Gun lovers descended on Kentucky for the biggest private machine gun event in the world at the weekend, with shooters given one objective - destroy everything.

Around 20,000 thrill-seekers fired Tommy Guns, AK-47s and Uzis at abandoned vehicles and barrels of fuel strapped with pyrotechnic charges to create 'fireballs from hell'.

Paul Winters, who has been going to the Knob Creek Gun Shoot and Military Gun Show near West Point since 1992, said: 'This is Disneyland with guns.'

'This is a place to come compete and have fun with your buddies,' he added.

The shoot, dubbed a 'second amendment success story', was started by Biff Sumner in 1965 along with a few friends who were having a cookout and firing off weapons for fun.

The two-day event - held in April and October - has evolved into the biggest event of its kind in the world, attracting thousands of automatic weapons enthusiasts from across the US and abroad.


Lots of fun pictures in the article.

There's always a guy there with a minigun loaded with tracer rounds, probably blowing through 20k a minute.

Good fun, but true rifleman would never waste ammo like that.

Only for the shooters who had Democrat parents.

Patrick, I see you post dailymail articles frequently.

Is this a publication with any credibility?

Credibility is so old hat. What are you trying to do, wipe out 90 percent of the press, the government and the legal system?
