Welcome!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Trinidad State Junior College Summer NRA Program. Whether you are new to Trinidad State or a seasoned veteran of our Summer Program, we are sure you will find courses to meet your needs.

In 2017 the Gunsmithing Program will celebrate two milestones – the 70th anniversary of the Gunsmithing Program and the 40th anniversary of our partnership with the National Rifle Association for the Summer NRA Gunsmithing Program. A reunion and celebration along with the second annual Art of the Gun art show are scheduled for the weekend of June 9-11, 2017. If you have firearms or firearms related items that you would like to display in the Art of the Gun show, please let me know. Additional information about the celebration and show will be provided as it becomes available.

If you are taking Gunsmithing-related courses for credit in the summer program, you may be eligible for an NRA Foundation scholarship. If you are taking them as non-credit, you may qualify for a scholarship from the American Firearms & Shooting Foundation. Scholarships do not apply to the NRA Firearms Safety Instructor courses. Both scholarships are based on financial need. Information and application forms are available in Appendix B. Scholarship applications are due by April 28, 2017.

Be sure to check out the workshops available for your spouse through the Southern Rockies Heritage School at Trinidad State. In addition, we will hold additional continuing education classes not related to Gunsmithing or the Heritage School. New classes are continually added so be sure to check back more than once.

Thank you for considering Trinidad State for your Gunsmithing and Firearms Safety education. We look forward to seeing you!
