The Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in one word…


    The Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot runs Friday through Sunday, twice a year, and Saturday night is the main event. About an hour before dark, folks are out on the range setting up all sorts of explosives while a crowd builds, anxiously awaiting what we all know is coming.

    The lights go out, and the next thing you know machine guns are going off for almost 20 straight minutes. This year’s October 2013 edition did not disappoint. I’ve now crossed this off of my “Things to Do Before I Die” list.

    Other than the beginning, my favorite part is at the 5:50 mark. Enjoy!
