I was wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge of auctioning rifles for charity?
My niece was recently diagnosed with leukaemia and her dad is a keen rifle shooter. Due to her illness and reduction in working hours to look after her the family are under some financial pressure and he is unfortunately in the position of needing to raise funds to pay the bills. He may be selling his remy 700 243win and an anschuz 1422 thumb hole.
My first question is can these be sold as charity auction? Or is this frowned upon?
where would we be able to do this? Online or physically?
I was thinking that 50% would go to the family and the other 50% to candlelighters of all proceeds raised.

All advice would be greatly appreciated!
