When I last talked with him a few weeks ago, he was selling his items when he could as time permitted.

Oh man, I just went to check out the website and see what he had in the deal section.
Very sad to see it go down, I'll miss browsing the site and dealing with Bob, it was very special.

Same here. I have purchased several NVA stuff from Bob around 3 years ago. I wanted to purchase more NVA stuff from him but figured out that his website is now closed. And I found this thread on the wehrmacht-awards.com, saying that Bob closed his business 1 year ago! I was really shocked (I am still shocked) when I read the news. It is really sad to see that Gowen Militaria is now closed for good. I will miss Bob and Gowen Militaria.

Hello all - as a follow up. I talked with Bob today and he let me know that he had some phone issues he just finished working through. All good to get a hold of him.
