    I want a Taurus 608 .357 with a 6" barrel.

    I am 23 years old and was wanting to go to some gun shows and see if there was anything else I would be interested in there. Now I am a very responsable normal looking individual with a completely clean record but I am worried that someone may not sell to be because I am kinda young. Has anyone else ever ran into this?

    Also I was looking online and Buds Gun Shop has some excellent prices on guns. Has anyone ever bought from them? Thanks!

    as long as you pass a background check you can buy a gun at a gun show.

    also, if you buy from a private party some people are picky when it comes to selling to private persons but as long as you are of age and presentable in appearance there should be no issues

    they want to sell the guns more than they are concerned with your age/appearance. Just have valid ID, and you're GTG. Post pics when you get it!

    I'm 23, and have purchased several firearms without a hiccup...


    and I live in the bay area...




    don't dress like an urban youth, and be mature when dealing with them, and you'll be fine...

    go in with your pants around your ankles, a shirt 5 sizes too big, and a sideways baseball cap with the the price tag still on it, and ask to look at the gat, then hold it sideways while showin off your grill, and you may have an issue

    I fail to see the problem with this in general, not just in buying a gat :hsugh:

    This reminds me of the time that I saw this short vietnamese dude of Vietnam fighting age looking at an SKS at a Vietnam Vets booth at our gun show. They gave each other some funny looks. That old VC lookin guy looked like he was familiar with the SKS. That was kinda funny.
