http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_legal_age_in_Texas_to_buy_a_handgun

Quote
Texas has no laws regarding possession of handguns, shotguns, or rifles by persons 18 years or older without felony convictions; a rifle, shotgun, or other long-barreled firearm may be carried openly, however, a permit to carry is required for handguns (issued only to those 21 and older), and they must be concealed.

However, to PURCHASE a handgun, you must be 21 or older in every state, per federal law in order to purchase from a federally licensed dealer. You can, however, purchase a handgun at 18 in a private sale.


so i can buy a shotgun or a long barreled firearm legally, and i can only buy a handgun through a private sale? i'm still confused about the shotgun/rifle part.

FFD!!!

Having the choice is awesome yeah?!

A good source of info regarding laws in your state would be the NRA, of course.

Let me know if you want some recommendations.

Same in AZ
You can buy a rifle at 18, handgun at a store at 21
although you can purchase a handgun through private sales at 18, but you wouldn't be able to conceal it.

What's stupid about it?

If you try to rob a person or place in Texas, Oklahoma or a number of other states you should be aware that you could get a serious case of lead poisoning. I don't have to hope that the local law enforcement will show up in time to protect me or my family.

Have gun, will use it. big gun

Scary thing is there may be some real conflict in the near future, the Arctic Ice Cap is shrinking more and more every year and the area could be very rich with resources. Backed by Her Majesty's Armed Forces, I don't think messing with Canadian territory is a smart idea.

In michigan we can do this (without a license). 






Few do it in SE mich where Im at, but in the north where there are far less people and far more bears to contend with, people do it often. Ive thought about doing it myself, but I work in a somewhat urban area, and people who are ignorant of gun laws or have never been exposed to a gun are usually afraid of them.


We only need a license to conceal it. And driving a car with a pistol in reach of the driver is considered concealing. So in the end most people just get a CPL.

Just the opposite here (without a CPL) if it's in the car, it has to be in plain sight. In the seat, on the dash, somewhere in the open. Can't be in the glove box or under the seat, etc. But there is a loophole there as well. If you get pulled over and you have it in the glove box or somewhere hidden, if you tell the officer that you have it, it is no longer concealed. If you don't tell them and they find it, it is a crime.
