    I understand that, I was referring to the oddity of now when long gun and handgun ammunition are used in both style guns.

    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"?
