I've been doing a ton of research and can't seem to find a Missouri specific answer to my question. Because im only 19 (soon to be 20), i know it is illegal for me to buy a handgun in Missouri. But for my birthday I wanted my mother to buy me a handgun and "hold onto it" until im 21. Is this, in general, illegal at all? Or is it at least manageable? If i did get the handgun, would it be illegal for me to transport and take it to the range (without my mother) and shoot it? what about to a private property? Anybody who can help me with this I thank greatly. The last thing I want to do is get her in trouble with the law because of a gun that isn't even hers!!
