Cool, if you're considered an adult at 18 in this country, you should have the responsibilities as well as the privileges. A kind of 'limited adulthood' has been the norm and should be modified. You should either be an adult or not. If they will issue a permit at 18, you should go for it. Good luck!I can own, and carry a pistol, and own a CCW at 18, thought I cannot purchase a pistol or ammunition, except from a private seller.
