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.

PGS graduates are prepared for entry-level employment as a Gunsmith and other related careers. See the Objectives and Overview section for more details.

In the fourth and final semester of the Master Gunsmithing Program is the Business Practice Course. Student instruction covers employment as an employee and as an independent business owner. While this is not a comprehensive collegiate business course, it makes the student aware of what is necessary to get a job and how to set up a small business.

PGS has a Placement Assistance Department that partners with students in their job search, however PGS cannot guarantee employment.

Our Placement Assistance Department encourages employers to partner with us because of the excellent talent of PGS graduates. If you are an employer, call 412.766.1812 or email to schedule on-site interviews, describe and post job leads, or just talk to a staff member about hiring an excellent candidate.
