    I want to see him on some super high speed cameras :eek:

    They do a couple slo-mo shots toward the end....


    Anyone else wouldn't want to be the camera operator between the two balloons? :noes:

    There was a pretty good SI article on him about how in spite of the fact he is incredibly fast that most of the records & competitive victories he claims are total BS.

    During the show, Bob, who holds 18 world records in
    speed shooting, or fast draw, shoots balloon targets about 8 feet away, which break when hit with unburned powder from the blank ammunition. His dramatic, double-balloon shot is so fast, it sounds like he fired only one shot.

    I watch Bob on Impossible Shots every Wednesday on the Outdoor Channel. He is awesome and hilarious. His wife is a pretty good shot as well.

    I love how all his single shots he talks about drawing, cocking, then firing, then holstering. However, on his double shots, he pulls a cocked pistol, then fires, and recocks and shoots again, but doesn't holster. Still retarded fast, but he isn't doing everything he does in his original shots yet acts like he does
