Hey guys,
   Here in the wonderfull state of Wisconsin, I can OWN a handgun, if purchased from a privated party, and not a dealer. (shouldn't it be the other way?) Anyways, I have to be 21 to buy ammo. I was thinking about getting into reloading and wondered if it was legal for me to buy "empty" brass? Any thoughts? Thanks.

They do make carbines and rifles that shoot 9mm, .45, .357, etc.  Just find an FFL that knows that such carbine exist, and tell him you own one of the appropriate carbines. (Obviously, dont go in bragging about your new-to-you 1911 and then say "I've got an HK USC, i'd like to buy some .45") Thats the way .22LR works, if you say its for a rifle, they can sell it to you if you are under 21, but it might not apply to bigger ammo.

  I researched this on TFL, someone from Wisconsin had written a letter to the Attorney General James Doyle, and he proceeded to say it was OK to recieve a handgun as a gift, if over 18 and under 21. It is also LEGAL for me to hunt with a handgun, because I am over 18. Not trying to start a flame war.. Just letting you know. BTW, Where in WI are you located?
