R.I.P. Bob Munden and thank you for sharing your talent with the world.
Recognized by Guinness World Records as The Fastest Man with a Gun Who Ever Lived, Bob was on his way home from a Missoula hospital for what doctors described as a mild heart attack. He told his wife he was having some chest pain but told her to continue to drive home and died.
Bob was “faster than a rattlesnake.” In a demo during a episode of "Stan Lee's Superhumans, Munden draws and shoots two balloons six feet apart with two shots that sound virtually like one.

That's a cryin shame. Bob was a Master Handgunner ! Rest in Peace Bob; we're gonna miss ya !!
saw a clip where he shot a balloon @ 200 yds with a 38 snubbie ! and also shot an aspirin @ 20 paces !
What a shame. He must have fallen quickly. Just a few months ago he was still on the cable show "Impossible Shots" and recently he hasn't been on any new episodes.

He was a handgunner of the highest order.
I saw him perform in Vegas quite a few years ago. What a talent!!
That's sad. I saw several of his shots on "Impossible Shots" I want to try for fun.

I'd like to try them too but I know better.
Some ain't that hard if you get to keep trying till you hit it like they did on the show.

To bad, he is one of the few non-manufacture gun names I remember knowing when I was young.
