Ron Power to Headline Brownells 5th Annual Gunsmith Career Fair

Des Moines, Iowa – -( Ron Power, renowned gunsmith and owner of Grand Masters L.L.C., will be the keynote speaker at the Brownells 5th Annual Gunsmith Career Fair, to be held at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown in Des Moines, Iowa, April 15-16, 2011.

Power will talk about “Responsible, Professsional Gunsmith Opportunities.”

The industry-exclusive Gunsmith Career Fair is expected to draw more than 200 attendees and 40 employers.

Company CEO Frank Brownell said, “Ron is one of the true innovators and legends in the gunsmithing business. Ron started his shop in 1959, and really started to roll around 1970. He helped found the American Pistolsmiths Guild in the early 1980s and is still turning out new gunsmith products today.”

Power’s first product was the “end-shake bearing” which, when installed, removes end-shake from revolver cylinders. Power’s first competition revolver was called the “Grand Master,” and it was made in the days when competitive shooters in bullseye were still using revolvers for centerfire matches.

Pete Brownell, company president told us, “The Gunsmith Career Fair is growing into a must-attend for individuals interested in gunsmithing and improving their careers. That’s why Ron Power will be a great keynote speaker – he’s certainly recognized for his design innovations, but at the same time he also ran Power Custom and now Grand Masters L.L.C. as successful businesses.”

Career and business-development seminars will once again be a huge feature of the event, with even more opportunities this year for hands-on learning from guild members and industry professionals.

Attendees will be able to interview with top firearm companies and government agencies that are ready to hire. Soon-to-graduate gunsmithing students, recent graduates, working gunsmiths, and gun-shop owners are all invited to attend, as well as anyone looking to start a career in the gunsmithing profession.
