    A 18yr old kid I work with is planing on going out and getting himself a subcompact xd 40 here very soon. any advice on what i could say to talk him out of doing this?

    Im not talking about because of the gun. but the fact that hes only 18.

    just shut up and mind your own business. if he's blabbing about it at work, he'll fuck himself soon enough without your intervention.

    Mind your own business, you warned him, thats plenty. Perhaps he'll decide to buy a handgun from a prviate party which would be legal.

    normally yes. but this is something imo he needs to be involved with. He will go to jail for 2 years for an illegal gun (atleast here in ky)

    Unless you know he is going to go shoot someone with it why do you really care? If he only kept it at home or took it to a range I don't really see him getting caught with it.

    stupid kids, tell him it is illegal and that he ran his mouth around he will get caught. tell his brother he is doing something stupid and he will go to jail for it. let him know it is both illegal for him to own and for the person to buy it for him.

    people get caught with guns they are not suppose to have all the time. for example felons who are suppose to own guns get caught with them and they get fucked.

    but really when it comes down to it who gives a fuck about him. as long as you are not in tha shit storm.

    I dont understand how people get caught with guns and the such, why would a cop just randomly search somebody?

    I normally give shit to people that do this online, but who really gives a fuck? Unless hes going to do something bad for it, who fucking cares? 21 to buy from a dealer is bullshit anyways.

    I don't really care what he does, but, I wouldn't want to be the guy that buys it for him.

    Along with mind your own biznass, keep in mind he is 18, he should know better now, and he should know the severities of his actions when owning a gun. Lastly, the guy that buys it for him should know better as well.

    In most states you can legally own a handgun at 18 so who gives a shit, mind your own buisness.

    You can't buy one from a liscensed firearm dealer, but you can buy one from a private seller.

    Is the friend buying it FOR him, or is the friend buying it, then the kid is buying it from the friend?

    It's fine as long as it's a parent. Hell, My dad took delivery of my Mini-14 when I bought at the ripe old age of 16, and my Colt Detective Special when I was 17 or 18. Now that I think about it, they are still in his name :o

    Common misconception. If it is actually a gift, it is fine. If you are paying back your parents, it is a straw purchase.
