Alright...My brother and I got to talking about this on the way home from the range today after seeing some of the older gents shooting their handguns. We have always wanted to shoot handgun competitions and we have both seen kids as young as 12 shooting in these tournaments.... My question to all of you IS: Is it legal for my father to buy a handgun for me in order to shoot these competitions? Do I need to be a member of a certain club? Whose name would it be registered under? I live in NY by the way...so I'm not getting my hopes up.
