Hell of a shot and he seems genuine, kinda rare these days IMHO. He has his preferences (everyone does) but he is honest about it and tries to give an objective view.

Wish I had his range set up. Nutnfancy is informative but the "dude" gets old fast. However, I would like to believe both of them are trying to Help the viewer vs all the self-serving videos.

Its not easy to make a good video w all the critics/experts on the Internet. Some are downright cruel and love to rain on someone's parade. If you actually do know-it-all, why are you watching the video ?

Just my .02

He has at least one video where they take individual shots from specific videos and edit them together to play Christmas music.

Really? Christmas music?

It's actually 230 yards away.

His usual course has an 80 yard gong.

I would give just about anything for that range.

Find me the "230 yard" '2" snub nose' shot.
http://www.youtube.com/user/hickok45/videos?query=230+yards

The smallest I know of at 230 yards is the Glock 27 with a 3 1/2 inch barrel.

Hell, I never seen the '200 yards with a 2" snub nose' shot.
