    If your buying from a private party? I want to either buy a handgun or assault rifle but in Florida you have to be 21 to buy them from a retailer. If I buy from a private party can i get them as long as I'm at least 18?(i'm 19 btw)

    How about calling it just a rifle :dunno:

    For Example:

    I bought an AR15 Rifle. In 3 months I am buying an AK47 rifle...

    see how well that works.

    You only have to be 18 to buy an "assault rifle" or any other kind of long gun, even from an FFL. And, :noes: you get to take it home the same day!:run:

    Pretty sure it's only 18 for a FTF for a handgun as well.

    In MN you need a permit to buy a handgun or "assault" rifle, like an AK or AR15. The problem is, you have to be 21 to get that permit. So in MN its 21 all around. Now if its just a regular old hunting rifle or shotgun, then its 18.

    Ghey huh?

    Well... yeah. Essentially. But because AR's and AK's and others look just like the automatic actual military assault rifles the liberals in government and media call them all as such. Regardless of the fact that civilian "assault" rifles are still only single shot semi-autos.

    assault rifle is just a term that legislators use to make a gun sound more dangerous. For a while assault rifle just meant a rifle with a magazine, pistol grip, etc. Your average person doesn't understand what semi auto means when they try to ban "assault rifles" everyone thinks they just banning M60s.

    in LA (and i think in FL too), you can buy any firearm from a private party at 18.

    from a retailer, it's long guns at 18 and handguns at 21.

    assault rifles are a small breed of genetically engineered guns, which create an inanimate and animate object hybrid, by infusing the genes for a snakes tail, lions legs, and human arms, along with genes commonly associated with serial killers and psychopaths, to create guns that can walk, talk, and kill small women and children without an actual operator.

    If they're shipping it then it has to go to an FFL, which you'll need to be 21 to get it from them. FTF means face to face.

    So even if I don't buy it from the FFL directly, and I use them only to transfer the gun over to me, I still have to be 21? Couldn't I have my dad pick it up and then have him give it to me as a private party deal?

    You could, but if he's buying it with your money that's a straw purchase which is illegal. It shouldn't be that hard to find a local guy that's willing to do a FTF.:dunno:
