Bulger's Beat: TN man carves pumpkins with pistols

Posted: Updated:
ASHLAND CITY, TN (WSMV) -

As Halloween approaches, many people across middle Tennessee have a nicely carved pumpkin sitting on their porch.

But it's a good bet most of those pumpkins did not get carved up by a pistol.

A gun, a gourd and good aim is all it takes for one Cheatham County man who believes nothing says Happy Halloween like a 40-caliber Glock pistol.

Greg, who goes by "Hickok45" in his internet demonstration videos, is a school teacher who finds relaxation from firearms. His property is set up with targets to challenge his expertise after 50 years of shooting.

"Just thought it would be interesting to carve a pumpkin with a handgun. It just seemed like a logical thing to do," he said.

He sets out to create a recognizable jack-o'-lantern.

"I usually do eyes and nose first," he said. "Just getting the mouth is a prime goal."

And he was shocked the first time it worked.

"I thought, 'hey, that's pretty cool.' It actually made a face," he said. "It's not hard, but it's not as easy as it appears, either, because one wrong shot or one flinch and you got a hole in the cheek instead of eyes," he said.

His Internet name "Hickok45" is a tip of the cap to Wild West folk hero Wild Bill Hickok. To view more of his videos on YouTube, visit: http://www.youtube.com/user/hickok45.
