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.

There is no visual system in place to let shooters, especially, someone unfamiliar with this range of when there is a cease fire, when there is an all clear. There is one person trying to watch too many shooters. A clear, easy system of color coded flags, paddles, or lights need to be implemented to keep people safe . A... More

This is a Must see for anyone who appreciates good clean fun with guns!😃 Almost any kind of full auto can be seen or even rented for a few rounds. It is an interesting place for a family even...minus children stressed by noise. Stay for the night shoot.....some say it is Viet Nam during an USA air strike.

If you are even remotely interested in shooting and firearms you can't miss Knob Creek Gun Range. They have a tremendous selection of firearms, website says over 3000 I'd say more, rack after rack and display case after display case. Walk in the door and you will be amazed, all kinds of accessories, reloading supplies, and of course ammo. Staff... More

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

I planned a private event for my husbands 50th birthday. Chad was very helpful plan what types of firearms and targets we can get for the day. 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
