Our History

Founded in 2000, Frontier Firearms grew from a tiny one-room shop to one of the Knoxville area's largest independent gun stores and shooting centers.  We strive to provide a wholesome, family-oriented, “no bull” environment.  Ask a question at Frontier, and you won't be treated like a dunce.  We welcome gun enthusiasts of all levels of expertise, from first-time gun owners to champion shooters or vets.  

Our Vision (our old store)

Our vision is to operate the friendliest, most excellent, and safest indoor shooting range and gun store around.  My Great Grand Father Best was a retailer whose furniture store survived the Great Depression.  He taught my Grandfather Williams, who taught my  Dad the importance of customer service based on the time-honored, old-fashioned ideas of Value, Service, and Integrity.   Today we live and die by these principles treating every customer in a kind and considerate manner.  We desire to make customers friends for life.
