From Leftfield Pictures, the producers of the hit series “Pawn Stars,” comes the loud and colorful Sumner family of West Point, Ky., in the series Guntucky. At their family-owned and operated Knob Creek Gun Range, customers can try out and purchase a broad spectrum of legal firearms, from cannons to rare collectibles. The world famous Range has been in the Sumner family for three generations, led by Patriarch Gran-pa Biff Sumner, Jr. Biff handed over day-to-day business of the range to his reliable son, Kenny, who now has his hands full thanks to the rest of the family. The Sumner family also includes Kenny’s irrepressible brother, Steven; his usually free-spirited son Chad; and a new generation of Knob Creek Gun Range employees, Steven’s kids, Stephanie and Payton.

Steven is the charming and carefree, self-proclaimed oddball of the Sumner family. Sporting his trademark Mohawk, he’s a true sight to behold. He’s also funny, smart and a complete original: a down-to-earth family man with the free spirit of a child. Letting his brother, Kenny, work the nuts, bolts and numbers of the family gun range, Steven is often able to shape his own schedule. With that time, he might be off dealing with his kids or neighbors; or he might be out drumming-up new business for the range. But more often than not, he’s getting creative for range customers who want a shooting experience beyond paper targets. Steven is both the “soul” and the “working grunt” at one of the most famous shooting ranges in the world. His thoughts on that mixed honor: a slight shrug.
Owner of the Knob Creek Gun Range
One of Kentucky’s Grand Old Men when it comes to rifles, pistols and machine guns, Gran-pa stands tall in the region, even though every person around him is a few feet higher. Biff created the biannual event that put KCR on the world map: “The KCR Machine Gun Shoot.” The “KCR Machine Gun Shoot” is the largest event of its kind, and it’s part of an empire that includes the Knob Creek Gun Range, the nearby Lilʼ Biffʼs Motel and Biff’s Gun World (a shop of collectables a lot like the man himself: eccentric, eclectic, wildly-scattered and quite fascinating).

Kenny is the official “boss” at KCR, even though Biff still calls many of the shots – and even though his son, Chad, and brother, Steven, often try to pull rank. Still, Kenny is polite, business-minded and savvy when it comes to haggling over gun prices and knowing a good deal when he sees one. Kenny is the quintessential “Good Cop” of the range; levelheaded, calm and smiling to all. He’s neither the dreamer nor the schemer that we often see in Steven and Chad, but that’s for the good of the family business. KCR has a steady captain with Kenny.
