I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.
He is a freak for speed. Still holds most of the records.

wow...a little arrogant, but fast

I gave a vintage Silver .50Cent piece that Bob shot out of the air to my Bro.
He is an amazing marksman.
In case anybody is interested...he duplicated the famous shooting feat of shooting a bullet THROUGH the hole of a steel washer tossed into the air. On his first shot he nicked the edge of the hole but, he did it the second time that he attempted it.
The hole was not much larger than the diameter of the bullet that sailed through it and the bullet WAS caught on camera going through the hole.
He said he was using blanks, right? So he was just using the muzzle blast to take out the targets? Wouldn't that mean he wouldn't have to aim, but just be point it in the general direction of the target?
It's still fast, but shooting fast accurately is a lot more impressive to me.
Part of it may be his attitude. He is cocky and he sounds like an idiot. His hand is no where near the fastest thing on earth. How about snapping your fingers or cracking a whip?
When a human can exceed the sound barrier with his draw, well, that will be impressive.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
Who is John Galt?
Bob Munden is in reality a really nice guy. I have talked with him on the phone.
He is a showman and his puffed up personality is part of his showmanship persona.
He DOES talk alot though. He put a dent in my phone bill back then also.
He really is the all time world record holder at fast draw.
Nobody has ever beat any of his fast draw times.
His Wife is a pretty amazing shot also.
And No he does not always use blanks.
I don't know why he was using blanks for that Vid but, probably due to the location.
He also builds custom fast draw guns.
He wasn't using blanks when threw an aspirin in the air and shot it with his revolver. He's good with a lever action rifle and a double barrel shotgun too.

He's a trip! He silly accurate even now, years after that was filmed. His demeaner is all show and it's worked rather well for him and his heirs.
If you can back up what you say it's not arrogance.
Crazy fast, don't care what anyone says...

I could take him, but don't want to steal his moment of glory!!

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Got to see him in person back in the mid-90's. Just amazing.
