    Tucson Open carry under 21

    Hey guys I was interested into getting into law enforcement so I went out and purchased an XD forty hoping to become more precise with it by the time I hopefully reach the academy and not only that I wanted to get a feel for actually carrying a weapon on me. The handgun was purchased legally for me through my uncle. Currently I am 20 . Would I need a bill of sale if I am able to carry it just in case I am stopped by an officer at a store?

    There is no gun registration in Arizona, no need to prove ownership in order to carry, so no you do not need a bill of sale.

    Minimum age to open carry is 18. Minimum age to conceal carry is 21.

    I strongly urge you to become knowledgeable on the gun laws of your state. You could do worse then to start here and follow all of the links. Taking a concealed permit course would be a good thing too (knowledge is power) even though you are presently below the minimum age to receive the permit now.

    You might consider taking college courses to earn your associate of arts degree in Criminal Justice - that would hold you in good stead should you actually pursue law enforcement as a career. You may find that you will need something to bring you even competitively with those candidates that have a military background. LE is a lot more than familiarity with guns.

    That's exactly what I'm doing at the moment have a year left. One of my professors was the Police captin for Tucson for the last 25 yrs dude knows his stuff. We chatted about oc in a car or truck but at the time I had a 12 gauge so I guess that's a whole different ballgame
