"It's that time of the year again" says YouTube user kickok45 while opening his annual "educational" video where he shows his one million subscribers how to properly carve a pumpkin with a gun. His YouTube channel is a collection of videos showcasing all kinds of guns, but it is a yearly tradition to post ways to carve pumpkins with a variety of guns, and ways to"kill" a pumpkin, which involves a number of methods to smash these orange creatures out of the vegetable kingdom.

The video description reads:

Watch this man carve a pumpkin with his rifle, because 'Murica
Yep, October means it's time for Pumpkin Carving at the Hickok Compound! We're still a bit perplexed that so many people consider my method a bit unusual; I've never known any other way to do it. :-) Firearm: Stock Colt 1911 Series '80 Model 1991 Links to Some of Our Pumpkin Carving History: Pumpkin Carving III : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2uVS0XXAyE Pumpkin Carving II : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGH8Af9Hdb0 Pumpkin Carving: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpJpBWFiqPc&feature=watch_response http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofXPOaoZP_I Pumpkin Killing : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJCkQUdA9QQ&feature=watch_response Pumpking Killing III : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofXPOaoZP_I Giant Pumpkin Shoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8qtO9hu97g
Yep, it's pumpkin carving time again, and certainly by now you all know how we do it at the Hickok45 Compound. This year's pumpkin carver is an Arsenal SGL 21 (7.62X39). Last year's pumpkin carving: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGH8Af9Hdb0 Don't try this at home! :-) By the way, I'm really enjoying my new Diamond D Custom Leather belt that I'm wearing in this video. A lot of belts like this are just too thick to be comfortable, but this one is perfect. It's heavy enough to be a great gun belt, but it's light enough to just be a great all-around belt. http://www.diamonddcustomleather.com/Holster_Belts.php
Hickok45 demonstrates the proper method for carving a pumpkin again this year! Check out our other pumpkin adventures, as well. If you'd like to see some other very "practical" uses for firearms, check out my "Special Targets" playlist. Guns also work very well as tree trimmers, lawn mower fixers, poetry props, etc. :-) By the way, lot of questions about the backside of the pumpkin. It's the pumpkin picture that has dirt on it. The backside was rather dirty. Follow link below: Pics: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hickok45/264641617269?ref=ts

Hickok45 demonstrates 10 proven methods for killing and disposing of pumpkins. This pumpkins are grown to be targets, by the way. 1. Axe 2. Louisville slugger 3. Bowie Knife (Idaho Knife Works) 4. Tomahawk 5. The Force 6. Claw Hammer 7. 2X4 8. Desert Eagle 9. Remington 870 with Slug 10. Fireworks For PIcs: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hickok45/264641617269?ref=ts By the way, if you are tempted to "feel bad" about somebody destroying food, you might try to restrain yourself from commenting; it really does make you appear quite ignorant as to how the economy and the world works and the reasons why hunger might actually exist somewhere in this country.
More education for you on methods for killing pumpkins. They probably did not teach you this stuff in school; fortunately, we're here to fill in the gaps in your education! Editorial comment: PLEASE try to avoid revealing your ignorance about how the economy works and why there are people starving. If you think destroying watermelons or pumpkins is "heartless" or contributing to somebody's starvation, I feel sorry for you. I suggest that even if you think this that you refrain from commenting to that effect; believe me, it just makes you look very ignorant. Sorry, but the truth hurts. :-) Also, perhaps you do NOT understand economic principles and food distribution issues. Either way, I invite you to make a donation to a great organization and my favorite charity: The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. http://www.secondharvestmidtn.org/about/index.php They simply help feed people - with virtually NO religious or political strings attached, which is important to me. 615.329.3491
Yes, here we are again this year, having to provide the world with education that should be taught in grammar school. Hopefully, you've enjoyed the education we've provided in years past regarding the fine art of pumpkin killing.

I might decide I want to help "promote" Bob Dylan, but I can't do it by taking HIS creations and publishing a medley of HIS material. Duh. :-) This is not an arguable issue; it just reveals a person's lack of ethics or ignorance when they attempt to defend this practice for one second.
