    Knob Creek, Kentucky...

    Hi...
    Now that I am retired and have the time, I am going to drive down to Knob Creek for the annual machine gun shoot this weekend.
    I will be leaving from the York, Pa. area and driving to Kentucky Friday morning.
    Going to stop in West Virginia for lunch and explore the Cabela's in Tridelphia area.
    Looking forward to this trip.
    Anybody from the forum plan to attend?

    You will enjoy that shoot. And the area around there.

    I only live a couple of hours away but I’ve never been. I hear the traffic and parking is just insane on that little gravel road. From what I understand you need to be prepared to hoof it a bit to get there.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Bourbon...

    Weather is supposed to be pretty good. Cool day, but rain free. Itís raining right now. That may make parking messy. The temp will be dropping and may not dry out the parking lots that are known to become mud holes.

    Thereís been a lot of work done so the gravel road is mostly paved now. They have shuttles usually from the parking lots since they can be pretty far.

    I think that was my reason for clicking on it as well. Knob Creek is some fine sipping Bourbon!

    Word of warning, do not speed going through West Point.

    Other than that, it should be a very good time.

    I grew up in that area, been to several of their machine gun shoots, it's a hoot.
    especially the night shoot.

    Benn there many times. Rarely had trouble with parking. As been said they have shuttles if you want but walking it is no big deal if you are going to be on your feet all day anyway. Have fun.

    Hi ..
    Just returned from Knob Creek, Kentucky last evening.
    Had a great time at the shoot.
    Rented a BAR, Thompson , MP-40 submachine gun and a M1919 belt fed .30cal machine gun.
    Son rented several modern machine guns as well.
    The afternoon shoot had a nice bonus as they rolled out three WWII vintage M5 Stuart light tanks and an anti tank gun and fired them repeatedly.
    Great fun...
    The night shoot was fun to see as well.
    They shot up some drums filled with what I assume was gasoline.
    Explosion was probably 100ft in the air with tracer rounds flying down range for about 20 minutes and star shells lighting up the range.
    Had a great time.
    Spent a lot of time perusing the on site gun shop. Very nice and well stocked...one of the bigger gun shops I have ever seen.
    Spent some time looking around at the on site gun show as well.
    Didn't buy anything of interest.
    Just had a great time.
    My son drove his Suburban for the trip...nearly 1300 miles for the round trip. It averaged a little over 14mpg...he paid for the gas and motel room for two nights. I paid for the tolls, meals and everything else. We each paid for our own machine gun rentals...about $200 each.
    Made some good memories.
    If my health allows, I believe we may go again sometime.
    Only bad part was the long drive...we left at 5AM Friday morning and didn't get to the hotel until after 7PM.
    Driving home Sunday...we left Louisville at 4AM and arrived back in York, Pa. at 4:30PM.
    Road weary...
    We got back in the Suburban and took my wife out to dinner and didn't get home until 8:00PM.

    All in all...a great weekend!
    Highly recommend the Machine Gun shoot to any forum member. It is worth the trip.

    You will always have the memories which are priceless. Glad a good time was had by both of you.
