Walmart asks "handgun or rifle" for rimfire and "traditional" handgun calibers. Said BATFE requires it since can be 18 to own long gun, but 21 for handgun. Since Contenders can be had in rifle calibers, question is meaningless.

Your government at work.

Not just the store get fined (which they would too), but I personally COULD GO TO JAIL. And yes, the state runs sting operations. Yea, you were going to show me your ID, or the smokes/chew/beer stayed in the store. Didn't matter to me.

I got the "They're for my mother" line a lot, too.
I didn't give the guy a hard time. But, anybody who would card me to establish that I'm over 18 is an idiot. Most places like Walmart have a sign that says "we card for people under 30" regarding alcohol or tobacco. Walmart has a forced response for the cashiers so they have to card buyers. Any cashier with common sense would look at me for a second and then hit a button on the register and continue ringing my order up because it is obvious I was over 30 when I still bought alcohol.

It's conceivable that someone who looks 29yo could actually be 17.9yo. There is simply no way a 17yo could have the salt and pepper hair and wrinkles I have. Not only did the guy card me, he had me remove my DL and hand it to him while he actually studied it and compared my photo and face several times.

There is something called "reasonable". It was not reasonable to card me for 18 years. I figure this store might have gotten popped for selling to underage by accident and now they were over reacting. Whatever the reason, the clerk was polite and I wasn't going to give a guy making prolly $7.00 and hour for doing his job. It's not like he was giving me a hard time just for the his own entertainment. But to say "I would have carded you too" is silly. I get a pension for crying out loud. It is in no way reasonable to think I'm in high school.

The validity of your objection is acknowledged.

He is APPROPRIATING my line! I, of course, shall retaliate by suing him, and we shall spend the next eight years or so paying lawyers to cast aspersions on each other's IQ, parentage, eyesight, ancestry, and sense of direction!

On second thought, just let him steal it.

I stopped in at a local store to buy a 6 pack of beer. She asked me what my date of birth was. I asked why she needed that and she told me it was a new rule for alcohol purchase. I told her 1990. She entered it into the system. I'm 60.

Twenty one to buy handgun, not own. I can own one here in nm at nineteen, and I did. Just had my parents buy it for me as a gift. Ammo was a pain to buy though. Just said it was for a carbine and no more problems
