    In our lovely Kalifornia would a minor be able to purchase a rifle with a parents consent; or could said minor tell the parent what rifle they want and the parent buys it and then the minor pays the parent for the purchase of the rifle?

    I would check out your state laws regarding firearm purchases. I do know that in any state (as far as I know) a minor can have their parent purchase a firearm for them, because the firearm will be LEGALLY be owned by the parent and be listed in their name.

    So a minor could give their parent the money and the parent could purchase a rife for the minor with the minors currency?

    I wouldnt see why not, it would be YOUR rifle, but you let the kid shoot it basically. Make sure you check the laws first as CA can be a wanker about these type of things though.....

    Yes. As a matter of fact that's how I acquired my first firearm/rifle. I simply gave my father the money. and he purchased the firearm, and he was listed as the owner, but I was really the owner he just simply was the legal owner of it.

    Just don't let the parent say "I'm buying it for my youngster."

    That could open a can of worms.

    That is very true.
