West Point, Ky. – America’s largest machine gun shoot – the semi-annual Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot – is held twice a year in Kentucky.

Ben Philippi has attended for several years and was allowed to fly his drone over the most recent shoot to film this spectacular footage that he posted to

Philippi says that an estimated 50,000 rounds are fired during the 15-minute volley with “many of them tracers aimed at exploding fuel drums, cars, and boats.”
