Can I get one-on-one help and support for a specific project?
We don’t provide private support but you can pose your questions in our forums and receive amazing feedback and advice any time from within our community, both from fellow members and our instructors are in the community every day!
Can I upgrade to an annual membership later?
You sure can! You can upgrade to annual membership any time with a couple of clicks from your Subscriptions page. Our system will automatically take into account the time left on your current subscription, so you'll never be double charged.
I have a gunsmithing business already that is doing well, what can GCA do for me?
Assuming you want to keep growing your business then GCA can help you with continuous education, industry discounts, tips, and techniques from Master Gunsmiths, keeping you informed about what's new in the industry as well as supporting you with working towards your future goals. This is certainly not a "beginner only" community - far from it! We've helped gunsmiths grow to 7 figures, so there's plenty of expertise on offer that you're sure to benefit from in your continued growth.
I’m not 100% sure what the Academy is or if it’s right for me, do you offer a trial so I can test it out?
We’re not currently offering a trial, however, you can get a good feel for exactly what the membership is and how much it offers with this behind-the-scenes video: https://gunsmithingclubofamerica.com/sneak-peek-video/ - If you still have questions after watching, just let us know.
I’m still at square one with my Gunsmithing, is GCA right for me?
Absolutely - GCA covers every stage of gunsmithing - from the very start where you just want to learn about cleaning to more intensive repairs and restorations. In fact, now is the perfect time for you to join GCA; as not only do we have training that will take you through every step, but you'll also be able to get support and advice from within the community too, to help you through your journey.
Is all of the content available immediately or is it time-released (drip fed)?
You get access to everything already inside GCA as soon as you join! There are over 195 Disassembly/Reassembly courses as well as Over the Gunsmith Shoulder project videos, as well as access to our GCA Live webinars. Past issues of GunTech video and print magazine are available 24/7 online. No waiting for content to be released to you, just jump in and start making use of the training straight away. We update and add new material monthly - so your content library will continue growing.
What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?
Obviously, we'd love it if all of our members stuck around forever - but we've worked with Gunsmiths for long enough to know that that's never going to happen! So, if you do decide to cancel obviously we'll be very sad, but you'll be able to do so with just a few clicks from within your account page.
Once canceled you’ll retain access to the site for any remaining time paid for, after which you’ll lose access to all of the content, community, and live sessions. However, you can choose the option to suspend your membership, and then, when you decide to come back, your content will be there waiting for you!
What if I don’t enjoy the Membership Academy?
We know you will LOVE GCA, however, if for whatever reason you're not 100% satisfied in any way you can suspend or cancel your membership. We want you to succeed, and know that if you become a member of GCA and really put your heart and soul into it... you will see amazing results!
What kind of Gunsmith is GCA suitable for?
We focus on helping hobbyists, part-time, and full-time gunsmiths. Our online training courses and our collaborative community are both geared to assist any level of gunsmiths, from those who are wondering if this is a career for them and those who have a thriving business and need continuous education, it's all here. Our content is relevant to anyone interested in the repair, restoration, and modification of firearms.
Why should I become a member today instead of waiting?
It's time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you really want to be the best Gunsmith you can be and build a successful, profitable business then you need somewhere to get answers to all of your questions - especially the ones you don’t know you have yet. You need support, community, and most of all... accountability!
The Gunsmithing Club of America is that place. If you really want to make a difference, the time is now.
