    There are so many good people in this world who I have never had the pleasure of meeting. Apparently he was on of those.

    I met and watched one of his benneli exabitions, back in the 90's in norco california, before I evacuated to a free state.
    He was amazing.
    He will be missed, God Bless Tom Knapp.

    The things he could do with a shotgun were absolutely amazing.

    Sad to see such an obvious gentleman and marksman pass on. Truly one of the great shooters of our time, and a little bit of history passes along with him. Prayers have been made for those he leaves behind.

    What a great loss to the shooting world. Many knew Tom as an exhibition shooter. He was so much more to the shooting sports though. I watched a Kansas pheasant hunt several years ago and Tom mentored and coached a young shooter on the fundamentals of safe gun handling and safe bird hunting. He was a great mentor.

    He was the first I saw make fruit salad with a Bennelli. Then he shot 7 clays, then 7 charcoal briquets, then 7 asprin tablets. He had an old VCR recorder (new and cool then) and played it back in slo mo. 7 shots-7 hits. He said he was working on adding baby asprin, but couldn't get them to travel far enough out to shoot. I will miss him. RIP

    There are quite a few Youtube vids showing him work, but here is a good sampling:
