I wish Tom Knapp had incorporated bicycle riding into his trick shooting routines before he shuffled off this mortal coil. I guess there’s a limit to what Benelli would want their reps to demonstrate to potential buyers (I love that bit about learning those upside down behind the back shots “under professional guidance”). Still, Knapp and Benelli were a match made in Heaven. Let’s hope it continues.

Crazy... considering he just recently announced retirement from his final exhibition shooter gig, post-Benelli/Franchi/Beretta, at Cz:

Well, be well Tom, and say hello to Bob Munden for us!

Who may 'fill' the void??

Jerry Miculek, perhaps?

He can certainly match; while he may be able to, he's not a 'trick shooter' per-se; his professional focus has always been in competition shooting,

But, who knows...perhaps after he's done competing??

the thread's one of those 'extra kinda cool' related...

well, for any gunnies who maybe interested in it...

sad to see Knapp go. he's one of the last generation of truly talented exhibition shooters.

Jerry Miculek is another who can match, who's still around. But, while he may be able to, he's not a 'trick shooter' per-se; his professional focus has always been in competition shooting, re-revolutionizing revolver shooting,
