It is being reported that he died this morning. RIP Bob.

Damn.

That's weird. I saw him on a magazine a couple days ago and thought, "I wonder what he's up to. Haven't seen his name in a long time"

wtf?

I certainly respect how fast and good he was with a pistol.

But,

He did not seem like a fun guy to hang out with. He seemed to have a very high opinion of himself that i would find off putting.

Tactless of me to speak ill of the recently departed.

I always enjoyed watching him on TV while I was growing up.

Negative comments about him I've made aside, he was a damn fine and fast shooter.

RIP Bob.

My sentiments exactly. He seemed like a pompous, self absorbed, indignant, egotistical jerk off.
All this based on my experience in watching him on TV. Theres no debating he was a hell of
a pistol shooter, and in the end I guess thats what I respect most about him. Anyone able to do
what he did with a gun obviously loved the sport/game of shooting and dedicated a large portion
of his life perfecting that art.

I'm smart enought to know that his TV persona is what he wanted portrayed and probably has little
bearing on the type of person he REALLY was. If it's true, then the world has lost a great shot.

What a shame.

His pistol skills were incredible. I loved watching what he could do.

He was a pretty good gunsmith too, right?
Link Posted: 12/11/2012 9:16:14 AM EDT
He was quite a character. RIP Bob

The only person faster than Bob Munden was Bob Munden. And the only way to verify this was to ask Bob Munden.
Link Posted: 12/11/2012 9:18:19 AM EDT
Damn. My dad took me and my brother to one of his shooting demo's when I was a kid. Watching him made me want to get a handgun.

I met him IRL. He seemed like a great guy to have a beer with. Sad that I didn't have the opportunity...

He was really good at tuning single action revolvers and he was one heck of a pistol shot and had a very fast draw.

Now he is with the other great gunmen... Skeeter Skelton, Jeff Cooper, Elmer Keith.. more names then I want remember.

RIP Bob Munden.

RIP Bob. I really enjoyed watching that man work/play. We may never see his equal.

I don't know if he was pompous or just confident, but he was good.

Same here. I would actually go to the range after watching and badly try to reproduce his trick shots that didn't involve quick draw.

I met Bob Munden in 1988 and again in 1991. Spent a couple of hours BSing with him the second time I met him. I found him to be a very pleasant guy and fun to talk to. He had some real good jokes and he shared a bunch with me over a soda. The first time I met him, he did seem to be somewhat stand offish. I watched more than one punk want to slap leather against him for real. I think that's why he was the way he was.

He'll be missed for sure. RIP Bob. Give Jerry Ahern my best when you see him.

Damn...the fastest man alive.

That sucks, and I always enjoyed watching him draw.

ETA: I have met a few people that were at the top of their game, and arrogance doesn't bother me when you can back it up. YMMV.

I for one will miss him

Sadly, I agree. I get tired of penis measuring pretty quick. Every interview I heard of him he could have just said "I think I am better than you." and I would have gotten the same thing from it.

I was wondering that too. There is nothing on his website or his Facebook page.

Arrogant asswipe, sorry to see him go.

RIP, Bob.
