Bob Munden Display

Many of you know who Bob Munden was even if you don’t know his name. His videos showing him draw a six-shooter from a holster and hitting two balloons are infamous. Frankly, those videos should be mandatory watching for EVERY new police academy cadet.

Bob was a 1911 shooter as well.

If any of you are looking to pick up a trade, setting up a boutique revolver shop might be long term job security.

And the list of smiths who actually are good at servicing them is dwindling fast!
