    Age to possess a handgun

    Ive been searching everywhere and can not find a Clear cut answer! So heres my situation, I am a Wisconsin resident and I live in NJ (Military), and I am also 19. In Wisconsin I legally obtained a 1911 pistol and I would like to bring it over here. Is it even legal to possess a handgun at 19 and transport it to and from the range? From all the searching I have done, all of the laws says you need to be 21 to purchase a handgun, however I can't find a minimum age just to possess a handgun. Thank you, maybe someone can shed some light on this.

    If you are in the military can't you shoot all your weapons on base?

    Do yourself a favor and leave on the free side of the river.

    NJ laws are completely Anti gun. It's not worth the gamble, leave it in WI.

    Thank you for the support! This state doesn't make sense haha! Ill talk to some people on base, maybe there is some loop hole since everything on base is federal law.

    Thank you for your service. The free side of the river he is referring to is Pennsylvania lol. A state that the liberals haven’t totally destroyed yet.

    Go and check with your SJA on the base, they will have the answer for you NOT THIS FORUMN, if you are on JBMDL (DIX SIDE) the SJA OFFICE IS IN BLDG 5418 LAKEHURST AND MCGUIRE YOU WILL HAVE TO ASK I AM UNSURE OF THEIR LOCATIONS.
