New Students

A new student to the gunsmith school begins fabricating small gunsmithing tools using a hacksaw and file.

Be Prepared for your First Day of School!!

Remember, school starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m. Be on time for your first day! Our doors will open at 7:50 every day. You will find parking around the building (do not park in the fire lane!), or you may park in the gravel parking lot across the street from the school. You will enter the building through the south door in the middle – look for other students lining up. Inform the instructor at the door that you are a new student and they will direct you to the correct classroom for orientation.

Our school does not have a cafeteria. Bring a sack lunch to eat at school on your first day or be prepared to eat fast food during the lunch break. Lunch is scheduled from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Important things to bring for orientation are:

  • Pen to write with
  • Paper to take any notes
  • Know your local address – you will be asked for it!
  • Have a valid accessible email address for Canvas – you will be asked for it!
  • Any tools that you have bought on your own in lieu of purchasing from CST
  • Your NRA Member Number
  • $10 check made out to CST Student Rifle and Pistol Club

Remember our dress code: long pants, close toed shoes and a shirt with sleeves. Please do not bring large fixed blade hunting knives or any concealed carry guns.
