About Us

After 2 years of planning and a lot of gun grease a unique business has opened in Seymour.

“Rocky Top Armory has been a dream of mine for many years. My love of the shooting sports and our 2nd amendment right that every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms has been the driving factor behind starting Rocky Top Armory,” owner, long time Seymour resident, Chris Clepper says.

At Rocky Top Armory patrons can buy, sale, or trade hand guns, long guns, shotguns and air guns. They stock bulk ammo, specialty ammo, reloading supplies, optics, holsters, slings, and cleaning supplies. Air Soft and Paint Ball guns and accessories are available as well. Additionally, they offer gun repair services and also have an on-site leather repair station for the repairing of leather accouterments.

Rocky Top Armory carries brands like Glock, Sig, Walther, Tarus, Springfield, S&W, Ruger, Para, NAA, Mossberg, Kel Tec, FNH, CZ, Colt, Charter Arms, Bushmaster, Browning, Bond Arms, Bersa, Beretta, ATI, Winchester, Browning and many others.

One of the most unique aspects of Rocky Top Armory is that customers can build a custom tactical rifle on site. Patrons are encouraged to come in the store and pick from all the available options, and Chris will assemble and accurise the rifle to personal specifications. Chris will then take it to the range, sight in, and run through paces to be sure it performs to satisfaction.

We also plan on having a Build Your Own AR Class every three months in which we will teach the history, fundamentals, and operation of the AR, you will then be guided through each step in the assembly and testing of your very own AR. Our first class will be in October,” Clepper told the Times.

Another unique and very interesting sight at Rocky Top Armory is its museum. They have WWI, WWII and Korean War display right in the store. These displays are very personal to Chris.

“These displays are from my very own family. My father served during Korean War era, my great uncle during IIWW, and my Grandfather during WWI. These displays are their uniforms, battle gear, souvenirs, and other relics from their rime in the service. Also outside the store is a very unique bench. This bench was made by Brad Heun a wounded US veteran of the Iraqi war. Brad carved it with a chain saw from a solid 130 year old tree, and we are proud to display if for him at Rocky Top Armory.” Clepper stated.
