If your at least 18yrs old it can be partially concealed if holstered. No need to be 100% visible. At least the way I read the AZ gun Laws.

You can open carry but you only get one bullet and that has to be kept in your pocket.

BC or another LEO needs to set us all straight. I still stand by my original statement that an 18 year old being able to openly carry, and that means partially concealed if holstered, etc. I know he can't buy the gun or the ammo.

I will try to find the book on AZ gun laws at home. I don't really know the answer but I stick by not allowing him to have ammo like Barney Fife.

CORRECT

And that is why my dad still has my handgun, and why I don't bother him for it. Haha. Aside from that, I do want to have my CCW before I have it in my household and ...Might bother for the rifles though to borrow if I want to go shooting up by Lake Pleasant, lol jk. ;)

I thought the hand gun law was a federal law not a state law its 21
the only way that anyone under 18 (with the exception of military ) can carry one is if he/she is with a parent guardien or someone over 21 years of age.


Thats one reason cops have to be over 21 is so they can legally carry a handgun.
Come to think about it, I believe boatcop or one of the LEOS touched on this when that nutjob cop that was 20 up north shot some people and his girlfriend.
I will have to go find that post later today.

Federal law prohibits firearms dealers from selling or delivering a shotgun or rifle, or ammunition for a shotgun or rifle, to any person the dealer knows or has reasonable cause to believe is under the age of 18. 18 U.S.C. § 922(b)(1), (c)(1). Dealers are prohibited from selling or delivering other firearms (e.g., handguns) or ammunition for those firearms to any person the dealer knows or has reasonable cause to believe is under the age of 21.

Federal law provides less stringent age restrictions with respect to sales by unlicensed persons. Unlicensed persons may not sell, deliver or otherwise transfer a handgun or handgun ammunition to any person the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe is under the age of 18. 18 U.S.C. § 922(x)(1), (5). Exceptions are provided for temporary transfers made for specified activities, including employment, ranching, farming, target practice and hunting 18 U.S.C. § 922(x)(3). Federal law provides no age limitations with respect to the sale of a long gun by an unlicensed person.

Federal law prohibits, with certain exceptions, the possession of a handgun or handgun ammunition by any person under the age of 18. 18 U.S.C. § 922(x)(2), (5). Federal law provides no minimum age for the possession of long guns.

Several state laws mirror federal dealer restrictions regarding the sale of firearms, i.e., handgun purchasers must be at least 21 years of age and long gun purchasers must be at least 18. Illinois appears to be the only state with age restrictions that are more stringent than those provided by federal law (in most cases, no one under the age of 21 may lawfully purchase or possess a handgun or long gun in that state).

Many states have no minimum age requirements for the purchase or possession of a long gun. As a result, in those states, children can legally buy long guns from unlicensed persons. Pursuant to federal law, however, firearms dealers are prohibited from selling a long gun to anyone under the age of 18.

damn maybe I am wrong :eek:, the states look like they can superceed the handgun federal law.
