Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot Video

Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot

There's an upcoming program on the History Channel about the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot you don't want to miss. Here's their write-up:

Upcoming on the History Channel:

Knob Creek Gun Range: #90.
Airs on Tuesday, January 3 at 8:00pm ET

Host R. Lee Ermey heads to Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky, outside of Fort Knox, for the Knob Creek Shoot, a weekend when machine-gun owners and collectors converge for unbridled mayhem. At this former military-munitions test range, shooters nationwide come to buy, sell, and trade.

First, the Gunny shows us around, talks about the history, hits sales tables, and fires off a few thousand rounds--from state-of-the-art to early vintage.

Next, Lee takes a turn on the "Jungle Walk", a machine-gun shooting course with hidden targets and dense brush to recreate what it was like for the grunts in Viet Nam; and he gets a lift on a mule to the Knob Creek helipad where he goes aloft in a Cayuse OH-6A Helicopter for the range's aerial shooting course.

Then, it's the night shoot, when you really get to see raw power as machine guns shoot tracers and fire at targets filled with diesel fuel and dynamite, incinerating cars, refrigerators, and oil drums.

Now, since not all of you have access to the History Channel, you can download the entire program and watch it at your leisure. Be warned, however, that it's a 47 meg. file! If you don't have broadband, don't even try!

Download the program here.

A friend of mine was down there at the time and go to meet him.
He said he was a very nice, friendly guy, and interestingly, a total chick-magnet.
