    WA Handgun laws

    Im trying to figure out the Washington State handgun law system for people under 21
    Is it legal for someone under 21 to possess a handgun?
    from what I can gather, you can be under 21 and purchase a handgun from a private sale but can only have it in your home or unloaded in your car on your way to a range
    but I could be wrong
    anybody know?

    Here is the part you were talking about.
    RCW 9.41.240: Possession of pistol by person from eighteen to twenty-one.

    By this if you are between 18 and 21, you may have and carry a loaded pistol at home, a place of buisness, and any realestate you may own, or your family owns.

    Private sale won't violate state law:
    RCW 9.41.080: Delivery to ineligible persons.

    Refers back to my first post for definitions of ineligible persons. Cutoff age is 18, felon, insane, etc.

    IANAL but I believe only FFL's would be restricted from selling to you (assuming you are eighteen but not yet twenty one).

    How you get around transporting it since you can't possess it outside your home or at work... (see raevans post)
