Hickok45, in case you are not one of the 190,000 people who viewed his most recent pumpkin carving YouTube video, is a middle-school teacher from Tennessee who has found a solution to the arduous work of carving a pumpkin. A knife, which makes its way through the shell of a pumpkin at painstaking rates and is a lackluster tool for the purposes of executing perfect circles for eyes, will seem obsolete whence you view Hickok45, otherwise known as Greg. This year, Greg wielded a Colt 1911 and aimed it at a pumpkin to carve out a jack-o-lantern. Really.
Unless you have an offbeat Grandpa like Hickok, or are an expert marksman yourself, I would stick strictly to watching videos on his YouTube Channel. You can learn a lot from Hickok45, things that will make you wish you had a Smith & Wesson to turn the lights off when you are too cozy in bed to get up and use the light switch.
