We’ve added many graduate websites under Master Gunsmithing Program > Careers. On that page scroll down to #2 PA Gunsmith School® Graduate Websites. Prospective students, review the list of services on many sites to get an idea of the skill sets offered in the real world that students learn at PGS; many sites list prices, too.

Under Admissions > Veterans Benefits, see our proud designation for the 2022-23 school year as a Gold Ranking Military Friendly® School by the Military Friendly® Company. This means PGS is recognized as a post-secondary institution committed to serving the veteran community in a meaningful and comprehensive manner.
