KALISPELL -

It's a first of it's kind class at Flathead Valley Community College - teaching firearm technology. The program is finishing up its first year which was funded by a grant from the Montana Department of Labor.

Class coordinator Fred Zeglin says industry leaders held several meetings with the school to discuss the growing labor needs in the Flathead Valley.

"The manufactures in the valley said they really didn't need gunsmiths. What they really need were machinists who had a good understanding of firearms," he said. "So, they can lend some assistance in manufacturing process and design process; help troubleshoot something is they got a design that's not quite right."

Zeglin says this class is for people who like to work with their hands and are problem solvers.
