nationally as the top instructor in his field. Before he retired, Bob often lectured at other gunsmithing schools and is an expert witness in firearms court cases.

Ken Brooks

A graduate of and former instructor at the renowned gunsmithing program at Lassen College, Ken works full time with Bob Dunlap at their shop in Coquille Oregon. Ken also hosts online bi-weekly webcast technical classes for our gunsmithing students. When Bob retires from gunsmithing, he plans on turning his entire operation over to Ken because he has developed into such a great design, function and repair gunsmith.
