44th Tennessee Kentucky Rifle Show

Friday-Saturday April 22-23, 2022
Jubilee Banquet Facility 

6700 Jubilee Center Way Knoxville, TN 37912  

"Wayne Elliott Special Award"

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. 
Collector items permitted to be displayed are limited to flintlock or percussion-cap muzzleloading longrifles and pistols made in America prior to 1898 and contemporary hand-crafted muzzleloading longrifles and pistols. Related accouterments (horns, bags, knives, etc.) are also welcomed. Cartridge weapons and gunpowder are not permitted. No alcohol or smoking in the showroom. All table holders and invited guests assent to these requirements as a part of their admission to the meeting. 
This is a collectors’ meeting and is not promoted to the general public. We welcome all those who are interested in the preservation of the American long rifle 
Kentucky Rifles, pistols and related accouterments only.
No cartridge weapons permitted.

The format will be the same as in 2021 with the full use of both rooms. This allows for about 90 tables.


6:00pm on Friday night is the BBQ Dinner at the show venue. Reservations for the dinner must be made in advance. There are a limited number of dinners. Lunch is available both days. Contact Randal Pierce for more information.

Tables will be spaced to assist and promote social distancing. Currently there are no COVID-19 regulations in TN.

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
