Good for a first experience of American Gun Culture

A great place to go to fire various types of guns and rifles, especially if you are a beginner The Machine Gun Shoot is also worth a visit if you are in the area when it is on.

This was our first time shooting at Knob Creek and it will certainly be our last. The range officer was rude and abrupt. As opposed to stating the "rules" initially, we were yelled at and treated like school children. Although gun safety is not to be taken lightly, it would be beneficial to not be belittled when given guidelines initially.... More

This was an awesome adventure. Really enjoyed visiting the gun range and getting to experience the night shoot! Looking forward to a return visit.

I went here with a couple of buddies and had a blast. This was my first time going to KC or a open range design but I loved it. It reminded me of the way the Marine Corps runs a lot of their ranges. I recommend bringing your old milk jugs or laundry detergent so you can shoot them. Range... More

I found this place on the internet and was so anxious to take my older teenage son there. The first part of our experience was very good. It is a nice gun shop. I love the fact that you can rent any of their used guns to shoot on the range and I believe my son was able to decide... More

I had heard about this place for over a decade from a couple of co-workers, and just never had the time to make it down for one of bi-annual machine gun shoots. Then after seeing the reality "GUNTUCKY" show that was filmed here by CMT, I decided I needed to make time to check it out. So whatever vision of... More

This is a must-go for all fans of shooting. There are Machine Gun Shoot's twice a year (spring and fall). It's hard to compare these to anything else because there is nothing like it.

Ever since I saw my first WW II movie, I have had a thing for machine guns, but have never been around one. This year we went to Knob Creek and enjoyed the experience immensely. One day was plenty. The rest of the week we played golf, went to museums, Maker's Mark Distillery, and ate lot of great food Tip........bring... More
