    I carry a power line 15xt* Air powered bb*,I have had it for a year, I only carry it open every now and then, I got tired of having to explain my self to every one. Had the cop's called a few time's. I mostly just leave it on the dash bored now, It is allway's in it's holster. It's not a powerful gun. I go to a shooting range around my home town, And i am tired of getting made fun of about it. I do love my gun, I also own a 30-06 witch i love, But i am 18 and tired of getting made fun of about it. I will get new pistol when i turn 21.

    I am just wondering if you guy's see any problem with it, Just like when i bought my rifle i walked out of wallmart with this guy strapped to my waist.

    It is under my pillow at night and my 30-06 is under my bed.

    You can own a handgun at 18 legally, you just need to buy it at a private sale.

    Is this the BB gun you have? http://www.airgunsbbguns.com/Daisy_1..._p/day15xt.htm

    Personally I wouldn't want to rely on a BB gun for defense. It might cause a lot of pain and bury some BBs into someone but I don't think it would penetrate deeply enough to effectively stop someone who was determined.

    You sleep with a BB gun under your pillow? I thought only people in movies slept with "guns" under their pillows...

    ya Check the local classifieds, newspapers and local online adds. Find a nice handgun and buy it. totally legal. as long as the guy you buy it from is not one of these crazy people who think you have to be 21 just because the store says so, you wont have a problem.

    I have bought all of my handguns that way. and i have quite a few. Ignore all the goofy things the guns shops have posted and looking the private gun sale laws you find there are lots of things you can do contrary to popular belief.

    Just do your research and check prices at the gun shops and gunbroker.com so you dont over pay, cycle the action a couple times and make sure there are no obvious problems.


    Oh and when you go to buy ammo at the store for your new handgun, and they give you the raft of crap about you not being 21 to buy handgun ammo, explain to them that it is for your rifle. (you need to have a rifle model in mind to match your caliber, but almost all handgun calibers have a rifle counterpart) An example of that is 9mm used in numerous handguns as well as the Hi Point carbine and the LAR-9mm, or 357mag used in the Marlin lever actions
    OR
    explain to them that the ammo policy is a store policy and not a law because the federal FFL book says 12 years old to buy rim fire (e.g. 22lr, 17HMR, 5mm, ect) 16 years old to buy rifle and shotgun (e.g. 30.06, 270, 12ga, ect.) and 18 years old to buy handgun(45acp, 380, 357mag, ect.) unless in use for a rifle

    I will look and see if I can find the reference for this I read it in a dealers FFL book once and wrote down the section.

    Let us know when you get one and what it is. Good luck on your first handgun.

    You don't seriously have a 15XT do you? I love BB guns and sometimes I carry them instead of a firearm. Which is my preference.

    If you like BB guns let me suggest a Crossman Pro 77. It has blowback and once you own it, you will love it so much that you will not be in such a hurry to get a real gun at 21.

    By the way, my first BB gun was a 15XT. I thought it was great. Then I bought my Pro 77 and I wanted to throw my 15XT in the trash. I still have it though. Just a great gun.
