I think you are talking about the Knob Creek semi annual machine gun shoot.
Here (http://www.knobcreekshoot.com/) is a link.
Here (http://www.machinegunshoot.com/) is another.
Last I heard there was a ten year waiting list to get a spot on the firing line.

I've been several times , always an awesome show , always crowded , you can rent/shoot about any full auto you desire or watch others on the firing line blast away at junk cars etc..
If it's not too far for you every gun nut should go once .

There's a 10 year wait for a spot on the UPPER firing line. They do have rentals available tho.
It's very impressive.
4.5 hours from St. Louis city.

Used to go when I was younger. Went with my dad the first year (circa 1986). Haven't been back since '98.
Good place to take kids to have them view history in action. :)
The Patton Museum is a must see as well.

I'd be up another creek, sans paddle, if I were to ask SWMBO if I could go.

I've been there, with the rest of my family. All I can say is "Whoa! That place ROCKS!"
Ahh...machine guns, flamethrowers...yes....

Back in '97, when I went to my first one, we turned into the drive off Highway 44, and the windows were down.
We smelled the powder.
We knew we were home.

Being that it's only a 3.5 hour drive from my house, I've been there quite a few times. Have even participated in the assault weapons competition.
But I've got to be honest... the full-auto action on the main range bores me. I just enjoy walking though the pole barns and booths looking at stuff.

Yeah, I'm mostly into going and seeing friends that I get to see twice a year...
