The world lost a legend five years ago. On December 10, 2012, Bob Munden was driving home to Butte, Montana with his wife when he started feeling chest pains. Miles away from a hospital, Bob told his wife to keep driving. He passed away a few minutes later.
Bob could draw and shoot in 0.15 seconds. If you want to know how fast that is, just try and start a stop watch and stop it that quickly. We’ll wait.
There’s a reason Bob was called the “fastest gun of all time.” He was listed as the “World’s Fastest Gun” by the Guinness Book of World Records until 1980 when they stopped publishing that particular record so the book could be approved as a reference source for public school libraries.
Many of Bob’s critics argue that his older records are not well-documented enough by older analog-timers.
In an episode of Stan Lee’s Superhumans, Bob proved that his hand was capable of withstanding 10Gs of force during a quick draw at the age of 68. In that episode he was seen shooting two balloons eight feet apart in less than 0.10 seconds.
Take a minute to remember Bob with the video below.
