Look for a site that has state statutes. Most state sites will direct to them. A little reading and you will have your answer. Also BATF has federal laws listed.

A straw puchase is not having your mother buy it from an FFL to give it to you as long as you are not restricted from firearms.If you were a felon and she did that-yes,straw purchase,if you were only 17 and lived in your own apartment away from her and she did that-yes,straw purchase,or if your state requires it to be registered to one person and she registered it to herself and gave it to you-then yes,straw purchase,or if you hand her the cash beforehand to go into the store,then that can also be considered a straw purchase.If she buys the gun with her own money and then you buy it from her,that is perfectly legal.

Different states, and even different cities/counties, handle these issues differently. To the OP: Go down you your local PD and ask them what's legal.

I'm over 18, so legal to own a handgun, but under 21, so not old enough to purchase from an FFL. My dad has purchased both my guns and transferred them to me as gifts, which is a provision of Michigan law. I paid him back for part of the Ruger and most of the M&P, but they were still my birthday and Christmas gifts, respectively.

The FTF flunked itís Bar exam.

With that fully understood, here is some research:

Section 571-060 Unlawful transfer of weapons, penalty.

Missouri Revised Statutes

Weapons Offenses
Section 571.060

(3) Recklessly, as defined in section 562.016, RSMo, sells, leases, loans, gives away or delivers a firearm or ammunition for a firearm to a person who is intoxicated.

Bottom line do your homework. The choice you make today may impact your ability to own/buy firearms in the future. Good luck

Just play it safe. Waiting a couple more years will certainly be worth an entire lifetime of "legal" firearms related pleasure and enjoyment.
