    (February 8, 1942-December 10, 2012)
    Born in Kansas City, Missouri
    Competitive and exhibition fast draw shooter
    Listed as quickest draw in the Guinness Book of Records (1980)
    Appeared on Ripley's Believe It or Not, the History Channel's 'Superhumans' and Shooting USA's 'Impossible Shots'
    Self-proclaimed 'The Fastest Gun Who Ever Lived'
    He has made plenty of dubious claims, such as that he once held every fast draw world record and that he won 3500 trophies (none of which he was able to produce when asked).
    The shot that he claims was the fastest ever (at 0.15 seconds to draw and fire) took place at an event organized by the International Fast Gun League -- a group established and run by Munden.
    Any records that he did have were officially 'retired' when fast draw converted from mechanical timers to more accurate digital ones.
    He shot himself with a blank in the left hand when he failed to notice his gun was cocked.
    He admitted to being 'an s.o.b' in competitions.
    Bob Arganbright, an official quick draw record holder, said, 'There is no man alive as good or as fast as Bob Munden tells you he is.'
    He could throw a playing card in the air and split it in two with a shot.
    He could fire a round, eject the casing, then fire and hit the casing before it hit the ground.
    All the old quick draw records were lost during the early 60s, so you cannot completely rule out the possibility that he once held them all.
    He was one of the few fast draw practitioners to make a living from it -- mostly by earning a couple thousand a pop to appear at car dealerships as a lure to draw crowds.
