NOTE FROM BECKY MUNDEN
I wish to express my gratitude for all of the good wishes I have received from fans from everywhere in letters, by phone, on our website; YouTube channel and on Facebook since losing Bob December 10, 2012. It is extremely comforting and heart warming.

MAY/JUNE 2014 edition of American Handgunner features article titled, “Fast Draw Legend Bob Munden Passes”
The Fastest Man Who Ever Lived
By Dave Lauck
Check out the August, 2014 edition of Guns Magazine to read “The Fastest Gun Who Ever Lived” by Campfire Tales columnist John Taffin.
Available in print and the online edition: http://fmgpublications.ipaperus.com/FMGPublications/GUNS/GUNS0814/?page=90
In the two-page article Taffin praises not only Bob’s shooting abilities, but his Six-Gun Magic custom gunsmithing, now performed by Jeff Ault, who learned in person from Bob. www.facebook.com/sixgunmagic • http://www.bobmunden.com/custom-gunsmithing/
Taffin also mentions the DVD Bob Munden: Outrageous Shooting, which is also available directly from Becky at www.bobmunden.com/shop – but was not aware that we are completing two other films we were already working on with Bob before we lost him.
Enjoy this in-depth article by the famous gunwriter John Taffin.

FOR SALE THROUGH MUNDEN ENTERPRISES
Very lightly used (if at all ) Ruger Bisley Blackhawk 7 1/2 ” in .45 Colt with an Option #1 Six-Gun Magic action package by Bob Munden in 1999. This gun is minty and was brought to us by a local Butte resident who has many guns Bob built for him. This Bisley includes a Belt Mountain base pin. The gun comes with signed description of Bob’s work. No other paperwork and no box. Price: $800 plus shipping. If interested, please call Munden Enterprises at 406-494-2833
Ready to go — Open Top Cimarron .38 Special
Cimarron’s “Man with No Name” open top .38 Special with our option #1 action job ready to go!
This gun was delivered direct from our distributor with the plain grips, not the silver snake style.
I set it up for C.A.S and it’s ready to shoot with a fine, smooth action and a light, crisp trigger pull.
There are no external modifications other than a small, rear sight mounted at the rear of the barrel and a loading gate. There is no external ejector rod housing on these models. There is a small rod built into the ram rod lever itself to aide in the ejection of the .38 special cases.
These guns have the look and feel of the Colt ’51 Navy but shoot the .38 special. These are fantastic guns!
Price: $900.00 delivered to your FFL. Includes factory box and paperwork.

SHOOTING TIMES MAGAZINE POLL: BEST EXHIBITION SHOOTER OF ALL TIME
Shooting Times Magazine online posted an article and launched voting for the Best Exhibition Shooter of All Time. Becky Munden was not included on the list, which would have been a great disappointment to Bob, and is to Becky’s fans; however Bob has received the most votes so far.
Because several Bob Munden fans contacted us asking when the voting was going to close, we reached out to Shooting Times to ask when they planned to wrap up the voting.

CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE AND TIMES OF BOB MUNDEN & 70 SHOT SIX-GUN SALUTE TO THE FASTEST MAN WITH A GUN WHO EVER LIVED
Enjoy images (click on a photo to see its caption) of the Celebration of the Life and Times of Bob Munden dinner that took place June 15th and the 70 Shot Six-gun Salute was held at the Butte Gun Club June 16th, 2013. Bob would have had a big smile on his face and given the weekend two thumbs up. Finally, we will be looking over the video footage from that weekend to see what we’ve got, and will add images to the photo gallery as well as soon as we can.

DID YOU CATCH IT?
Bob Featured on a Jeopardy
The contestant got it right: Fastest Gun Who Ever Lived. Actually, it was the Guinness Book of World Records (Now Guinness World Records) that bestowed that title on Bob.
BOB & BECKY INDUCTED INTO THE SASS HALL OF FAME
In December, 2008, Bob & Becky Munden were inducted into the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) Hall of Fame during the annual SASS Convention in Las Vegas. Bad Bob #118 and Montana Belle #119 were honored to receive an impressive bronze statue of a gunfighter. As part of the ceremony, a 5-minute audio-visual presentation outlined Bob and Becky’s 27 years of participation, sponsorship and contributions to the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. Becky Munden said, “We were very impressed with the whole induction ceremony and extremely proud of this honor.”
BOB MUNDEN’S GOLDEN COLT SINGLE ACTIONS DISPLAYED AT THE NRA MUSEUM
Due to popular demand, Bob’s golden, engraved, Colt .45 single-action revolvers, and custom Galco double holster (of Bob Munden’s design) that he often used in his shows, and when exhibition shooting on television or during live performances, were featured at the Guns West exhibit in 2008 and ’09 at the NRA’s National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
SEARCHING FOR FOOTAGE, PHOTOS & REMEMBRANCES
Bob and Becky Munden performed all over the nation and in several countries beginning in 1968. Bob was performing solo before that. Becky and daughters are looking for film or video footage shot by fellow competitors, audience members or free-lance photographers. Do you have footage or photos from one of Bob and Becky’s stage shows or live-ammunition exhibitions, Fast-Draw, Bianchi Cup, Steel Challenge, Bob and Becky’s practical pistol shooting tournaments in Montana; performances before the general public — or shooting tournaments all the way back to the days when Bob, as a teenager, shot in Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper’s Leatherslaps in the 1950s? Did you meet Bob and Becky? Do you have stories?
Please contact Munden Enterprises if you have memories to share. Thank you!
