Passing of Tom Knapp.

Recommended Posts

I just heard that Tom Knapp, world record exhibition shooter and hunting advocate passed away a few days ago. I watched many hours of his clips on Shooting USA, Benelli's show, new Mossberg shows, etc. Seemed like a great guy and advocate of the shooting sports. Prayers to his family and close friends. A true loss to the shooting and hunting community.

In addition to being a top shooter, he was an outstanding showman and a true gentleman. He always hung around to sign stuff for the kids and talk to the regular folks. I had the privilege of seeing him three years running at the local DU Greenwing Day festivities.Knapp-Tallahassee05165_zps4637c336.jpg~originalKnapp-Tallahassee05184_zps53980cd6.jpg~original
