Soldier of Fortune Magazine's Robert K. Brown
Soldier of Fortune Magazine’s – Robert K. Brown

Kalispell, Montana – -(AmmoLand.com)- Robert K. Brown, USAR (Ret.) has lived a life of incredible adventure. He served in Vietnam as a Green Beret, trained troops and fought communists alongside them in hotspots around the globe and has defended the Second Amendment via his long-held seat on the NRA Board of Directors. In 1975, Brown founded Soldier of Fortune Magazine.

Always willing to use the platforms he created to support his beliefs without the slightest regard for fallout sure to follow, Brown has been praised and damned in equal parts by those dumbstruck that such a person actually exists in today’s world.

Now 87, Brown has elected to part with many of his special firearms and memorabilia gathered over the years. Some of his firearms are rare or unique, others created especially for him and many feature his special “007” serial number.

These items will be auctioned on gunbroker.com beginning December 8th and close December 20th.

Sportsman’s Legacy, a firm specializing in the orderly monetization of fine and historic firearms, is presenting the items.

SOF Magazine had a great influence me throughout my career. When I was in the 1st Bn 19th SFGA the battalion HQ had a subscription to SOF under the nom de plume of Col. Biff Billings. Col. Brown is a true patriot and the fact that he is putting his personal collection up for auction so that other patriots can enjoy it speaks to the kind of man he is.

I met Col. Brown once. He spoke with me just like we were old friends. He is living history.

I can’t afford to buy any of those items myself, either. But it sure is cool to just look at them, even online. Some real special pieces. I love guns, but the framed WWII air combat prints really touched me. Inscribed by Pappy Boyington himself, those would be the kind of thing that I would love to own for a few years, and then donate to a museum that would appreciate them. Michigan, where I live, has a very nice military museum in Frankenmuth, which is small, but very much a patriotic place. I love those small, but sincere places… Read more »

Only 3 items bid on so far. One is the Ruger .22 pistol. Prices are more reasonable than I expected. Still beyond my wallet.
