>today we're lookin aaaaat
>soooome lever guuuns
>let's get my ears on
>let's see if we can get a 2 liter here....
I swear this guy is only watched by people who don't shoot much or can't shoot at all. It's the only reason I can find for why anyone would watch some guy shoot. It's like watching someone else golf. FUCKING BORING.
I think the same thing for the most part. He does have some good segments from time to time. He had one where he basically had every smokeless US service rifle to the present day and went through them all.
>hey guys, thanks for tuning in to another video at forgotten weapons dot com, I am Ian, I am here today at the Rock Island auction house
No I like channels that actually pass on information in a reasonably concise manner or are straight up opinion/humor.
Forgotten weapons is prob #1 for learning things I didn't already know. Ian turned a shill job(hawking RIA's shit) into a learning opportunity.
Hickock is all hurr durr Bud's guns let's watch orange soda fly!
Oh and Bud's may be the second worst online retailer in the world after cheaperthanshit.
>video opens with Hickok shooting the weapon
>he says what gun it is
>give useful info
>usually field strips it
>shoots a few magazines at different targets/ranges
>makes some goofy jokes here and there, doesn't take himself seriously
>seems to really enjoy himself when shooting whatever gun he's shooting
>no annoying music or graphics
yeah those videos are rough
>muh cupper custom shop
>c-check it out guys
>h-here we are in T*rkroach land at a factory built on old German machinery and American money
>here we are in Israel again to talk to IWI you fucking anti-semites
>nothing but silence, it has been months now
Fuck I hope he's okay.
He shoots a lot of stuff I would never be able to get my hands on and isn't a giant faggot like FPSRussia.
Plus, his same old "boring" routine is kind of calming in a way. If he were more zen-like he could be the Bob Ross of shooting.
so, never seen one of his videos before then, hm?
>he practices everyday
>implication is this is bad somehow
Get mugged nogunz

Jerry Miculek is the real grandpa of the gun world. Chuck Norris couldn't get within a half a mile of him without his teeth rotting from all the copper-coated candy Jerry would be feeding him.
but he mentions federal's sponsorship more often you fucking retarded mongoloid shit spewing half dead nigger faggot
Be strong. Be of good courage. God bless America. Long live the Republic.
>hey guys this is Andrew with GY6vids
>today we're shooting some In The Red© exploding targets
>let's get into it
>once again this is GY6vids, don't forget to forget leave a like, subscribe, share, and visit [sponsor site]
Alright listen the fuck up you godless cholo.
ONE he is practically the louvre of guns. You're curious about a gun? Thinking of buying something new? Split my dick and call me Caitlyn if he doesn't have a video on it.
TWO he is legitimately informative. Are there better channels out there for info on guns? Of fucking course there are. Slip your wiley ass over to forgotten weapons if that's what knocks your jollies. But you can ALWAYS tune in to one of this mans videos, firm in the knowledge that you will learn something new and interesting.
AND THREE he has one of the most relaxed, easygoing temperaments I've ever seen. Every. Fucking. Video. He greets you with a smile and a laugh, he tells some stupid dad-tier jokes, and he makes you feel like you're sitting down with a good friend and a cold beer to discuss something you both enjoy.
And that last point, most of all, is why nearly 2 million people watch his videos. Because he is the cool, old, gun owning uncle that all of us wanted and never had. Yeah, there are more informative channels out there. There are channels with flashier guns and better tests and more impressive shooting. And when I want that, I will go there. But when I just want to sit back, relax, and smile at an old man who lights up while talking about his passion with me, I will watch hickock, because that motherfucker is the bob Ross of guns and sometimes that's just what I wanna watch.
god forbid a popular youtuber gets some sponsoring. You don't pay for his videos faggot.
At most he just thanks Buds, Federal, and whoever lent him the gun at the beginning very briefly and goes into it more at the end when you can easily stop the video.
This dude is more fun. hes like hickock45 with a v8 engine.
>guns up shooter ready
>pop pop pop pop pop
>hoo hoo hooo! now that was fun!
and hes pretty well versed in older guns.
>damn son where'd you fine this?
/r/ some old copypasta/screenshot of a bunch of youtube shooters getting in a firefight in a parking lot and everyone shits their pants when Hicock45 steps out and says "now lemme see itf I can hit something..."
>because that would be scary as shit
He has to be one of the best dead eye shooters I've ever seen
Be strong. Be of good courage. God bless America. Long live the republic.
>youtube shooters in firefight
It's easy to to take your time like Bud'scock45. Jerry Miculek would dump a mag in him before he got his mile long arms into his retarded weaver stance.
>FREAKIN MOSIN NAGANT
> Now I'm not going to talk about Glocks
>That is one gun we talk about all the time.... here at Moss Pawn....
>30 Min. Later
>and that's why I love the Glock 17...
Every video has
>here is a Saiga 12 conversion
>Here is a glock
Not saying there isn't anything wrong with that, just would like to see something different....
