that would work, or if you have some other friends who own hand guns tell them you will buy the ammo if they let you shoot their pistols??

Like the .22 idea as well.  Great fun to shoot, cheap, keep your eye sharp for little cost.  Also quiet, so are able to shoot it in a lot of places where the louder report would bother people.
 
Just like the late great Jeff Cooper used to say: "Every self respecting household should have a .22"

That borders on strawman.  It could put your friend in a bind.  Count the time by saving up more money. Your gonna need a holster ect.  You might also want to take a class.

This doesn't border a "strawman", it IS a "straw" purchase!  Your buddy would be prosecuted!  What would happen I'm not sure, but it wouldn't be good and would cost him some $$$$.  Believe me, you can wait!  It's only 4 months.   Careful with the ammo purchase, I think you have to be 21 for that also.

When you turn 21, buy a USP.  It'll shoot circles around a FN.  If you do decide on a FN, get the 5.7....20+1 is hard to beat and fun to shoot (ammo is same price as .45 acp)

 You don't need to understand it. Like most gun-control laws, it was never intended to make sense.
 Your handgun purchase plan could very well get you and your friend into more trouble than you can imagine if a zealous prosecutor gets wind of it.
 Don't do it.

If you don't understand the law go to a lawyer. It will be cheaper in the long run. Plus you do not want to jeopardies a lifetime of owning firearms just because you are in a hurry. That attitude is enough to show you may not be mature enough to own a pistol yet. TAKE A CLASS.

Yeah.....too much bullsh*t.  Some states now even require paperwork for a neighbor to neighbor sale..............these are designed to screw up the innocent population.  Next thing we know Sarah Brady will be saying you are supplying guns to foreign powers--- like Mexico and Washington, DC!!

I'm certain you'll have to be 21.  To get a can, you'll have to jump thru all the proper BATF hoops.
