    So as most of you probably know, I am a young trader (19). I do own handguns that I have gotten privately. I am sick of having to explain myself & why I have handguns to people. I just lost out on a good deal. The trader doesnt feel like the trade is legal. So how can I help somebody understand that I am legal to own handguns at the age of 18+. & Im not talking about being gifted a handgun by a parent. Im talking about about finding one on the internet & buying it. being under 21. In the state of OR......I would like to get 2 main answers...I know these answers...this is for everyone else....I have posted things like this over & over for each person that tells me what im doing is illegal:thumbup: Mod advise is also appreciated

    (1) Is it legal to trade a handgun for a long rifle, if you are 18+ under 21 in OR?

    (2) Is it legal to trade a handgun for handgun, if you are 18+ under 21 in OR?

    (3) Is it legal to sell a handgun privately to somebody over 21, if you are 18 + under 21 in OR?

    Thanks matt W...as far as I know, as long as the person receiving the handgun is not a FFL than the trade is legal.:thumbup:

    this must fall under Federal jurisdiction since the ORS says age 18. FFL is federal firearms license. So as long as you are outside the federal jurisdiction, you are ok - that's the way I read it.

    Just a heads up, I would be sure to only sell a pistol to a Oregon resident 21 or over :thumbup:

    My apologies, I did not know that and had no intentions of tainting someones sale, I simply wanted to make sure they weren't putting themselves in a bad situation.... I am not here to bicker about what is right or what is wrong in someones for sale ad but I do appreciate your info as that is news to me :)

    show me where it is legal./


    What makes you think we’re all guys? (Maybe we are, but never assume.)
    It is legal to own a handgun if you are younger than 21(but "over 18"). The prohibition is against purchase, not possession.(FFL holders may not sell handguns or handgun ammo to persons under 21)
    As for "registration" understand that when a firearm is purchased FROM A FEDERALLY LICENSED DEALER, there is a de facto registration thanks to the "background check."
    However, this does NOT apply to firearms obtained through transfers from private parties. So, if the gun in question was obtained through a private transfer that took place outside of a legally defined "gun show" there is no registration of any kind.
    Go to the Oregon Gun Laws link on our web site for the entire law.




    attention to this line.


    "The prohibition is against purchase, not possession"
