The Sonoran Desert Institute traces its roots back to 1921 when the School of Gunsmithing was opened in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. The school’s program of gunsmith instruction has been continually updated and revised to ensure that it is current with our changing technology and practices.
This ongoing development and innovation has been managed by the family of the founder of the Institute. When the Sonoran Desert Institute was opened in 2000, the Gunsmithing program was a major component of the Institute’s course offerings.
Today, with the significant interest in the Associate of Science in Firearms Technology Degree program, Gunsmithing remains a strong focus of SDI’s curricula.
