Just got a notice in the mail that fall 2021 will be the last machine gun shoot at Knob Creek range in Kentucky. We have made a lot of friends there in the last 35 years . All will be missed

Didn’t get any explaination. If anything i would “guess” maybe insurance could be a problem with the current anti gun BS going on. The range is not closing just not having any more organized shoots.

    That is going to be a crazy time, but a packed crowd too. Last time I was scheduled to go was the year of the flood. I'm sure everyone has seen those pictures.

    I too would bet insurance is the issue.

    It's been a long and successful run!

    On my bucket list....damn....
    If I’m going, I guess October is my last chance. It’s 11 hours from my house. And that’s going through Memphis, so I better tack on another 3-4 hours.

    Take a camper and hope you can find a place to set it up. If not you may have to stay in Memphis. There will be no place to stay and probably no place in the campgrounds if you don't already have a reservation.

    I live about 2 hours away and have never been. Life gets in the way sometimes.

    I hate to hear this. I had some great times there through the years. The night fire is a hoot.
