NAPA, CA (April 2013) –  The American Gunsmithing Institute, producers of the most authoritative instructional gunsmithing DVD courses, introduces a new Technical Manual & Armorer’s Course on the Ruger® LCP / LC9 and Kel-Tec P-3AT Pistols hosted by Senior Instructor and Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap and Master Gunsmith Ken Brooks.

Dunlap opens with some history of the evolution of the extremely popular Ruger pocket pistols, the .380 LCP, its bigger and younger brother the 9mm LC9, as well as the LCP’s uncanny similarity to the also popular Kel-Tec P-3AT .380.

This course is ideal for those who are looking for practical instruction on how to get a Ruger® or Kel-Tec pocket pistol completely apart, clean, troubleshoot, make common repairs and get the gun back together and operating properly without any “leftover” parts.
