Knob Creek is an outdoor shooting range located in Bullitt County Kentucky, near the community of West Point. The range is a former military-munitions test range, and hosts a number of shotgun, pistol, assault rifle, old military bolt-action and "subgun" competitions in April and October.
"The World's Largest Machine Gun Shoot and Military Gun Show" is an event that draws machine gun dealers, collectors and enthusiasts from all over the country. It consists of several rounds of firing at a wide variety of appliances, vehicles and pyramids of tires. Participants also have the opportunity to shoot at barrels of fuel with pyrotechnic charges attached, which explode when struck by bullets. The objective for these shooters is to destroy everything down range.
Happiness is a Warm Gun
The presence of many rare and powerful fully automatic weapons also draws many visitors, with firearms ranging from submachine guns to .50 BMG heavy machine guns and M134 Miniguns. The main event of the Machine Gun Shoot is the "Night shoot" where, after dark, gasoline-filled metal drums and explosives are set up and tracer ammunition lights up the night.
As much fun as this sounds, I will have to pass on the "Night Shoot". I mean really, lotta firepower, way up in the woods, and who knows the condition of the participants? haa
Wait, burgers you say? Burgers and beer and...?? Well, I guess I CAN stay a while...
