    Depending on the state you can buy a gun from a private party. To walk in to a gun store and buy a gun you need to be 21

    Don't plan on carrying that gun if you live in the PRNJ.

    You can't buy a handgun yourself at 21. Your father can buy it and transfer it to you as a "gift."

    www.packing.org i know in my state you can buy handguns from private sellers at 18 but to buy from or through an FFL you must be 21. but check packing.org they might have info for where you live.

    word...

    just got about it the illegal way, save yourself alot of hassel, besides I am sure Abdule down at the 7-11 would love to sell you a gun, considering his wife is probably coming back with a fresh shipment on a cargo plain from hong kong filled with fake dog shit.

    At 18 you can buy rifles and shotguns. Hand guns you have to be 21. And in addtion for a ccw you need to be 21 as well
