Default mossberg pistol grip 21 or 18??

so after work today me and a couple co-workers went to the local sporting goods store and one of the guys is 20 and was looking at a Mossberg 500 12 that just has the pistol grip and a 18.5" barrel. The big question was if you needed to be 18 or 21 to buy one of these shottys. Id say 18 but being the thing is strictly pistol grip i could see where the 21 would be the age. I live in Montana any ideas on an age? Hell the kid behind the counter couldnt even tell us but i dont thing he could even tell us the difference between a rifle and a shotgun.

If it's over 26" its a long gun,you need only be 18(unless)-you live in a place like I do-Michigan-where they consider anything under 30" a pistol and must be registered and be 21 to buy(gay)(dumb)(stupid)!!

Sorry, gents, I have to disagree with you- and the ATF HAS ruled on this- it is 21.

A shotgun and rifle are defined as "fired from the shoulder". And that pistol gripped Mossy is not a pistol, it is an "other". If you read the regs, it says 18 for rifles and shotguns- 21 for "other". BTW, that includes buying a bare receiver. It actually is listed on the FFLs bound book as "other".

I did NOT say it would make sense- and I did not write the stupid reg.

well as of right now i know the guy put it on lay-a-way and he is 19 or 20 and didnt have any troubles. (yet) but i guess we will see when he goes to pick it up when he gets his next paycheck. hahaha

ill keep you up dated. Im kind of hoping your right now because if it doesnt work out with him getting it i may swing in and buy it for myself.
