here in indiana you can lawfully carry a handgun with a ltc at the age of 18. im not 21 yet so ill just say 18 as a reference. the law says that you have to be 21 to buy a handgun from a "dealer". can you legally buy a used handgun from a private person such as someone you know and carry it with a LTC?
i was reading up on http://www.in.gov
under the firearms section and i cant find anything that would contradict it. i also cant find where it says there is no registering of a handgun. is it possible? or is the only way through a legal guardian?
Get your lifetime license to carry, then buy a handgun off a parent, friend, or off of someone else via private sale. Indiana is one of those few states that respect the rights of adults that are 18, 19, or 20.
