A man with a YouTube channel dedicated to firearms has a new video showing an unusual way to carve a pumpkin.

The man, who goes by “hickok45” on YouTube, said carving a pumpkin with a knife is unsafe and using a rifle is the proper way to do it.

“Word has it that people are still using dangerous, sharp knives to do this. As I always have to point out for some folks, this is not a marksmanship exhibition; it’s just the proper way to carve a pumpkin,” part of the YouTube video description says.

The video, which was uploaded Friday, already has more than 1.2 million views.
