Take an intro class at the local college. I started out with mechanical engineering and taking 1 welding class a semester just to learn. Then 3 years later I realized that engineering wasn't gonna be my career choice so I switched to the business college and still continued my welding classes.

After 6 years of being a professional student the reality set in that I needed a career, not a job. So my career got kick started, and I had to drop out of college. Luckily 4 years later I got a small window of opportunity to work whatever schedule I wanted so I took summer classes, worked all night and finished my degree, in welding. Only took 10 years.

Welding is a great skill to have (especially TIG welding) and can make some good $$$.

back to the firearms:

Supressed Walther P22
