A Sincere Thank You

For choosing Coal Creek Armory for your shooting and training needs. 

Thousands of customers have visited us each year since 2002 and our humble beginnings in Oak Ridge. In 2004 we the purchased our current building, the area's only 16,000 sq. ft. facility with an indoor range and repair annex, located in Knoxville, to better serve the public with nothing but the best firearms, firearm repairs, restoration and manufacturing as well as world class firearm instruction. Our success was not overnight, it was hard work, work that paid off with loyal customers who have also come to know us as their friends.

In September of 2011 we opened our second location in Kingston, TN. Our newest location is not as large as the main branch, but it offers everything you have come to expect from the Coal Creek Armory family. Honest prices, unbeatable and constantly changing inventory.  Professional gunsmithing from an actual gunsmith and, yes, one of the best firing ranges around, complete with unmatched world class training.

We appreciate everyone's patronage and look forward to serving you for many, many year to come.
