Early years

Greg Kinman is a retired English teacher and former policeman from Tennessee.

Since  2007, when he opened his channel he and his son uploaded more than 1,200 videos.

Career Development

The channel was originally released in     January, 2007 and it still exists and works.

Since  2007, when he opened his channel he and his son uploaded more than 1,200 videos.

Their videos demonstrate various historic and modern firearms. The theme and themes and discussion on the videos are concerning the looks of the firearms, their history (especially of use) and the functionality of each firearm.

Some of his older videos showed him shooting from the weapons of Old West dressed as a cowboy. Those weapons were his first love.

His first video about guns wasn’t intended for an internet audience. Simce he was an English and literature teacher and his class had to read the novel “Shane” he tried to show them what it looked liked back in those times so he made a video on guns which were used on the West. He made the video himself and his students loved it. He senz his son John a copy because he was in college at that time.

His son John told him to post the video on YouTube so he did, although his opinion of YouTube wasn’t very high back then (he taught that people upload only stupid stuff they do).

After they saw that the video had a lot of views, they decided to do a few more and upload them on the platform.

They made a list of 20 gun groups to sort the weapons and help the viewer to manage.

They explained everything about the weapons, specifics of each firearm and gave instructions how to use them.

After a while he includded a greater variety of weapons but he always talked about safety and emphasized the importance of knowing how to handle a weapon and not jepardazing anyone’s safe.

Most of his videos feature only him but his son John was the one filming them and he appeared in them several times.

Their channel Hickok45 became very popular because of the use of props in them: Greg carved pumpkins, aimed and destroyed numerous watermelons and cut down saplings with a large number of different guns he presented.

In 2010, a famous TV host Jay Leno showed one of his videos, where he is carving a pumpkin, on his show “The Tonight Show” and it made his channel even more known then it was.

After violating YouTube’s terms of service, his channel was shut down twice but it was reinstated in a short while.

What is his secret of success? Hickok45 earned fame because of his humble personality and advices on guns that people trust.

Although it seems easy he has a lot to do before a video is actually filmed: he has to research, plan, prepair the range,  shoot and edit the  video before uploading and more.

He also responds to messages from followers who ask him for advice.

Personal life

There aren’t many informations about his private life and about his family. He included only his son in his videos.
