If a mod closed your thread, which is obviously what happened, you can't reopen it.

A mod must've decided your thread was in violation of some policy.

And: If "mom" decided she isn't on board, forget about "18" either if you plan to stay in her house. My Mom wasn't thrilled either, but I still had my dad around....
My advice, wait until you move out and are making decisions on your own.

That sucks. You could take her to a slaughter house, then have her watch some hunting on the outdoors channel and ask one she would prefer for the procuring of meat. :-P She's the boss till your 18, but maybe you have a uncle or relative you could go out with and learn the ropes. Possibly help sway your moms decision as well.

rule of thumb, whoever holds the purse strings makes the decisions. and..whoever owns the roof, calls the shots.

Again,..we're not trying to steer you away from Us, shooting, or the lifestyle, but with a non-supportive parent(and I assume she is raising you Solo) She most prob. will not change her tune, even if you tell her you are going to "move out" when you turn of age. In My case, I had a Father who was in LE, as well as Being a Military reservist, and several uncles & cousins who also were LE's, and shooters.... Continue to educate yourself. Eventually you will get your chance. If you "switch up" tactics, you can tell her you want a .22 for target shooting comps.....

Your asking for help trying to bypass the rules and wishes of your legal guardian. I see that as no different than bypassing the law. Please cease and desist in this effort. Your free to discuss firearms here but not to use this forum in aiding you to end run your parents.
