All American Firearms (and Training) is located in Columbus GA at 4863 C Milgen Rd. The company was started in 2008 in my back yard with $100 and two partners, and is now a full-time business focused on mechanical repairs, customization and firearms refinishing work (blueing, Duracoat and Cerakote). I started the company as a part-time endeavor, but it has since grown into a full-time commitment. The reason I got interested in doing this is that I am a sponsored shooter with the Army Reserve Marksmanship team. When I joined the team, I needed some competition-quality guns but could not find any gunsmiths who had anything less than a 2-year wait time for a high-quality match-grade gun. Obviously I could not wait two years, so I decided that I would have to quickly educate myself on how to accurize guns and build my own guns. It turned out to be something I enjoyed doing, and it was relatively up my alley since I am an Engineer by education. While all of this was going on, I happened to be teaching firearms safety classes, and people often brought broken guns to class. I saw a market for repair services and bought more tools. Things just kind of snowballed from that point, and here we are.
