I have joined this forum because I recently tried to purchase a handgun and was denied. I was under the impression most of my life that one can legally purchase a handgun at the age of 18. This is not the case. However, you can legally have a handgun registered to you at the age of 18. I have started researching handgun laws, and a lot of them don't make sense, and are fairly convoluted.
I am interested to learn more about handguns, their uses, ballistics, mechanics, and laws. I want to purchase one for personal protection against all enemies, be it a man or a bear
