Since the Assault Type weapons laws back in '94, have the age to purchase an AR-15 type rifle changed? Or is it still classified as a rifle under Texas, US law? I would assume it is 18 correct? [>:/]

As far as i know it is 18, at least thats how it is here in the PRNJ. The best thing you can do is either go to your local gun shop and ask, or give the state police a call. Either way you should get a firm answer.

I'm in Tennessee and bought my first AR15 in 1998 when I was 18. Went in and bought it the day after Columbine, not to mention I look like I'm 16 now (and I'm 20), so I thought they'd think I was nuts. Turned out they were all cool about it and told me it was good I was buying it now because of what had happened.

I'm sure it's 18. I bought my first AR15 when I was 18 too. Now, I have 4 AR15s with 3 of them being preban. I'm pretty sure it's 18. I think most of us would be surprised actually if we knew how many 18 year olds buy AR15s. I've talked to over 5 guys honestly who said that they bought their first AR when they were 18.

Myself and a close freind of mine both got AR's at the age of 18. I know lots of people around the age of 18-19 who buy AR's or AK's. The Azalin

It's 18, except for Aggies [;)].

If you are in doubt, NEVER rely on local police or this talk forum for legal advise as they may not be up on the current law in your area. Make two phone calls, one to your local ATF office and the other to your local District Attorneys Office..and get the name of who you spoke with. Remember it's the prosecuting attorneys that will put you in prison for violations.

In Ohio O.R.C.2923.211A No person under eighteen years of age shall purchase or attempt to purchase a firearm. I don't know about other states, but I would imagine that 18 is the general rule. I would find out for sure before attempting to buy though. Hope this helps. Pirate
