America Kentucky's 2nd Amendment Paradise

When it started in the 1960s, the Machine Gun Shoot and Military Gun Show at Knob Creek Gun Range outside of Louisville, Kentucky, attracted only a handful of people. Today, the twice-yearly event draws about 13,000 spectators as they come to watch shooters fire fully automatic, military-grade weapons at downrange targets, instantly shredding propane tanks and cars. The event builds to a crescendo of fire and heat during Saturday’s “Night Shoot” as range security officers outfit targets with explosives that detonate on impact.
