Under federal law. Handguns have an age limit of 21 and over. State law is the guiding rule for rifles & shotguns. That's for NFA weapons too.. (Basically, there are 2 ways that an individual (who is not prohibited by Federal, State, or local law from receiving or possessing firearms) may legally acquire NFA firearms:
1.By transfer after approval by ATF of a registered weapon from its lawful owner residing in the same State as the transferee.
2.By obtaining prior approval from ATF to make NFA firearms.
[27 CFR 479.62-66 and 479.84-86 ]
In addition, a Corporation, LLC, or Firearms Trust may acquire NFA Firearms that are nor prohibited by Federal, State, or local law.

Incorrect. One may purchase and possess a handgun at 18, provided that the firearm was purchased in a private sale. (or gifted from a family member)
The 21-and-over law simply regulates the age to purchase from a dealer.
