Default A legend has passed ...

Just found out that Bob Munden has died. He was a great fast-draw shooter and a fierce competitor. I'm sure most of you have either heard of him or have seen various videos of his fast draw. Besides being fast, he was known to be very accurate as well.

More information about his life and death can be found at http://www.bobmunden.com/

We'll miss you Bob.

I could never make up my mind if I was impressed or annoyed with how impressed he was with himself

Not many men can be a legend in their own lifetime, RIP great man.

RIP Bob.

I actually had never heard of him until seeing that episode of Superhumans, so I looked him up after the episode. I was literally in awe, he was an insanely skilled shooter.

Yep. Amazing talent is trumped (for me) by a lack of humility.

I probably saw him on Wide World of Sports back in the day, but don't remember it. I just found that video of him this past year. He WAS fast...

Yeah, I agree; but an amazing shooter. Some of his antics on Impossible Shots were just, well, heck, impossible. Upside down, long distance with a snub nose revolver, etc.

RIP Bob.

Oh I hate reading posts like this..
I loved watching Impossible Shots and Bob was my favorite shooter. What a loss. The world just got a little darker.
