    Could an 18 yr old from Ohio purchase a Handgun in Indiana????

    Can a resident of Ohio purchase a gun in Indiana?

    If so....

    Would an 18 Year Old from Ohio be able to purchase a Handgun in Indiana?

    If so.....

    Would said 18 year old be legal to Open carry?

    (Ohio has a Purchase and Receive Law but no Possession Law.)

    Edit: and if not Indiana.... Any other state? I know there are a couple out there that allow 18 year olds to purchase handguns.

    21 is Federal if buying from a licensed dealer.

    I didn't know that. How do 18 year olds come into possession of their guns in States where its legal to CC/OC at 18?

    Probably not.

    You have to be 21 to get a handgun from a dealer, if a handgun is bought out of state, it must be sent to a dealer in the purchasers home state and the buyer do the transfer there.

    It not a matter of where it's bought, there's more to it when it comes to non-residents buying handguns.

    In most cases the handguns are gifts from parents, pending on state law it is legal to "gift" a handgun to a relative.

    Handgun AMMO is also restricted to 21 year olds. Make sure you tell them that box of 9mm is for your carbine!

    Do residency restrictions apply to private sales as well?

    Yes, you cannot buy a handgun from a private individual who lives in another state. The seller must ship it to an FFL holder in your state. Then you have to fill out the paperwork at the dealer and, usually, pay a "transfer" fee for their time and effort. Your regular state rules would apply. So, to answer you question..."no". You could not go to another state where it is legal for 18 year olds to purchase a handgun and buy one. You would have to be a resident of that state (in this case, Indiana). If it is legal for you to own one in OH, but not purchase one, the only legal way for you to obtain it is if you are given one a gift.

    I'd be very careful here...

    Careful? That's how it can be legal. Do the legwork yourself. I am not a lawyer and do not give legal advice. Only fools do things without thinking.

    I think you should read this:

    ATF Online - Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling
