Shoot an Uzi, watch Napalm bomb drop

The Knob Creek Gun Range has a combo Machine Gun Shoot and Jungle Walk twice a year, in April and October. $10 to get in and $15 for jungle walk, more if you would like to shoot a Tommy gun 1919, Uzi sub, or others,

They have a very cool light show with all the military weapons in many colors, it's like a fireworks show. They drop a napalm bomb. Took my daughter there for her 21st birthday -- was she surprised! Kids are welcome to come see too! Educational - owners of the guns and vets are there to show and talk. Info at
