    i'm only 19, but i really want to get a handgun. found a nice 1911 and wondered if there's any legal way for me to get it. could i give my dad money and have him buy it for me?

    hmmm now that i think about it my parents are really good friends of the owners of both stores i got mine from. but i think they would only restrict the sale if when they do the background check, that specific parent has like a custody situation where they arent always living with you. having your parents buy it should be fine.

    Check your laws. Most states you can't legally purchase one from an FFL until you are 21 but you can have one at 18. (guess some are 21. Probably that big great state on the west coast :ugh: )

    Just have you Dad get it and if you're ever asked about it in the future, then your Dad gave it to you as a gift.

    In LA you can have a handgun at 18. You just can't get a CCW until you're 21 but you can carry it loaded in your car. They also have an open carry law here but I'm not sure I want to test that out. lol

    in oregon you can own a sidearm at basically any age... but you can't BUY one. You can receive one as a GIFT, but you cannot exchange money/services for the gift... Basically unless your parents GIVE you one, it's called a 'straw' purchase, which lands both of you in prision.
