Please, just an anecdote, lighten up.
I understand that, I was referring to the oddity of now when long gun and handgun ammunition are used in both style guns.
Alright thanks everybody. Thank you all for the helpful information. I'm gonna go put my 9mm rifle in my truck now with two loaded mags.
Hey, no buddy can accuse the government of having any sense.
Years ago a Sports Authority in Long Island,NY refused to sell me 357 mag or 38 spl ammo since I did not have a NY handgun permit, even though I had a NYC rifle permit for my 1894CS. It was their company policy.
I drove to a real gun store and made the purchase with any issues.
Been awhile since I have looked it up but IIRC you can possess a hand gun at 18 in TX you just can’t purchase one from an FFL. https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/PE/htm/PE.46.htm#46.06
Same thing with ammunition except I don’t know of any age restriction on possession. They will sell reloading components and equipment to anyone with a pulse.
Yep, carry i nthe truck is legal (just not at the post office--different rant).
No LTC until 21 (unless you pull a military hitch).
This is likely a situation where OP is better off at a (good) LHS, where they can do things like say "Would you use this ammo in a carbine?" To establish that the pending purchas is for a long arm.
Some retailers are just going to be jerks.
It's not like when I walked to the Gibsons in Plainview, Texas in 1968 with four bits for a box of .22lr (and a dime for a Coke). They gave me bac my penny in change, and which me luck versus the rats. Not a single mention of the beat-up H&R shingle shot with me.
The OP was asking about carrying ammunition for his rifle in his vehicle, not about owning or possessing a handgun.
What's an "LHS"?
Quote the rest of the post and it will make more sense...
A misspelling of "LGS" local gun shop.
Atf doesnt do state laws
Dogtown tom answered your question correctly and in detail...AND I believe is in TX also....what more do you want??
Nothing dude... I got my answer a long time ago...
Separate names with a comma.
