    Im looking for an outdoor range within a 40 min (or so) drive of Louisville.

    Ive just about had it with the wingnuts (shooters AND employees) at Knob Creek.

    If I *have* to go there again, ill be wearing body armor :(

    Just because the guy behind the counter yells at the customers and the range officer has more fingers than he has teeth oh yea and a t-shirt that only reaches his navel I think wingnuts is a little harsh. OH I know what it was you wore that tin foil hat didn't you? They are just bullet magnets. Leave it home next time and take the place for what it is. It has been that way for as long as i can remember and will not change.

    At Knob Creek, I trade the Tinfoil hat for polished stainless steel. Just as reflective but slightly more bullet resistant :)

    Did anyone ever notice all of the bullet holes in the ceilings both in the roof of the covered line and the roof of the building? When I saw that, I decided a long time ago that place can be quite dangerous just to be in the vicinity.

    There is one in Pekin In. Thats less then 40 minutes from the bridge. Everybody got a few stories about Knob Creek and it's safty but there aren't a lot of choices.

    Anyone is more than welcome to open there own outdoor range to steal business from KCR, but until I find a boutique range that could cater to all my whims, I'll put up with the occasional quirky individual.

    I don't know what the snobby attitudes about the staff is all about. They are the salt of the earth. I would much rather deal with any employee of KCR than any other range around the metro.

    I guess I would have to agree because I just paid for another years membership.

    KCR is the best shootig range around......

    With the long rifle range and the KPDL pistol range nothing is this area is even close.

    No it not a range for the family when you let junior run around and expect a R.O. to hold your hand and keep junior out of trouble.

    Yes there are holes in the roof after all the largest gun show in the world is held here.

    If you don't like it there are other places you can go and spend a lot more money

    There are some occasional difficult people but then they are everywhere.You may even be one of them who is complaining.

    I like the cockatoo-like-creature that haunts the shop.
