Do you REALLY care to get into detailed discussion about firearms law with someone that DOES study firearms laws as hobby AND because I have to?
Not one bit of twisting of anything. You are just wrong about the federal statute.

The statute does not mention handguns, specifically. It does state explicitly that any firearm OTHER than a shotgun or rifle can only be sold to someone 21 or over by a FFL. "Other than a shotgun or rifle" includes handguns, does it not?

The entire statute has no other age provisions in the entire text. That makes it very clear to me that the matter of private transfers are regulated at the discretion of the state.

The best thing to do is call your local state/county government and find out straight from them.

I believe stalkingbear has good advice. Err always to the stricter rule. Do the research yourself and you'll find the straight forward answer.

Mark Robert also has a good point in that you can contact the local LEO. They will not steer you wrong.

Trying to find loopholes will ultimately get you in trouble. My advice would be to wait until you are 21 years of age, take a class or two for safety, then get your permit.

FEDERAL law does not regulate a sale by a private citizen to another private citizen- it does regulate the actions of licensed dealers, collectors, etc. YES, some states allow possession by persons under the age of 21. As the man said, check your state law.

Alabama CCW is possible. I have a CCW permit in Madison County (Huntsville) and have had it for a while now. Alabama does it by county, and lets each decide, which is REALLY odd. My CCW has reciprocity with several states, including our neighboring states.

Are you carrying because you want to or because you need to? Want isn't enough justification. Being a waiter handling $$ may not be significant enough for your money justification (you can offload $$ to the back or other main registers like at the bar).

I didn't have to have any classes with the sheriff or NRA to get mine, which I felt REALLY odd. But that doesn't mean I haven't had training.

"Want" is a perfectly fine reason to carry. As far as I'm concerned, you don't need a reason to exercise a right.

Training is a good thing, but should, IMO, not be required for a person to be able to carry.

I have researched it...and emailed from the Sheriff's page on the main website of the guy who apparantly handle permits...not sure but I think so.

He told me no exceptions have to be 21 and such.

Although I did get a confirmation on other counties allowing CCW at 18.

Either way I'll look into it more...most likely I won't have to care in a couple of years anyway.


But I deal with cash that never moves or goes to the back as that is the policy of the restaurant...I'm no waiter I'm a cashier.

It's a serve yourself...meaning you order up front and pay first...then you get your food....(actually works better this way since no one gets a free meal)

I don't want to be stuck where I have nothing to defend myself with from an attacker or robber. I want to be able to take down the badguy before he takes ME out.

As my friend Burt Gummer from Tremors once said, "When you need it....and don't have it....you sing a different tune."



But it looks like for now I won't be carrying. Unless I find something that states I can in black and white.

hey Glock30Owner if you can't buy a handgun at 18 how can you open carry it.
