Same at Walmarts here in Michigan too-"is this for a handgun or rifle?"And I am 30 and look it.I usually just said handgun,but really my answer is "both" since I have a rifle in .22 also.

Winds, Jake- please read what I posted. That is the FEDERAL law which applies everywhere in the US. That is also the law that a DEALER is licensed under. If a DEALER (including WalMart) gets caught selling any ammo to a 16 yr old, the BATFE will take their license in a heartbeat. No geography to it.

The handgun law is a federal law, not state.

I remember buying .45 acp, 9mm and 22 when I was 18. Of course that was for my Thompson, Uzi & 10-22. So far as I know the law in AZ hasn't changed

and you may also buy a handgun from a private individual at 18.
