    You can OC a handgun at 18 in Kentucky. You can not purchase a handgun until you are 21. Possess but not purchase.
    Speed is fine
    Accuracy is final

    I think you can still even purchase a handgun in KY at 18, but are prohibited from doing so from a licensed dealer.

    237.020 Right of Kentucky residents, out-of-state residents, and residents of other countries to buy firearms.
    (1) Residents of the Commonwealth of Kentucky who are citizens of the United States shall have the right to purchase or otherwise acquire rifles, shotguns, handguns, and any other firearms which they are permitted to purchase or otherwise acquire under federal law and the Kentucky Revised Statutes from properly licensed dealers, manufacturers, importers, or collectors, and unlicensed individual persons in Kentucky or in any other state or nation outside of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
    (2) Residents of states other than the Commonwealth of Kentucky who are citizens of the United States shall have the right to purchase or otherwise acquire rifles, shotguns, handguns, and any other firearms which they are permitted to purchase or otherwise acquire under federal law and the Kentucky Revised Statutes from properly licensed dealers, manufacturers, importers, or collectors, and from unlicensed individual persons in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

    I certainly could be wrong. But really, who's going to know if you're purchasing or borrowing or what. Without gun registration, does it really matter how you got it? I suppose you always run the risk of buying stolen property if you buy it 2nd hand.
