A weekend at the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot (42 PICS + VIDEO)

October 2017’s Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in West Point, Kentucky was a huge success. The event saw a huge turnout with hundreds of guns firing and no one getting hurt. It’s my eighth year in a row attending the event. Here are some photos from the past weekend at the creek.
