PCC’s Gunsmithing program also presents a variety of selections during the short semester. This unique program is designed to provide students with the required skills needed to refurbish metal and wood as applicable to firearms, to diagnose malfunctions for repair, and to accomplish more complex custom gunsmithing tasks.

Course work includes manufacturing of tools used in the gunsmithing trade, restoration of firearms, stock making, barrel work, repair work, and custom work. The student will accomplish this work by performing actual gunsmithing tasks in a “hands-on” environment.

Students also have the opportunity to prepare for Summer and Fall classes by getting a head start on developmental classes. In fact, developmental math and integrated reading and English classes are offered at a wide range of times on both the Person and Caswell County campuses. These classes provide an opportunity to develop proficiencies that will prepare students for future success.
