    I turned 21 for a year now and i am thinking about getting a hand gun for personal protection. i live in missouri, incase state laws are different. anyways i am kinda confused on what u need to legally own a handgun and be able to conseal it to protect me when i go out to places.

    i know i don't need anything to buy a rifle. i have been told i can buy a handgun i just need to register, but i will need a license to conseal it. i have been told i need a FFL but i did some reading and it talked about being a gun dealer is this the same thing as being a gun owner (not selling)?

    if anyone could give me a few pointers or what classes i need to take i would appreciate it.

    You'll probably need to take classes and apply to be able to get a CCW to conceal the weapon on you. To purchase the handgun you most probably will just have to fill out some forms when you buy it and do the waiting period if your state has one.

    Check out this place for info on getting a CCW: http://www.packing.org/

    Edit: Appears you need to be 23 in Missouri to have a CCW.
