    You're talking about Bob Munden, and yes, the guy is amazing. I had the opportunity to see him in person about 13 years ago and was totally in awe at his speed. Here's a few of his records, and a link to his site. Y'all should take a look, the guy is unreal.


    Walk and Draw Level Event: Fastest Time Ever Recorded: .15 hundredths of one second - Arcadia, CA 06/04/1972.

    Standing Reaction Balloon Event: Fastest Time Ever Recorded: .16 hundredths of one second - Norwalk, CA 01/21/1973.

    Total of Five Separate Shots, Standing Reaction Balloons: 1 and .06 hundredths of one second - Arizona State Championships, 1966.

    Self-Start: Fastest Time: .0175 hundredths of one second - Guinness Book of World Records Museum, New York, 1976. This time is less than one half, of one half, of one tenth, of one second. Bob has been recognized by the Guinness Book as: "Fastest Gun" "Quickest Draw" and "The Fastest Man With A Gun Ever Alive."

    I've had the opportunity to meet both Bob Munden and Jerry Miculek and let me say without prejudice or intended insult. They are both "Freaks of Nature."

    Munden's record of .0175 hundredths of a second is over 6 times faster than you can blink your eye. I've read that it takes .12 to blink.

    He has to draw a single action colt, cock the hammer and hit a target 8 feet away. And he does it 6 times faster than an eye blink.
    I have also seen him fire 6 shots out of a Single Action Army faster than it can be done with a 1911.
    Heroes are people who do what has to be done, when it has to be done, regardless of the consequences
