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.

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

Only in America could you hope to see a sign advertising flamethrower rental.

I have an old potato gun made from pvc pipe, it can blow a hole in the water like 3 feet deep.

I've never before had the desire to rent a flamethrower. I didn't even know you COULD rent a flamethrower. Now, before I die, I simply MUST rent a flamethrower.

Men are so strange! Tack a "Danger" sign on a fire thingie and ... heh

It worries me that a voice in my head said "hmmm I wonder if pissing on machine gun porn is a thing"
It worries me more that it more than likely is.

There's nothing like having to piss on a machine-gun barrel because you don't
have an oven-mitt or piece of asbestos cloth to swap it out.
Especially when you're lying on your side trying to stay "small".

I would love to see others shoot machine guns, don't think I would want to try one out myself...

I thought this was going to be about whiskey, and now I'm all disappointed. Cool pictures, though. The girl in the first one is kinda cute in a 'I wouldn't say 'No'' kinda way.


So if we don't all vote the same way, we'll be deadlocked and have to
be sequestered in the Springfield Palace Hotel ...
