Thank you for visiting our site on this most interesting form of visual electronic communication. I feel privileged that you have taken the time to explore via the Internet your interest in PGS and Gunsmithing. Many exciting things have happened in the career field of Gunsmithing since our site was developed in 1996. It has been my hope that someone in the Sporting Goods retail field would recognize the need to service the firearms that they sell.

For too many years only the factories offered service to the public on their firearms. I would compare this to buying a car from a dealer then having to drive to Detroit to have it serviced. Gander Mountain has pioneered the concept of placing Gunsmiths in each of their stores along with sales associates who are familiar with the firearms they sell. PGS graduates staff many of Gander Mountain stores that are expanding throughout the Northeast and Midwestern United States.

Pennsylvania Gunsmith School is a private post-secondary educational institution and is located in Avalon, a suburb of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The school is similar in nature to colleges, but unlike colleges, the training is conducted in a laboratory or shop type setting and is predominately hands-on, bench work.

Since 80% of people are visual learners, instructors physically demonstrate concepts, techniques and skills and students repeat or complete assigned tasks. Instructors follow-up for understanding, comprehension and quality of workmanship. Based on the philosophy that 80% of people are visual learners and the intense complexity of firearms, PGS does not offer on-line, distance education or correspondence courses. The core school philosophy is that to properly learn safe, competent Gunsmithing operations, it is imperative to be under the direct supervision of a trained Gunsmithing instructor.

PGS' sole program of study is GUNSMITHING. There are not any liberal arts courses necessary that would take time away from learning valuable Gunsmithing skills.
