    The lawsuit is working it's way thru the court- here is docket schedule-
    •09/08/2010 - Complaint filed by plaintiff
    •12/22/2010 - Defendant's MTD
    •04/06/2011 - Defendant's MSJ due
    •05/18/2011 - Plaintiff's Cross-motion due

    FWIW- FEDERAL law forbids the sale of a handgun or handgun ammo BY A FEDERALLY LICENSED DEALER to persons under 21. Fed law does not apply to a sale by a private citizen to another citizen of the same state. State law applies. In a large number of states, the minimum age for unsupervised possession of a handgun is 18. (Yes, there are exceptions in the law- ranching, written permission of parents, on own property, etc).

    Remmy- I feel your pain (Gee, who said that?:rolleyes:) When I was 20, I was an Army 1LT. Controlled enough firepower to remove large parts of a small city- but could not go to a store and buy a freaking box of .45 ammo to get in a little extra practice. I have a 14 yr old granddaughter that has been my shooting partner for 4 years- and to be legal, I have to have written permission from her mom in my wallet.

    Hang in there- better days are coming.
