    Bob passed away on Monday December 10th 2012. He died quietly next to his wife Becky. A Grand Titan in shooting sports is gone. A void that probably won't ever get filled again. Nobody loved guns and shooting more than he did. We'll miss him.

    Sad news. I first encountered Bob at Myrtle Beach SC when I was 16. He was shooting wax bullets (exhibition) at balloons and showing his quick draw skills. I must of watched for an hour. He was very kind to a pimply faced kid.

    RIP Mr. Munden.

    Sorry to hear that. He was one of the last and greatest of the exhibition shooters. It's a mix of firearm prowess and theatrics that used to be found at every county fair, but is almost entirely gone now. It was a uniquely American form of entertainment.

    Man that's terrible news. There will NEVER be another like him.
    When they made Bob, they threw the mold away.

    For every good piece of gun news, there is a piece of bad news.

    RIP Bob.
