Has anyone seen his videos. As a new shooter I just wanted others opinions on the validity of the knowledge he shares.

I think he's got some pretty honest reviews for firearms on his channel. I'm no expert, but he seems legit.

He doesn't frequently express any negative opinion about the guns he demos, but he does a good job going over the features of each and his personality is great. You can tell he really has fun out there.

Hickock45 is pretty well known around the Youtube cyberspace. I find him to be acutely knowledgeable about handguns, shotguns, Uzi's, AR's, and AK47's.
Plus he is an affable guy to boot. He had recently lost his friend (Gunner) his dog.

Just my opinion but anyone that can hit steel at about 200 yards with a 2" snub nose gets the benefit of the doubt with me. Seriously, his videos are both entertaining and informative to me. He seems to know his stuff, his reviews are practical to an average shooter and he gives all the guns a pretty thorough workout.

He is the man. Just take it all with a grain of salt, he shoots and gives his opinion....can be funny too. Way better than that bed wetter nutnfancy

He’s one of the few people that spends more time actually talking about the firearm, instead of extended descriptions of why he’s making the video, why he didn’t do it yesterday, what he bought at the store when he went shopping last week, what his cousin thought about something, what his favorite color of socks are, etc.

Hickock45 does more of that than I’d like as well, and he tends to repeat himself, but does provide enough meat about the firearm. What he is absolutely, is a dead shot. The videos of how he shoots pistols are what you want to watch.

My favorite firearm related videos so far are this guy’s:

He doesn’t talk at all. The videos are actually little instructive movies about different aspects of long range shooting. I think they’re brilliant. Just make sure you play the ones in English.

Hickok45 is one of the very few YouTube gun enthusiasts that I frequently watch and put a great deal of stock in. Seems like a knowledgeable, skilled, and easy to relate to type of guy. Not full of himself or his stable of toys, but simply there to share information with other like-minded folks. I like his stuff a lot, and have found that I tend agree with many of his preferences. Now all I need to do is acquire that level of skill (a backyard range wouldn't hurt either).

I also like a lot of Nutnfancy's stuff. Honestly, I don't always agree with his preferences or perspective (and he does say "dude" way too much). But he offers up a great deal of useful information that the viewer can digest and make up their own mind about.

If your in to guns, i would definitely sub to his channel. Beware, if your not a glock fan, you may not like his channel:D. But really, he stays objective to his vids.

That's kinda how I felt when I put this up. I know a lot of people have a hard time hitting a target at 20 yards and on a regular basis you see him nailing the gong at 80 yards. And a lot of times its with short barreled guns

I enjoy Hickok's vids. He is an excellent shot, experienced re loader, former LEO, former competition shooter and now he trains LEO's in his home town.

If you are new to guns, go through his older vids, he has some good stuff on stances, holding the gun etc.

He is a Glock fanatic but he always gives everything he shoots a fair shake.

I like watching him. I watched a video where he was hitting a gong at 200 yards with a Glock 27. Amazing!

His videos are among the best I have found. He really seems to know his stuff. And I would just love to have his range to shoot on!!

I was just watching another of Hickok45’s videos and it occurs to me that if he had his gongs and plates ‘tuned’ he could probably play ‘Mary had a Little Lamb’ on them using bullets. Maybe even the 1812.
