    If you sell guns in Ga the ATF is doing their under 21 pistol ammo buy crap again. They are sending in under age buyers to purchase pistol ammo. We had 2 come by work yesterday so make DAMN SURE you check ID on ammo purchases. It is BS and we all know it but it IS the law so be careful!

    This is so f-ing stupid. Why couldn't they just say it's for a rifle/carbine and buy it anyhow. :screwy:

    I agree its stupid but I don't think that someone under 21 could buy it even if they said it was for a rifle because its considered handgun ammo.
    Just my opinion.

    it's basically like when they do stings on business that sell alcohol and tobacco products. They'll send in someone underage and see if the clerk will sell without checking for I.D. You can lose your license for doing so and won't be able to sell related products for weeks. Happens all the time.

    Maybe we all could email our local dealers, or give them a phone call to remind them to check for ID on pistol ammo sales.

    I did.

    Good question. Is there a list of what calibers are considred "pistol" rounds?

    The .22LR is America's most popular rifle round. And the most popular pistol round!
    Or .22 Magnum? That round was invented as a small game and predator control round to be shot from a rifle, but it's pretty popular in handguns too. Still, I'd call it a rifle round.

    Are there any others that are not primarily one or the other? I can't think of any right now.

    So... if you are 19 years old and you actually happen to find a shop that has a Marlin Camp-45 sitting on the shelf... and you buy it, and you buy magazines for it, you will not be allowed to purchase the ammo to go try to shoot it on the range in the back right then? Just so we are clear...

    I hav been ID'd for an ammo purchase at Wally-World before... I show my GFL. It took a long time to actually purchase the ammo then since they dont consider that a government issued ID.... hmmm.

    So an 18 year old may buy a handgun, and keep it loaded and in their own vehicle, but they can't buy ammo for it? :screwy: If I then buy the ammo, and give it to a minor, am I also going to jail? I would be if I were buying cigarettes for them. So how does an 18 year old legally get ammo?

    As of right now the .22 in any form (Mag , LR, Short etc) is NOT considered a pistol round because it was ORIGINALLY intended to be used in rifles.

    Indeed they can sir. Not a single component of reloading requires you to be over 21. :shakehead:

    Last time I bought some .38's at WalMart the lady asked (after the cash register reminded her) 'do you have a pistol or rifle'. I said both and confused her.
