“Fastest Man With a Gun,” Bob Munden, to Perform at National Hunting and Fishing Days Celebration September 27-28 at Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park
The fastest man with a gun who ever lived is coming to town. Bob Munden, who has held all 18 world records in speed shooting since 1960, will perform at the 2003 National Hunting and Fishing Days Celebration September 27 and 28 at Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park near Weston in Lewis County .
His fast-drawing abilities have astounded audiences world wide. Munden's fastest time, officially recorded in New York by Guinness Book of World Records representatives, is a one and three-quarters one hundredths of a second…which is less than one half of one half of one tenth of one second. Amazing? Yes, especially when you consider that it takes approximately 15 hundredths of a second for a person to blink his eyes. Munden has long confounded neurological experts.
Munden and his wife Becky, who has been listed in the Guinness Book herself with a fast draw record for women, have been seen on national television programs such as “Good Morning America,” “CNN News,” and “Ripley's Believe it or Not!” He currently is a featured exhibition shooter on the weekly television show, “The American Shooter,” on OLN.
Munden is adept at shooting all kinds of guns with live ammunition, and he does things like splitting playing cards in mid-air with a handgun. But for safety's sake, he uses blanks during his stage shows. The unburned powder which comes out of the blanks is what breaks the balloon targets used for each performance. And he moves so fast, it looks as if the gun never left the holster.
The Mundens, who live in Montana when not on tour, support the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting, a family sport involving sing action revolvers, lever action rifles, and double barrel or pump shotguns with live ammunition. Bob and Becky are the official ambassadors-at-large for the Single Action Shooting Society.
The National Hunting and Fishing Days Celebration is sponsored by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and the West Virginia Wildlife Federation. More than 100 vendors and exhibits will be available. The public is invited to enjoy archery, youth competition, good food, sport dogs, care and cooking of fish and game, shotgun and black powder shooting, and many more activities and door prizes. Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for children under age 15, and children 3 and under free. For more information call (304) 558-2771.
