    illegal to posses a handgun/pistol at age 18?

    I've been considering getting a handgun for some time now ever sense I've been held up and robbed some time ago. But of course haven't done so due to not having a solid understanding for state, nor federal law. So would it be legal to purchase a pistol(private purchase) and carry itonmy peperson, and in my vehicle?

    You will have some hoops to jump through to possess, don't see that you'll be able to carry.
