    Hickcock used to be my sister so you guys stop picking on him.

    Over an hour.. It's hard not to say something stupid when you talk over an hour.

    Hell I couldn't get past one sentence.

    Over an hour? Not on my phone. Not on my plan.

    Please, someone post some hot chicks with guns.

    He also said repeatedly that he doesn't get paid by the NRA. Do you have something that disputes that?
    All you get when you try to point out how things actually work is name calling just like the left they cannot accept how things actually work and you're a no good prick for pointing it out. The NRA doesn't pay Hickock45 he's just another member that has been carrying the weight of freeloading gun owners and complainers for all these years.
    We now live in a lawless era where laws no longer apply to government officials.

    If you have watched Hickok long enough he's always been one of those "reasonable restrictions" types and that leaks out every so often. To be fair he has opposed lots of anti gun stuff, so I wouldn't throw the baby out with the bath water.

    Hickok is like Nutnfancy in that they got in early on YT and when gun content was lacking, they turned out content and built an audience. They both had their style and method for presenting videos but time and competition has caught up to them. I don't really have a big beef with either and I don't watch their vids like I used to but will check out an occasional one here and there. These days most of these guys are supported by Patreon, so as long as they get a few thousand throwing money in they can do pretty well.

    I took him as being very scientific and calculated in the few videos of him I watched. I imagine you'd have to enjoy that type of input to enjoy his videos. Kinda like if you enjoy documentaries or not. FWIW, his 1986 FBI Miami shootout video is excellent.

    I've watched all of Paul Harrell's videos. He proves his points with evidence instead on mere conjecture like most other channels.

    I have seen a few of Hickok's videos over the years and I don't mind the length... if I have the time. Thank you for the interpretation. He seems laid back on some of the ones I recall, but I dont remember him leaning in a "anti-gun" direction. He gets cool free stuff and cool loaners, but good for him for posting what he does. I consider him to be more of a positive influence in today's increasing (or at least the same number with louder voices!) anti-gun world.

    Would all the current antigun laws have passed or been allowed to stand if the NRA had not made them "less bad"?

    The Miami video was good, his ballistic videos are okay but have been done before with results in print as well as video from channels like shooting the bull. I do know Paul was in a real self defense shooting situation in his past where he killed another man so he does speak from experience with some things.

    Forgotten weapons, Inrange TV, Mr GunsNGear, John Lovell (warrior Poet), AKOU, LAV and sometimes MAC are usually what I watch and in pretty much in that order. I opted out of most of the big channels since very few of them offer much in the way of educated content.

    He said himself before he gets "support" from them. He also doesn't do speaking engagements at rallies or anywhere else unless he's paid. Usually it an NRA fundraiser or event he's at so they're the ones paying him there. I haven't ever contacted him, but I know others that have and he doesn't do anything unless someone is paying.

    This is what I'm wondering as well. What have they made better?
