We feel privileged that you have taken the time to explore PGS and the career of gunsmithing. Take your time and explore the many pages and pictures offered here to give you a sense of what the career is all about.

Exciting things are happening today in gunsmithing. Years ago only the firearm factories offered gunsmithing services to the public. This notion is comparable to buying a car from a dealer, then having to drive to the manufacturer to have it serviced.

Today, gunsmithing services are performed by sole proprietors, small LLC’s, sporting goods retailers and big box stores. Emerging all over the country are indoor shooting ranges and each one of these facilities needs a gunsmith to maintain their rental guns and upgrading customer purchases. They are also finding that shooters will spend money on gunsmithing services and on custom firearms!

Opportunities for the field are growing as large retailers are recognizing the potential revenue-producing effect gunsmithing has on their business. This leads to many job opportunities available as a gunsmith.
