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.

Lots of fun, go and see many different machine guns being fired. There is many vendors displaying and selling many gun related items.

If you only have a weekend go on Saturday (all day, see the night shoot/ tracers). If you want a little more looking time Friday, Saturday and Sunday as a combo will work.Lots of guns, parts, ammo and you-name-it to see and buy. Don't forget machine guns are for rent at 2 of the ranges ( 3 different ranges at... More

Most of the family and friends have never held any type of firearm and they had a great time. We even had my mother in law shooting a 50 cal at the end.... More

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

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
