Olaf from Netherlands loves the Knob Creek machine gun shoot (VIDEO)

It’s the third time Olaf, a tourist from the Netherlands, attended the Knob Creek machine gun shoot in West Point, Kentucky. He flies in specifically for the event. He loves shooting machine guns and watching the famous night shoot.

I ran into him during a lull in the shooting at October 2017’s shoot. I asked him if there were events like Knob Creek in the Netherlands. “No, we cannot do that at home. It’s not allowed. There are no automatic guns allowed,” he replied.

Olaf didn’t think it was a good idea either to shoot machine guns in the Netherlands. “We don’t have places like this, large places for shoot outs,” he said.

Netherlands has a population of 27 million and is roughly half the size of Kentucky. By comparison, Kentucky has a population of 4.4 million.

He enjoys visiting the US, and does so often. When I asked if he was a Trump fan, he told me he met Trump in the 1990’s. “I think he’s ok,” he said. “New wind in the politician world.”
