  • Francisco says:

    does the military gun show go on during the October Machine gun shoot or is the gun show on a different date?

    • KCR-Admin says:

      The Military Gun Show goes on during the Machine Gun Shoot every time. It runs Friday from 9am to 8pm, Saturday from 9am to 10pm and Sunday from 9am to 4pm.

    • KCR-Admin says:

      The Machine gun shoot and gun show are on the same dates. They are the second weekends of april and october. April does depend on the date of easter. In that case it is the first weekend of april.

  • bob says:

    Woo Hoo GUNS!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thank you for your help!

  • Nick says:

    I’ve never been to Knob Creek, so just a couple quick questions. What is the protocol on bringing your own firearm? Do weapons need to be in a case? Ammo still in the box?

    • KCR-Admin says:

      Knob Creek is operated as a cold range. All weapons are to be unloaded and no magazines in the weapon.
      While on the line all weapons that you have need to have chamber flags. They can be purchased for.50
      each in the range house. Don’t have to be a member just $10 per person all day shooting. If you are wanting
      to know about shooting at the Machine Gun Shoot just let me know. Ammo can be in any container. Guns can be in a case or not in one.

  • Art Ferguson says:

    Is the bridge fixed yet?

  • KCR-Admin says:

    He will be able to get in through the alternate route. The shoot will go on.

  • ERIC says:

    Does anyone know anybody that are selling AR engraved dust covers?

  • ERIC says:

    WANTED AN AK FOR AROUND $300-400 LOOKS NOT IMPORTANT BUT FUNCTION IS

  • phil galletta says:

    do you need to be a resident of kentucky to shoot at your range? To be shooting at your machine gun event?

    • KCR-Admin says:

      You don’t have to be a Ky resident or even a member to the range to shoot. To shoot during the Machine Gun Shoot we have a lower range for the public to shoot at. That is $10 for a 90 minute relay. To shoot on the main line there is a 10 year waiting list and the shooter must have at least one ground mounted machine gun.

  • What are the rental prices for a try with say an MG42 or a Browning .50 or .30 caliber, and are there any decent hotels in the area if you are driving from say Washington, D.C.?

    I have fired a lot of small small arms, but never anything life the aforementioned, any information would be interesting. Thank you.

    • KCR-Admin says:

      Prices for a belt-fed machine gun are around 1 to 1.50 per round. The .50 cal is about 8 – 10 dollars around. The best place for hotels are Shepherdsville, Brooks and Ratcliff. They are the closest and fill up fast. So if you are coming mught what to make the reservation soon. All the information you need is in our website.

  • Mike says:

    What do i need to do to fire a machine gun and what are the prices?

  • Joseph W. says:

    How much are the gun rentals at the Machine Gun Shoot?

  • Joe says:

    First time going to Knob Creek, what is the best hotel to stay in.
