That would have been 25 years ago. Just becuase you have the right to buy something doesn't mean some idiot isn't going to try to stop you.
I'm simply out of touch. I came along before it was illegal to do much of anything. I never was too young to buy ammo or most weapons anything else, and I passed the 21 barrier before there was one.
My sons are independent cusses, and have always handled things pretty much on their own.
I do wonder how the federal boys would deal with one Indiana law. You can technically own a handgun here while under eighteen, if that handgun is given to you by a family member, or inherited from a family member. You can't carry it, but you are allowed to use it on your own property at any age.
