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.

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

They have 2 machine gun shoots and gun shows each year, Spring and Fall. This needs to be on everyone's "A" list for top 10 events. You can rent machine buy guns, buy machine guns, and get lots of questions answered from on ATF officials.
