Motels: There are some motels near the range, including: Best Western Gold Vault Inn, 1225 N Dixie Hwy, Radcliff (270) 351-1141. Golden Manor Motel, 346 Dixie Hwy, Muldraugh (270) 942-2800. Directions: From Highway 31W, Dixie Highway, in Muldraugh enter the post through the Brandenburg Gate & continue to Frazier Rd, turn left onto Frazier Rd & go to the four way stop at Wilson Rd, go straight through the intersection & travel down Main Range Rd past French Range. Continue down Main Range Rd & go down a very steep hill, at the base of the hill turn left onto Porter River Rd. Follow Porter River Rd across the bridge to the first gate on the right, turn right & go up the steep hill on the gravel road. Gate Procedures: All shooters must use the Brandenburg Gate to enter Fort Knox. Have a picture ID and match program ready at the gate. Tell the gate guards you are traveling to the rifle clinic at Scott Mountain Range and whether or not you have any firearms. Bring only the firearms you plan to shoot and call the clinic coordinator prior to the clinic to have your name and address on the gate roster. Your vehicle may be searched and you may be asked for vehicle registration and proof of insurance papers. This happens to everyone entering the post whose vehicle is not registered on Fort Knox, not just people with firearms. It is very helpful to be cooperative and polite when dealing with the guards. Unless on official law enforcement business, Fort Knox considers all peace officers as civilians and thus subject to all these requirements. CAUTION: The clinic is on a U.S. military installation and everyone is subject to all applicable federal laws and military regulations while on post. Concealed Carry Permits are not valid on federal installations and carrying concealed weapons of any kind on Ft. Knox is against federal law and military regulations. Competitors should arrive at Fort Knox early in order to process through the gate and arrive at the clinic promptly. All firearms must be unloaded and secured in an appropriate container. Ammunition must also be stored in appropriate containers and kept separate from firearms. MATCH IS FULL................ UPDATE........... Match is FULL Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
