    Are there any gun manufacturers either based in Texas or that have branches in Texas?

    For example, Hk's US branch in Virginia...


    I'm thinking I may send a resume to a few different gun manufacturers and see if they want to participate in my college's co-op program and hire me. :big grin:
    I figure it'd be worth a shot...:dunno:

    Actually... it doesn't need to be in Texas, that would just be a plus.

    All I need is a place that does engineering at their facilities...

    there are always engineers at production facilities.

    there is much more engineering involved in producing a product than just product engineering.

    What year and engineering field are you in?

    I know there are always engineers at production facilities, but I don't know if all those places are production facilities though.

    I don't think the Hk in VA does any production... so I'm not sure if Glock does all their manufacturing Austria or what... :dunno:

    I'm a senior studying Mechanical Engineering with a pretty good background in manufacturing. My school has an integrated co-op program built into the curriculum.

    According to a website I found, all Glock does at the Smyrna, GA facility is assemble and test-fire them.
