A dirty gun is one of the most common problems affecting both the gun and shooter’s performance. And unfortunately, many gun owners fail to clean their weapon as frequently or as thoroughly as they should – often due to a lack of education about firearm cleaning. That’s where Keystone Shooting Center comes in.

Our professional gun cleaning instruction course is designed to help gun owners throughout Pittsburgh learn the best and safest ways to clean their firearm. By the end of our class, you’ll have a cleaner gun and increased confidence in your abilities to handle this valuable weapon.

About Our Gun Cleaning Instruction Course

Proper gun cleaning can be tricky to get the hang of, and not all firearms clean the same. If you’ve recently bought a new firearm, you don’t yet feel comfortable cleaning your gun or you have trouble with its disassembly or reassembly, our professional gun cleaning course is for you.

In Gun Cleaning Essentials, we will focus on how to easily breakdown your firearm and how to select and use various tools, accessories, solvents and oils to achieve a clean and well-functioning firearm. While many people have different preferences when it comes to their gun’s cleaning, you’ll learn some of the most straightforward techniques for maintaining its cleanliness. With easy-to-follow tips that ensure your safety throughout the gun-cleaning process, our classes are designed for gun users of any age or skill level.

You are encouraged to bring one unloaded firearm with you along with your owner’s manual if you have it. Come wearing clothing that you won’t mind getting dirty. We’ll then provide you with all the tips, tools and safety equipment you need to disassemble, clean and reassemble your firearm. You will leave the class with practical knowledge and a clean handgun!

Why Take Professional Gun Cleaning Classes?

Keystone Shooting Center offers some of the best professional gun cleaning and sonic cleaning services in the Pittsburgh area. However, we still believe everyone should have the basic skills and know-how to clean their firearms on their own if need be. Take a gun cleaning instruction course to:

  • Avoid damaging your weapon: You likely know that cleaning is an essential part of gun ownership. But you might not know that improper cleaning can result in increased rust or total weapon damage. Learning proper cleaning methods in person from a firearms expert will help you keep your gun in top condition.
  • Familiarize yourself with your firearm: By repeatedly disassembling and reassembling your gun for cleaning, you’ll develop a more intimate knowledge of how your particular model functions. This knowledge is especially useful if your gun ever stops working. By becoming familiar with its parts during cleaning, you’ll have a better idea of what’s wrong and how to fix it.
  • Spot early signs of wear: When you clean your own gun regularly, you can take the time to inspect every piece for wear and tear. As you learn what the pieces are supposed to look like, you can more easily determine when a part is going bad and when to replace it to avoid firearm damage.
  • Prevent malfunctions: Improper or infrequent cleaning can lead to several types of malfunctions, causing your gun to fail when you need it most. If the gun is dirty, a round could get stuck in the barrel, or the cartridge could fail to eject – which could even cause the weapon to explode. Instead, being able to clean your firearm as soon as you know it’s dirty could save you from these dangerous accidents.

Great place to shoot your own gun or try a new one from their selection of rentable firearms(including fully automatic weapons). They have a very nice range and a couple rentable party rooms. Huge selection of pistols, rifles, knives and attachments and accessories for all. I will definately be returning with my friends. This was one of the first ranges in the area I chose to go to and I seems like this may be the only one I will be going to in the future. It doesn’t get much better than this.
