The end of this years machine gun shoot at Knob Creek (October 10th, 2010):

EPIC!

From the description:

This event is the culmination of THE BEST GUN SHOW you could ever attend. You are viewing the first 6 1/2 minutes of the Knob Creek Machine Gun Night Shoot. Fully automatic weapons including the most modern M16 variations, AK47, .50 BMG, minigun, and classics from every major military conflict of the past century. Plus a few flares! Targets included propane tanks, automobiles, appliances, and large drums of fuel. This “outburst” ran for about 10 minutes, but the intensity had pretty much subsided at the 7 minute mark. Several shooters either did not reload, and/or they were no longer shooting tracers and incendiary ammo. The main range where the video was filmed is approximately 350-400 yards in length, and has a huge hill as a backstop. Due to the dry ground conditions and volume of smoke, you will notice the view becoming much more cloudy beginning around the 2:00 mark.

On his way to this weekend’s Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in West Point Kentucky:

Allen Harvey Friedlander, of Southfield, Mich., was piloting the plane when it crashed on an outer road that circles the fair grounds between gates 1 and 6 about 8:30 p.m., FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.

No one else was on board the Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee, which was registered to Friedlander.

Eight machine guns, three upper receivers — or gun parts used for assembly — and several thousand rounds of ammunition were removed from the plane, according to Alicia Smiley, a Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman, but the amount and types of guns removed was unavailable.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating the weapons, which are being held in Louisville police’s property room, Smiley said.

My guess is he was bringing all the guns to the Knob Creek shoot to make some money off rentals. (Now Confirmed HERE)

Interview with the Pilot:

Hopefully the man makes a speedy recovery, and the ATF gives him his guns back.