>He can't fathom why people would want to watch some guy shoot guns they don't own.
In the days leading up to buying muh Beretta, I was watching all the videos he has with a 92FS in it just so I could learn as much as possible.
Grab your lunchables because were about to start CarniK Con
Can you imagine if he'd ever go on a killing spree? When he runs and guns in some of his videos he sort of skips around giggling as he shoots. I imagine the same would happen during his murder spree except there'd be skulls getting popped instead of 2-liters and watermelons. I can just see him executing someone as they crawl away and giggling then saying "he tried to get away!" Or when a pink mist comes from someone's head he laughs and yells "dramatic!"
I like how Hickok rips on people from Kentucky and makes silly jokes and then asks how many people believed that.
He's seriously like my uncle/dad in how he acts. Laid back and always making old man human jokes.
Plus he's a good shot and actually covers the weapons he fires without gussying them up. So many youtube reviewers talk about the SPACE AGE FIREARM THAT WILL BLAST YOUR BALLS OFF WOAAAAAAH, while Hickok tends to keep things grounded in reality.
Maybe I can see how some people might get annoyed at Bud's and Federal, but they're literally the reason he's able to host the channel (guns and ammo, who would have though?), along with nice folks who lend him guns.
Hickok's channel is an encyclopedia of guns. You can find pretty much any firearm of major interest on there.
>HEY VICKERS TACTICAL FANS, LARRY VICKERS HERE, AND I'VE GOT...
I put him on in the background while I work on stuff. It's good background shit. This and Forgotten Weapons are probably the best youtube channels out there.
He's pretty much a beacon of level headed focus and temperament. And a natural teacher.
He mentions buds only when he gets a gun from them, and federal once per episode, because they give him all his ammo (and fuck it, I'd take that deal). At the end there is an ad for SDI that I generally don't watch, but sometimes it just plays and I forget to change the video, which is probably what they're counting on.
>Hey guys, today at the range I brought out some ZQI® ammunition
>It's NATO spec
>NATO spec guys
>My TAVOR™ shoots best with ZQI© ammunition, which is NATO SPEC. NATO. SPEC. AMMUNITION.
Maybe two years ago. Now it would be
>today we're looking at a lever gun that Buds sent us, I've put about 50 rounds of federal ammo through it and it shoots good
>Special thanks to Buds gun shops and federal ammunition for making this possible, remember to check out shipmygun.com and egunner and all the stuff theyve got going on over there
>(close up on boxes of federal ammo)
>I don't know all that much about these guns, I just get sent them, but the finish and wood is beautiful
>I keep having this problem where it gets light strikes, but its probably nothing. remember, you can buy this gun online though a special auction at buds, all proceeds of which go right into my pocket
>Lets smoke some pots!
>HOHO look at that two liter!
>(miscellaneous hickock noises).
>implying Feinstein and her ilk wouldn't be wiped out in a mass Hickock
>"Hickok45 here, and I'm about to see if a gun grabber skull has the same density as a bottle."
>Feinstein brain matter sprays out like soda
>quick nerd check
>lets make sure theres no roundazines in the chamber
>today we're filling this glock brand glock with preparation H-azine
most /k/ youtuber ever?
>Hickok45. An American hero.
>Don't disrepect the two litre.
>mmm, I do love some cream in my coffee
>but sometimes I like it straight from the source so why don't you come here and let me lick your faucet for a bit I promise it will be worth it for you
I about shit my pants when I saw that recent video of him with an M60 in Texas or some shit.
How was he that oblivious about the operation of a belt fed gun? He had owned a fucking UZI for some time and couldn't grasp the concept of an open bolt. I don't know how many times I said "no, you don't do that" or "no, you're doing it wrong" while watching that video.
Fuck meant to post pic related
That's the batshit thing about him. first day using it and he a)disassembles and reassembles a gun he's never touched, b) figures out how it works c) puts down suppressing fire like he's a goddamn DeltaRangerSealmando.
He does this over and over again. picks up a crazy gun he's never seen and ding ding ding at 80 yards. He's a fucking savant
salty /pol/ users and slavboos are still upset he gave the Tavor a couple seconds of screen time at the end of his Kalashnikov tribute video. If it were any other gun they wouldn't care, but because DA JOOS were somehow involved it's the worst thing ever done in the gun community.
That is literally the only argument against the guy.
>Not sure why you guys are so adamant about defending a known wife beater and alcoholic
This is /k/ idiot, we're all alcoholic and would beat our wives if we could find women desperate enough to marry us.
I remember someone posting he lost a job in law enforcement because he hit his wife once decades ago so who knows.
I have no idea where the alcoholic thing comes from. I think it;s all just a case of jealous edgemasters hating the popular kids and spreading lies.
While I have never and hope I never do raise a hand to a women. I can say after 13 years of marriage the thought has done more than just cross my mind a few times and I love my completely.
