Tom Knapp

 “The Shooting Star” was the best-known shotgun exhibition shooter in recent history—perhaps ever. Tom held three world records: throwing nine clays in the air and shooting them individually before they hit the ground; throwing and hitting eight clay targets with a pump-action shotgun in 1.87 seconds; and in 2004, throwing and hitting 10 clay targets in the air in 2.2 seconds. Tom’s personality, showmanship, and amazing shooting ability made him a fan favorite.

“The Fastest Gun Who Ever Lived”, Munden’s speed and accuracy border on the supernatural.  At the opening of a Guinness Book of World Records promotion at the Empire State Building, Bob drew, cocked and fired his tuned single-action Colt in less than two-hundredths of a second. As a regular feature on the American Shooter television show, Bob became a household name to shooters who tuned in weekly to see him shoot aspirin tablets off nails, split thrown playing cards and make impossibly long-range shots with handguns. Bob held 18 world records in various fast-draw events.

Jerry’s list of championships and shooting accolades is far too extensive to mention, but he remains the man to beat in any competition he enters.

Surge in concealed weapon permits follows California court Second Amendment decision

Gun owners are flooding the sheriff’s offices in two California counties with applications for concealed weapon permits following a bombshell ruling two weeks ago by a federal appeals court that citizens need not justify their requests.

Orange and Ventura counties have dropped the “good cause” standard for issuing conceal carry permits after the requirement was struck down  Feb. 13 by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. A three-judge panel of the court ruled 2 to 1 that the Second Amendment bars California counties from requiring law-abiding gun owners who want to carry concealed firearms to demonstrate special, individualized needs for protection.
