Often regarded as the finest ambassador that American shooting sports has ever known, Tom Knapp, thrilled crowds around the world with seemingly impossible feats with a shotgun. On April 26, our friend and Champion® spokesman Tom Knapp passed away. He was 62 years old.
Tom held three world records, including 10 handtossed clays broken with 10 shots from his shotgun. With TV appearances and more than 100 live shows a year in the United States and Europe, he delighted countless shooters with expert marksmanship and fun-filled personality. Tom began performing for the public in 1987 and entertained audiences as large as 8000 spectators at a single performance. He performed throughout Europe and the Mid-East covering as many as 14 countries in four months! A Tribute to Tom
