You know what time it is: Ballistic pumpkin carving compilation (VIDEOS)

Every year about this time the interwebs teem with clips of jack-o-lantern carving performed by various firearm aficionados with varying degrees of skill. Here are some of the best we found this week.

Of course, Hickok45, who long ago became the Jedi master of pumpkin bashing via lead poisoning (this is his 9th), has a great video this year– sporting the always popular Glock 19.

Smith and Wesson got into the groove this year via a .44.

….And a Performance Center 460XVR, which just seems like overkill.

Thompson Center got in on the action with a TC Encore Pro Hunter.

Incidentally, if you want to carve your own (*using a Smith & Wesson, Performance Center, or Thompson/Center firearm) Smith is running a video contest through the 24th with the winners to receive a gift bag.

And we close this week’s installment with the fastest way to “carve” a pumpkin all the way via a slug from a Mossberg Shockwave.
