Silvia Kennedy has been one of the Antique, Collectible and Modern Firearms specialist at Brunk Auctions in Asheville, North Carolina for over 16 years. Her love of the field started with a job at the Colt Manufacturing Company near her home in Connecticut. She learned about Colts there from the inside out, working for a number of years, eventually looking forward to an engravers position. It also led to her passion for shooting sports. In addition to handgun and long-range target shooting on a regular basis, Silvia is currently training for competition on the compound bow. She enjoys working with like-minded collectors and looks forward to every opportunity she has in her chosen field.
