    According to the info on PDO, and the state code itself, the minimum age to get a carry permit in Delaware is 18.

    Apparently there is no minimum age to possess a firearm, though it is a crime for a parent of a child under 16 to allow them to possess a firearm unsupervised. The only mention of age to carry is regarding the concealed-carry permit (18 y/o). Otherwise, open-carry of a handgunby an adult appears to be legal.

    I'm no lawyer, so it would be worth checking with one in your state, but I see nothing that would keep her from open-carrying a handgun...

    Be Safe!

    Does anyone know if Delaware permits are recognized by the Commonwealth?
