Today, bad news dropped in the industry for firearms and machine gun lovers with a announcement from Kenny Sumner, owner of Knob Creek Gun Range. This October will be the last Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot. This news was unearthed via a picture of a signed letter by Mr. Sumner breaking the bad news to the community. For decades people from all over the U.S. have come to Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot to shoot some amazing full automatic weapon systems and machine guns at Knob Creek.
Below, is the letter from Kenny Sumner on the end of the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot.
Half a century – 50 years – Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot – every year – twice a year – well except for a flood and a pandemic! We’ve made many friends – some have become family. It has become a twice a year Reunion for many vendors and shooters. Your patronage has been much appreciated over the years. However, old age has crept up on us all. The Time Has Come – October 2021 will be the last Machine Gun Shoot. Hope to see you then!
Our shop and range will continue to operate on our regular schedule. Come see us anytime.
It is sad to see the end of an era in firearms history. For the past 50 years Knob Creek shoot has been one of the premier machine gun shoots in the nation. Over that time hundreds of thousands of people have flocked to Bullitt County, Kentucky for the experience to shoot and look at some of the most rarest firearms out there. People had a chance to shoot: full auto MP-5’s, AR-15s, AK-47s, Ma Deuce (M2 .50 Cal Machinegun), and M134 minigun to name a few. Any firearm you could imagine it was a good chance it was available to look at and shoot at the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot.
Hopefully, with the end of the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot another shooting event/extravaganza will step in its place. That’s what we should all hope for in the community.
