    I live in Florida and im looking to buy something to keep at home for safety reasons. I would like to have a handgun but im under 21. At the gun range, buddy said since im under 21 i wouldn't even be able to test out the handguns. I've also heard that i would be able to legally own a handgun while being under 21, if i purchase it of a private party. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I thought it was a federal law mandating the 21 minimum age to own a handgun. If you want something for HD, get a shotgun. They're cheaper and more effective.

    Keep the "rack the bitch and the intruder will shit themsleves" comment to yourselves... :squint:

    Oh well, can't be right all the time (although I am in my head)

    BTW, you want those mags?

    ok so 18+ to legally own a handgun from a private seller. Does this mean im allowed to keep the gun at home, or can i also keep it in my car? what about a concealed carry weapon permit ?

    Concealed permit is 21+

    You're fine to conceal it at home or on your property.
