The Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot is, for me, a yearly pilgrimage to all things automatic. With machine guns roaring every hour, vendors and purveyors of all things ballistic in abundance, and fellow enthusiasts all around, its better than being a Cubs Fan at the World Series (if they ever make it).
Each year, the night shoot is the highlight of my trip. For 15 minutes, freedom is espoused from hundreds of machine guns across a bevy of all calibers. The cacophony of noise is utterly exhilarating, but sadly, the fun can only be had behind the firing line until now.
Enter the drone, which captures all the tracers, explosions, and cannon fire (yes, they typically have a cannon or two there every year) in glorious high definition. While not as chest-thumping as the real-thing, if you have surround sound and a knob that goes to “11”, the video may just sell you on making the trip next year.
