Cool VIDEO: Pumpkin Carving, 2nd Amendment Style

By Debbie Schlussel

Trick or treat. The scariest of creatures, Barack Obama, would call this man, “Hickok45” on YouTube, a “bitter clinger.”  But I like this guy. According to him, this is how they carve pumpkins in Tennessee. Very cool and fun idea, especially if you are trying to improve your aim and other shooting skills. He uses a Glock 23. Since I have small hands, I prefer a Glock 19, though it is probably harder to do this with the 19, which has more kick. But maybe I’m wrong.

I wish he had turned that pumpkin around after he finished. I’d be curious to know if there’s an identical face on the other side of it, or a slightly more ragged (and thus scarier) looking one there.

Nice grouping. This guy has some skill. I love how he carves his pumpkin. However, a pumpkin makes a bad bullet trap. One of those bullets could keep traveling, although in the vast forests of Tennessee, most likely no one would be hit by the bullet, unlike the limited forests of Montgomery County, Maryland.

I know it’s close range, but the groupings are grest. Are your groupings that good, Deb? (not groapings–that’s what Al Gore does with massage therapists) that good, Deb? And did you see the Al Gore “parody” on the television show, “The Good Wife?”

Its a cool and fun way to carve out a scary pumpkin.

Liberals don’t like it? They’re wussies on guns. And on on pumpkin faces like these. We can always have them meet Freddy Kruger if they’re not up to it.

If you have to wait for bullets to go on sale at the gun shop before you can carve your Halloween pumpkin, yooooouuuuuu might be a redneck!

Hi Debbie
Actually, the Glock 23 is the same size gun as the Glock 19, just chambered for the .40 Smith and Wesson round. These are the mid size versions of the Glock service pistol, with the Glock 17 and 22 being the big brothers. If you think the 9mm kicks, then you will definitely notice the recoil of the .40.

My advice, shoot the 9mm until you get so used to the recoil it bores you and then upgrade to the .40. As a defense round, it is way, WAY better than the 9mm IMHO.

Happy shooting, err, punkin carvin!

I have a hard time believing that was a .40. I shot up a pumpkin a while back with 9mm and it put bigger holes in the pumpkin. Also, that dude must be able to palm a basketball no problem, b/c I thought it had to be a .380 by the way the gun looked in his hand (until I saw the caption)…

Oh, okay.

It’s okay to shoot whatever you want, but you can’t marry the love of your life if they are the same gender as you?
