    Thought some of you may want to check this out...not only racing and sports memorabilia, but also a colt handgun, and colt rifles. For a good cause!

    Some things are up, with more to come as the days go on.

    Firearms are ok on ebay when its a charity, but aren't allowed to be sold by us "regular people" on a regular basis (or hulls, barrels, choke tubes, magazines, trigger parts, ect. Pretty much the only firearm parts allowed anymore are stocks and misc springs and pins). LOL

    While its a nice sentiment, I doubt its really necessary for the family when Mr Wheldon was worth an estimated 10m GBP (or about 16 million US).

    I was aware of the fact that the only time firearms could be sold on ebay is for charity purpose.

    Not aware of Dan Wheldon's net worth at death. Regardless of his net worth, this will be a trust for his children who are both very young.

    Just passing along the information to fellow shooters who may be enthusiasts or collectors of any of the things they are selling, wasn't looking for criticism.
