Heh, Imma jump in here for a minute and hope everyone hasnt scared you off with the bare facts of the situation. What I have to add may not be very comforting but I hope its enligtning at the least. Im 20! I moved out about 3 months after my 18th b-day for the same reasons your talking about. BUT, I have learned so very very much about life, the world and my self in that time that there is no way for me to put it in words other then to say I 'grew up'. If you were to move out (which you should if that isnt obvious from other posters) you would gain a huge amount of respect for what your parents have done for you! You have but just begun to see what the world is like! Why would you worry about a gun when you need your own appartment and so so much more?

Life sucks but if you think its bad now buck-o,then tighten that helmet and get ready for the real deal!

My son is 22 and living at home. To be fair he recently completed four years in the USMC. All the same it's my house my rules, it's truly not an issue. My Son respects where he comes from and the family home we have. He wants his own place so it is his house and his rules but until he is able he and I live like minded with out issue. Respect where you come from, appreciate those that support you and when your able pay it back. Not in money but in respect.

I dropped out of college when I was 21. I felt so guilty about being at home, that I went into the military. It was the best thing I ever did. I finished my B.S. while I was in the military. I got out of the military 5 years later being debt free, married, with 1 kid. I found a good job and haven't borrowed a dime from my parents.

Being on my own in the military helped me grow up quickly. I didn't love it enough to want to stay, but it did kickstart my career.

I moved out and went to college at 17. I have not spent more than two nights in a row in my parents house since. My step-daughters (22 year old twins) decided that my rules were just stupid and they could disrespect me everytime they saw me. They not only do not live in my house now, they are not allowed in my house, PERIOD! They are in for a rude awakening come Thanksgiving/Christmas this year. Sucks to eat Swanson Turkey and Dressing for Thanksgiving and get NOTHING for Christmas. Brats!

Grow up, get a job and act like an adult. Freeloading will not earn you any brownie points, anywhere.

Damn. Looks like you guys handled this question without me. I live with my dad until I was 22, and I thank him for it each and every time I see him. The real world is hard. I hope Hogger experiences it soon. It will make or break him.

Knowing your taste in women, and hoping the apples didn't fall far from the tree, can I get their number in case they need something around the holidays??

Hogger - You need to get out on your own and EXPERIENCE this world. Military. Work. Join the Circus. Whatever. But get out there and see what the world really is all about.

I left home and went in the Air Force at 17 and never looked back. Retired at 37 with a pension and medical coverage for the rest of my life. Traveled all over the world and lived in a number of countries - saw things most Americans will never see.

Staying at home and carping about how your life sucks is doing you no good. Grow up and live life...

Parents' roof = Parents' rules!

During my 20s, I lived on and off again with my parents, and as long as I was living in their house, I abided by their rules. By the way, that would go for anyone's house I stay in.

If you are still living at home to save money towards your own place, then respect their wishes, keep your powder dry, and continue to save. Or perhaps it's time to move out, get your own place, and soon learn what it's like to live in the unsheltered real world. Your parents probably view a handgun purchase as a "luxury" item that you shouldn't be spending your money on at this time.

I was reminded by a similarly titled album by these youngsters. I had it on cassette tape.

Trivia: Will Smith aka The Fresh Prince turned down a free ride to MIT on a math scholarship to go into the "music" business. I can only imagine that convo with the 'rents.

The OP is strangely absent from the discussion
