My stepdad has a pistol that I want to buy from him. 3 Questions:
1.Is it legal for me to own a pistol in Texas if I am under 21?
2.If so, is it legal for him to sell me the pistol?
3.Can a person under 21 obtain a concealed cary permit in Texas?
Thanks for the help in advance.

IIRC the answers are:

yes
yes
no

For more definite answers you should really ask in the Texas hometown forum.

Indiana is the only state I know to allow 18-20 year olds to aquire a permit. I'm 18, but when I am in AZ I carry openly

You gotta be 21 to get your CHL in texas. I believe you can take the class and have everything ready up to 6 months before your birthday, but you'll still have a 60 day wait afterward before you'll have a license issued to you.

Thanks a lot, that helps quite a bit. Now I know when to get the process started.
