Got a question. I've looked at sites like ammo-one.com to buy some ammo for my budding collection. The problem with that site and some others is that they require a minimum order of $35 plus $15 that goes to FedEx ground shipping. I simply can't afford to pay $50 every time I want something new. I also can't use auction sites to buy ammo because my parents won't allow it (I'm 15). I don't want to use the gunshow route either because I only go to two gunshows a year and there's never anyone selling collectible ammo. Is there ANYWAY I can collect ammo with jumping through hoops or waiting a long time?

what about Ebay? don't know if they might have some as collectables or not. maybe start some type of networking with people who collect cartridges.

I am afraid that if your parents are not supporting your hobby you should wait until you are 18 to indulge in it to the extent that you would like. You cannot legally purchase ammo at 15.

Have your parents been supportive of your education in firearms so far?

No they're fine fine with it they just don't want me to use an auction site like gunbroker.To be honest I know more about guns than my parents. I sort of just educated myself
Not to say that my dad doesn't know about guns , because he certainly knows a lot. And yes I know I can't buy live ammo at 15.

I have a son who is your age so I tend to think from a parent's perspective.

i forgot he's only fifteen. that does present a problem. well there is always your parents. explain to them what you're trying to collect and hopefully they will be able to help you.

surely there are others who collect cartridges and could help you find them.

Houston....we have a problem.....

And that being that you are a minor. That means it is ILLEGAL in ALL of the US to sell you any live ammo.

Now, I have GIVEN cartridges to local folks (with the approval of their parents) and even shipped some to a gent (remote area, Idaho) that was helping his grandson, a budding collector. But ammo cannot be sent by US Mail, so shipping costs DO tend to spiral.

I know you don't want to hear this, but without the active involvement of your folks, you are going to have to wait. sorry-
