Who Says AKs Aren’t Accurate?


Have you every cut yourself carving a pumpkin? It’s not hard to do. Sharp knife. Thick, squash-like flesh. Kid hanging on your arm trying to see what you’re doing. But like Ford, hickock45 has a better idea. Get out into the fresh air and combine jack-o-lantern birthing with a shooting lesson. Maybe you won’t want junior working on the front porch version. Probably best to get the tyke a gourd of his or her own to practice on while you do the detail work. So don’t risk a digit this year. Take the safer approach and sculpt that spooky face with a magazine full of  7.62 x 39.

    Don’t suppose you’ll be breaking out the AR for detail work?

    Hehe, fun. I think mine would look a little more raggedy.

    With an AR you could do this at a distance greater than 15 feet.

    before you try this at home, remove the back of the gourd and the contents. otherwise you will end up with not with a jack-o-lantern but with pie filling. just a PSA for people with witchy trigger fingers.

    i don’t think hickok45 was doing this video to test accuracy at all. He has way more than one video of pumpkin destruction. This is a guy who shoots G27’s and other small ass pistols at amazing distances, regularly. I knew this post would bring out the AR myopia though.

      True. I’m fairly certain I’ve seen him accurately hitting targets a good 150 yards away with a pistol on more than one occasion.

    Psshh… I’ll be really impressed when he does this with a .17 HMR 🙂

    The average AK shooter is to hickock45 what a sandlot pitcher is to Roy Halliday.

    Always loved hickock45’s videos.

    What a waste of a good pumpkin. Damn, that thing could have been turned into a great pie.

    Most of the time it is a software problem, not a hardware problem.

    If you are feeling adventurous, add some tannerite.
