    I just waded through the Firearm Laws and Questions, all 20 pages pages of it. Somewhere in there I had a moment of clarity and remembered an event from my past.
    Back in the late 70's I sold a Colt 1911 to a trooper in my unit. We were both over 21 but neither of us were originally residents of the state our unit was based in. I never thought about it until today. Ignorance was bliss, then. Glad the statute of limitations has passed.

    there is no statute of limitations on crime, you should probably keep this to yourself. lol

    Aren't military exempt? I was stationed in CA but was from FL in 82. I bought from a Gun shop there, and later sold the same item to another out of towner soldier. Laws were different back then as well I'm sure. I don't worry about it but wonder what became of that weapon.

    What do I know? But,,, I thought the only two crimes that did not have a statutes of limitations was murder and tax fraud.

    I was also in the military in the seventies, and military folks were granted resident rights for FFL purposes in the state they were stationed at.

    I also am a Cav Trooper and made a deal involving a 1911 in the period of time you described. Any chance you were 3/5 ?

    Also: you don't have to be over 21 to purchase (or sell) a handgun: Can individuals between 18 and 20 purchase and own handguns? | The Freedom Foundation
