HISTORY & PURPOSE OF THIS SHOW
The Tennessee Kentucky Rifle Show was started 43 years ago by the late Robin Hale, an authority on antique Tennessee rifles. After Robin’s death, the show was continued by others and, in recent years, has been sponsored by a non-profit corporation organized for that purpose. The focus of the show continues to be antique longrifles and pistols primarily from the South. In recent years, due to the great interest by contemporary makers in learning more about, and following the old traditions, we have opened the show to contemporary makers and their work. However, the primary focus of the show continues to be antiques.

Note: The photo is one of the cabins at Cades Cove. We have stopped by there many times over the years on the way to the Tennessee Kentucky Rifle Show. This is a show with the focus on the antiques. It is an excellent opportunity to study the old as well as see the work of new makers. JR
